Continuing the theme: Naked people

Sunday, I was determined to get the chores done. Package up my income tax information, wash my hair, vacuum, and so on.

And by four or five in the afternoon, I'd cleaned up the polymer clay mess I'd made. The "should" chores were still waiting.

I was pleased with this particular figure...I like that it started out as a female figure and ended up somewhat androgynous. I find that anything I make tends, to some extent, to become what it wants to become, rather than following my plan.

The gilded color came from coating the polymer clay in metallic powder before the piece was cured. Can you make out the spiral patterns on the body?

So. Step one. Now I just have to figure out the rest of the piece and do the work.
