Steampunk Dress Sculpture

Hello Makers!

Got Gears? I do. In my my Steampunk dress sculpture I call "Pretty in Steel", sorta a play on the classic movie title "Pretty in Pink", if anyone remembers. This dress measures 11 inches in height and is about 7 inches at its widest point. I made this dress using polymer clay. I used about 2 pounds of clay. I did it in sections. I would add clay, metal faux screws, rivets, and gears, then bake. This way I can handle the piece while trying to add clay and keep from distorting the clay. I hope you like my dress.

Lost for Words - Altered Bottle

Hello Makers!

The inspiration for this altered bottle came to me when, recently, I was at a lost for words, literally. I shocked about something and could not find the words to express my feelings or maybe I just forgot the word I was it goes with these types of moments. It's like you can't reach your head's hard drive fast enough to retrieve words, memories. Sometimes you may find it and sometimes it's just lost.
