New Peeks for STJ- Humpty and Li'l Charmer!

Here's my latest sneak peeks for April's STJ Issue. This is a bobble Humpty.  I started him late last year & just got around to finishing his wall mount & base. 

 His armature is an actual L'eggs pantyhose plastic egg.  Who remembers those packaging containers? I found these at a yard sale last summer in a bag with styro balls and instantly thought Humpty.  

This is my third interpretation of Humpty.  Humpty #1 was made in '07 and was similar to this but smaller.  Humpty #2 was called "After the Fall" and was made of a goose egg that I broke apart then reinforced with a coating of Liqua-shay. I  sculpted on that in pieces then  arranged it to look as if he had fallen and broken into bits.  Casting resin was also used to mimic egg white.  

Here is Joanie with a Halloween Makeover.  Now known as Li'l Charmer.  I tried to remake the bunny into a black cat but it just became bulky so this kitty is made of paperclay.  I think this look suits her better, don't you?

The Castle Bootique

Seems like we have a winner! Thanks Gourdie for all your hard work getting the Bootique off the ground.

My Party Girl kitty (see pic below) sold to a fellow artist (Thanks Karen!) and The Mad Hatter sold to a previous buyer of Alf the Elf (Thanks Barbara!)! This is my second piece to Karen as well : - ). I feel honored by both and take their interest as the highest of compliments.

Please take a look as there are still some great stuff available from some very talented artists!

Joanie is posted for sale on STJ but is currently unavailable as she is receiving a Halloween makeover. Stay tuned!
