The snow is finally melting, and here in the Northeast we are seeing the light behind the tunnel......SPRING! It has been a hard winter. I usually enjoy snow, but this was just tooooooo much.
I am looking forward the warmer temperatures. My mind is filled with all things Easter. I have doodled some sketches for new OOAK pieces. Tomorrow I begin sculpting! Bunny, chick and egg ornies! Oh my!
Last week I began pulling out some of my favorite vintage molds too! Mixing paper mache. Coming up with a new color palette. I like to mix my own colors...it's just me :)
Though I love the creativity of sculpting my own designs, there is something so nostalgic about vintage holiday molds. They bring back memories of childhood and the innocent excitement of the holidays like nothing else.
This grouping of bunny friends are dry and primed. Stay tuned for the unvailing.
One last remnant of winter before I get back to work. I finally finished my vintage Santa! In an earlier post, there were pics of this poor guy as I bought him on Ebay. But after some foot surgery, fresh paint, crackle medium, and antiquing, he looks good as (old) new! I love him. The photos aren't the best (I stink!). It doesn't show off how great the crackle looks. And, he needs a good coat of matte varnish, but I had to share. (View large)
