Plaster and Clay...

While I was filming about alternative substrates for my {Held}Captive class, with my clay packet open, I got a little distracted with this beautiful girl. She's weighing in at almost 4lbs already.  I've reconstructed her around 4 times now.  I think we might be settled for now.

I will film painting her for my classroom.  And I can't wait to find her there.

 Her bird is leaning with the tilt of her head - I love that.

 This hand though...

 At last, I love her profile.

Can I tell you how much I love clay and plaster and the natural feeling of it all.  I could get lost here for weeks with my hands all clayed up.  Maybe because it's so playful.  I love painting on clay and plaster - there is something rather delicious about it.
