The Frankenstein Bowls...

Yesterday I decided to make a green and black bowl to go with my Haunted House bowls. I googled Halloween coloring pages, and found this picture of Frankenstein....and thought~ Perfect!! I used Scuply III to make the cane: Moss, Magenta, and Black. It took me a couple of hours to get it built, and was so excited to see what the cane looked look once I rolled it out, I forgot to take pictures!! One day I'll have to do a tutorial on how to break down a coloring book picture to make a cane.

Here's what I got. At first I was not impressed...and was rather irritated that I had 'wasted' all this clay. But, then I realized something~ it's all in how you look at it. Have you ever seen this picture?? Depending on how you look at it, you either see an old lady or a young lady. It reminded me of how my cane is....When I first looked at the cane, I saw the nose as being only the line that goes down the middle of his face, and thought the wide-u shaped line under that was his mouth....BUT, then I looked at the original picture and seen the what I thought was the mouth is actually part of his nose. And the 2 lines at the bottom of his face is his mouth.....have I lost you yet? LOL!! I like him much better when I look at him this way!!!
And yes......I made bowls! Lots of bowls....It's amazing what you can do when you actually turn off the computer!! Hehe! Way too much eye-candy for one person!!
This last picture is of the baked bowls. As you can see they came out a little dark. But, honestly, it just enhances the color in Frankenstein!
