Jazz Hands No 2 polymer animal sculpture in progress
Animals are my favorite subjects, and nothing is more fun for me than working on animals wearing fancy clothes. This classy lady is “Take 2” on a piece I did earlier this summer called Jazz Hands. The original sold already so I figured the idea was a good one. This finished work is now available in my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MarieYoungCreative
Polymer Animal Sculpture: The Process
This time I wanted to do a more anthropomorphic, art doll interpretation of the “Jazz Hands” concept. Here you can see some in progress shots. I had worked on her head earlier this month and today was time for some body shaping. My muse was really cooperating so I made great progress.
I love how these projects lead to some interesting conversations between my husband and me. Today’s quality-control collaboration:
Me: “Are my raccoon’s boobs lopsided?
Rob: No words, but a squinty face that means “I want to say something, but I’m afraid to.”
Rob: “Don’t ask if you don’t really want my opinion.”
Me: “I’ll take that as a yes.”
Rob: “Yes, the left one is bigger”
Original Jazz Hands
The piece below is the first take on the theme. It sold this fall when I featured it at Grin Gallery in Bedford, PA.
