Sculpey and stuff

Found some older pictures I meant to post a while back. This was all stuff my wife & I made to sell a festival last Fall at my kid’s school. (The 8th graders used to make and sell clay animals to sell for their class trip, and our Daughter always looked forward to seeing them at the festival, but in the last few years they’d stopped doing that, and we decided to fill in the gap.)

Almost everything sold, though I did keep one of the monsters and priced the box high because I realized I wanted it as a dice box.  🙂

I got suckered into making a photo-op cut-out (another parent did a nice job painting it).

The box is kind of a mimic. The eyes are clear glass beads, with the whites and pupils painted underneath so they follow you.

See?

That’s more or less how the illusion works on paintings and statues too.

The rest of the picutres are little creatures, bits of scenery for fairy gardens, and so on.  My wife did most of the gnomes and aliens; I did some monsters and things.  I also made a bunch of Greek mythological beings but did not get a chance to take pictures.

We have an oak tree that was going crazy with acorns last year, and when my daughter started saving twigs with acorn caps attached I got the idea to make clay faces in them. I am not sure why anyone would pay a dollar for them, as they have to use whatever, but they were kind of cute.

  1. That box is very cool. You could sell those like hotcakes at GenCon if the price were anything reasonable. I’d like one.

    • Thanks! I was asking $15 for it, which seemed a little high for the event but if I did a little more professional a job maybe that’s reasonable. I need to see how much a wooden box runs.
