Yeti for SpookyPooky

This was a small hanging doll I did for a swap with the very awesome and talented Alexz aka SpookyPooky.  Seriously, go check her out. Her work is so adorable and she is constantly putting up new designs. She is obsessed with yetis and so I came up with this little guy. I bought a new book on fantasy polyclay sculpting and it has completely revamped my techniques.

Fairies Gnomes & Trolls: Create A Fantasy World in Polymer Clay by Maureen Carlson

I highly recommend it to everyone wanting to tackle the task of facial sculpting and expressions. It has done wonders for me! Every page was in full gorgeous color and the pictures are so vivid, making the instructions easy to follow.  

I was so proud of this yeti when he was completed. But I wasn't sad to send him away. He seemed to just be begging to be sent home to his yeti loving new friend. :)

Let me know what you think of him!


  1. Hey girlie,
    I am so glad you'll be giving the faux leather a try. It is sooo much fun and ends up looking so darn good! Just remember to be careful with getting the tissue paper overly wet... and pounce it rather than "paint" it. Hmmm maybe I'm needing to do some faux leather myself come to think of it, the results are wOnDeRfuL! lol
    I'd like to see yours when you've got it finished. Let me know when you've blogged about it okie-dokie-artichokie?

  2. I commented earlier, but I don't know if it went through. Just wanted to say thank you sooooooooooooooooooo much for this wonderful yeti. It is such a wonderful and unique addition to my collection and it is truly fabulous! You are so freakin' talented!
