WIP: Baby Lun

at Jessica’s Jewel Box and thought it’d make the best bed for her…

Welcome to Story doll™.

Everything is still a work in progress but I’m happy to finally start sharing more of what I’ve been working on since last year.

I wrote in my blog about my decision to stop making cloth creatures due to hand pain issues and proceeded to switch to clay.

I’ve posted WIP photos of my progress…
My first poly-clay doll
More WIPs
More characters…
The Faith Box

I’ve been holding off on sharing the full story about it all because I’ve been doing research on the right clay paint, web design, and learning things I need to learn. After spending months on all that, I realized that I will never be done with research and learning new things so I might as get started with unveiling my mystery project…

Here’s the working mastheads I’ve made so far…

Everything is a work in progress at this point. Here’s hoping I’ll be finished with the major CI work by the first day of the new year, and so it is!

Yellow sunrise, that’s the name of the color that I painted my formerly black sewing table with…
Its finished!

Have a closer look…
Details: newly painted sewing table
See this large, here. I used this yellow on cream vintage wall paper I found at a yard sale late last summer.

Now my sewing station look so much brighter and filled with creative energy!

Far cry from its former dim state…

What a break that was. Exhilirating! Michael De Meng is right when he wrote, “You don’t have to make art to be making art.”

Next, my drawing/ sculpting table! Ha-haaaa!

Magiting's Armor
Magiting is the Filipino word for valor. Its a griffin commissioned by Lore Knutson. It is also the last cloth creature that I am making.

Here he is ready for a test flight with my little Egg as the pilot.

Now that its finished, I’m spending the next weeks doing face up of some resin doll parts and dolls to rest my aching wrists. Then its on to paper clay and polyclay doll and creature projects. Yay!

CTS and tendonitis is not fun but switching to clay is so much fun so its all good.

Meanwhile, off to bed I go.

My sweet little caretaker is especially excited now that the howdah’s made…
Yay!  We go flying now?
Egg: Yay! We go flying, now?
Creaturesmith: Yes baby. Don’t go too far and come back before dark. Okay?

Off to bed I go.

Happy weekend, everyone!

Next, I make his howdah and prepare him for the flight to his new home.

I’ve been working on this creature for quite a while now. As a result I’ve learned some new things.

Habagat's Beak
Made the beak from polyclay. Its my first time to use PC. I love it! See this large, here.

Had a time working out the wing structure. Still figuring this one out but here’s what it looks like with feathers…

My little caretaker loves her new charge, and as usual, wants to take him out on a ride to the yoghurt place at the corner. 🙂
Can we go to the park?

Have a look at the Easter Eve fireworks, here.

Have a blessed, peaceful and happy Easter, everyone!
