Pictured first is my entry titled "Out of the Box." He's one of the first pieces I finished since my new love affair with polymer clay kicked in a few weeks ago. Head and gloved hands are sculpted of polymer clay, colored with acrylic paints and chalk pastels. His hair is cotton crochet thread. The box is built of stock lumber, textured with acrylic modeling paste, painted and glazed with acrylics. The lid of the box rests on his head as he emerges.
I have to add a great big "thank you" to my hunky hubby who is honing his carpentry skills building the boxes for my jacks! They are just what I need. I'm on a roll. Keep 'em coming!
