Hope your week is going well. If not, hopefully this week's craft will lighten your spirits, conjuring up the golden days of yore. As you may or may not know, I am a TV addict. Step 1 is admitting your problem, so I'm halfway to recovery. Step 2 involves digging deep, searching for the source of the problem. I thought I could accomplish this by creating TV-themed crafts. Let's see if it helps or heightens my TV addiction...
Another thing you may or may not know about me is that I'm really into polymer clay. You kids may remember it as "Fimo" but today there are tons of different brands.
Pretty good, if I do say so myself. I'm actually shocked it turned out so well, but from this photo the Arnold figure looks like it could be put into a claymation video.
Here are some photos sculpture making process.
First I set aside all the necessary Fimo colours I needed to create Arnold.
Plus his teeny tiny ball cap.
I actually spent way tooooo much time on his face. Like, using-tweezers-to-make-his-eyelids-perfect kind of time. It's not 100% perfect, but I'm still happy.
Now onto the body....
The final result (before putting it in the oven). I was so scared something bad would happen to it in the oven (like it would get burned to a crisp or explode to pieces) that I took a photo of it on the cookie sheet to prove its existence.
Here's Arnold in front of some floral printed item. I thought this could be his e-harmony profile picture...very suave.
