Jumping into Paper Clay

After making the fun little head from my last post I got excited and realizing that Mother's Day here in the US is May 8th and the fact that I'm flat broke right now I decided to make my mom a paper clay sculpture. I might have bitten off more than I could chew. I tend to turn the simplest thing into a huge deal. UGH! I also have way too big plans for that little head! I'm trying to rein myself in a bit but well we'll see.
Here's the start of the new piece. It's larger than I probably should be doing, but I'm working with what I have in stock. Not sure my idea will work. It's telling me it want to be something other than what's in my mind. See I'm just giving myself stress...sigh. 

I haven't given up on my plush or soft sculptures just moving slower on them, it's been a rough month. The female Rabbit has new legs and can stand now. Working on her bonnet then need to add arms then she's done.

I hope you'll come back and see what other crazy thing I'm doing.

You know, of course, that your mom will love anything you make her. :)) I'm glad you're playing with clay - it's very addicting, isn't it? I finally did some sewing yesterday after weeks of claying (new word!). xo Pam

looking forward to seeing the result - and just to make you jealous, new series of DrWho started yesterday in UK! Actually, I wonder if it's out in US too as it's a collaboration with BBC US???
