Hello my dear Blog ;)
It is so hot here, daily it ranges from 80-110. After a few days of 110, 80 doesn't feel like much of a relief.
Crank up the AC and close all the curtains...only go out at night. Play spooky music or watch creepy movies. I am starting to believe it could be close to autumn, well trying to convince myself.
Downstairs I can create a cool oasis, upstairs is another matter. Heat rises and windows that have no covering let in the dreaded sunshine... oh misery... I don't think I will sleep upstairs until September.
Sculpting has become either an early morning or evening activity as well. Warm polymer quickly becomes sticky polymer in the heat. Sculpting what started out as tiny hands soon become long elongated octopus tentacles. Little noses flatten on the faces and perky eye sockets start to look like droopy dopey ghosts. Not that ghosts are bad at all...maybe I should go with it? lol
ahh it isn't all that bad, a little bit of exaggeration going on ;) but I need to embellish to get the point across...it is hot here.
Along with the illusion that it is Autumn in my studio, I feel the urge to get some spooky girls done.
And as usual I take a look at those who have come before :D
From traditional dressed to dark wicked all the way to the sea, a sampling of wee witches from the past <3
