You Can Make Mr. Perfect if You Can't Find Him


Hello everyone,

Hope your day is going well. So early Sunday Morning I'm watching youtube videos on polymer clay sculpting when a particular video caught my attention. Watching the lady sculpt a doll seemed so simple. Later I decided to give it a try. Everything was going well until

1. I ran out of clay
2. The dreadful application of too much brown pastel to his face resulting in a complexion of one who'd been in a fire :(

But I still love him so. I am actually pleased with the results for first try. Next time I will be more careful when applying pastels to color his complexion and I will take my time sculpting his hands and feet so that I get the symmetry right. There are some sculpting tools I need to acquire....

Dressing him was a bit of a challenge. I do not know how to sew at all. His pants are made from Prada sunglasses cleaning cloth.

His name is Matt tentatively (I can't decide) and he is what you would call a true gentlemen. He is very sophisticated, well traveled and worldly yet down to earth. He loves music, plays the piano, loves art-we like the same artists: Matisse and Gustav Klimt, poetry and reading, fine dining and lots of red wine. I don't even mind that he smokes. Yup we are totally running away together.

Norma,

Your comment made me laugh, I am still laughing! There is this tool that is vital for making the eyes that I need to acquire. I cannot begin to tell you the struggle with getting his eyes to be normal, hence I made a drug lord lol.

I think that you should runaway with him

He's dilated and I'm dyslexic early in the morning - I really should read comments before I hit the post button ;) Heck, maybe your guy and I are made for each other!!

I really think Matt has loads of character! I can totally see him in animation movie like Wallace & Grommit so maybe you have created a star. He can look a little "crazy" but that will only add to his charm. :):)

Poor Mr. Right--there he sits unable to give you a hug for creating him! I have tried some sculpting but they haven't turned out well enough to show!

@Sans-I really love your insight here. I do see a bit of Wallace and Grommit in 'Matt' who by the way is really named Curtis :) Thanks Sans for visiting me!

I think he has sort of a refined bad boy look to him. Like my English professor in college. I have tried my hands and patience with polymer clay doll making too. It's a fine specimen!
