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