No 4, A little Paint

Batons cut and hot glued in place, acrylic paint applied.
The Cheshire Cat, caused such self doubt when I was painting him as I find it very hard to position the brushes on 3D objects, with my loss of vision and subsequent perspective, but got there in the end.

They will be a lot more colourful, once I've added their ribboned collars and charms. I was working towards creating a whole bunch of these on The Alice in Wonderland theme, with a larger model for the reveal for The 2nd ADO Challenge( Sign up Today, and runs till July 8th, reveal then through the following weekend on all the participating blogs. Sadly I had forgottened how long these little guys take to make. Still, I will try and see what and Who I can make before the challenge runs its course.

These are wonderful Linda, can I ask what you make them from?

Linda said...

Thank you all for the great comments, keeps you going on bad days :)
Sonia, relax, the brain tumor destroyed the optic nerves in my left eye, when my right eye gets tired, I find it harder to cope with the messed up perspectic. :)
Jackie, they are made from Eberhard Paper Clay, they come in packets approx 4x8" and 3/4" thick 250g. 8.81ozs,£5-65p. Just as you get used to something here, they stop stocking it, the next two packets after the one I have will beFimo Air Light, same size except its £6.50p a pack. The paper clay has been brilliant, it doesnt go far if you make solid objects, but you could model on a foam or paper base.

Perspective, my spelling gets no better. :)
