The newest addition to my polymer clay family is painted and ready for her photo shoot. When she was still in the sculpting stage, I was trying to decide if I wanted to make her a realistic looking catbird (all things considered) or if she would look better a little cartoony. I decided to go with a style that ended up reminding me of some of my favorite sculptures by Jim Shore. Granted, it’s FAR from Jim Shore, but I’m really happy with the outcome. I’m going to make another one soon and I want to try a much heavier hand at mimicking that style. We’ll see!
Anyway, here is the finished product.
