Air Dry Clay Class with Marlaine Verhelst

Hi there... Wow, what fun I'm having!
I decided to try something new, so I'm taking an online class with Marlaine Verhelst.
Of all the online classes I've taken, none compare to this one. This is my first attempt at air dry clay sculpting...  If you ever have a chance to take a class given by Marlaine go for it, she is the BEST... she answers all your questions and has a great eye for detail and you really learn a lot. I can't say enough about her! The face is painted using water color paints.

The hands were a nightmare, LOL!! I spent days on them, they were more work than the face. They almost went flying out the window, lol!!  Because the fingers almost drove me crazy I decided to make the feet with shoes instead... they took hours to get to this point also... still working on both the hands and feet. As frustrating as the hands have been, its been just as exciting. Best ever class!

I'm starting on the body now and can't wait to get to the costume... will keep posting pictures as I go.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!
