More Snowmen! And Handmade Gift Tags


Well, the last time I did many snowman we had a big snow storm. I think we are getting only slight amount of snow New Years eve. I don’t think I will jinx us here in NJ with my snowmen this time! 🙂

I realize Christmas is over .. um…. well…..officially we are still in the 12 days of Christmas 🙂 … anyway …. I just can’t seem to help myself. I have these two snowmen available in my Etsy Shop. I think there may only be one or two more to follow before I move back to fairies and fantasy sculptures.

This one is about 5″ tall and is secured to a red wood base. He is so distinguished looking and I really like his expression.

His scarf is accented with beautiful fibers and so is his top hat.

Lots of yummy German glass glitters on him and his base.

My next one I had in mind was a sitting snowman. Frumpy, plumpy, round and happy! I started with foil armature with this guy and then added the clay.

He is holding a Christmas tree and a candy cane. He has lots of yummy glitter on him as well!

His hat his hand dyed cotton with white trim. He’s a happy little fella and waiting for a new home!

So what do I do while my air dry clay sculptures are in the drying phase? I found the art of handmade gift tags. I know .. I know … *SIGH* … I can’t possibly handle more art work than I already have. However sometimes in between sculptures I need to do something besides eat! LOL. So i have been trying out a few of these. I will put them in my Etsy Shop as well this week. Just fun and more little goodies!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Folk Art Snowmen

Here in NJ we really have had no snow yet this December. One tiny little storm was about all we got. In hopes of getting some snow here, I have been creating snowmen.

These two snowman were made using paper clay, the kind that air dries (no baking needed). The female stands 8.5″ and the male stands 9.5″.

They are hand sculpted and painted by hand. I really enjoy painting on paper clay. So much technique that can be used for finishing them too — which is always so much fun. Distressing, shabby, antiquing. Then all the good stuff like fibers and glitter.

These guys sure gave me a chance to dig into all my art supplies to find just the right accents for them.

Little bit of sterling silver is added to their hats. I sculpted the hats of clay as well and then accented with fibers.

They will be added to my Etsy shop so check back soon and I will post the Etsy Link here. I may try to take a few more photos for Etsy.
