1. They seed the edges of the roads as they walk and within weeks the path is overcome with fast growing vines.

2. Appointments are scarce this time of year and she finds herself stuck wedging it in between hot yoga and a tarot reading.

3. “There is no opting out. If you refuse to do this voluntarily, we’ll do it ourselves and bring you along. There’s nothing in the prophecy that says you have to survive the final battle, only that you have to be there.”

4. Flames lick up the walls and dance across the ceiling, burning away the dust and filth and leaving the surfaces beneath untouched.

5. I wanted to be a bricklayer when I was young. Watching them work, building house after house in my neighborhood, creating homes from mud… seemed almost magical.

Fat Pony #001-003

Fat Ponies #001-003

It’s one of those universal truths… if you give me some sculpey, I’m going to sculpt horses! Well Fat Ponies, to be precise.;)

The completely unsurprising addition to the Fat Animal Magnet parade turned out to be one of the harder ones to cast. As you can see by the raw resin casts the mold picked up a few weird artifacts and I had some issues with bubbled in the hooves. I’m already working on a second version (this time testing out a non-silicone mold) that will hopefully sort things out.

Because if there’s one magnet you know I’m going to be painting herds of… this is it! 😀 Continue reading

Chasing New Year’s Resolutions

By | February 15, 2017

To-do List

I was planning on making a list of resolutions for this year, but I kept getting distracted by life and now it’s halfway through February and I still don’t have one.

Part of me wants to throw in the towel and not set any resolutions this year. Historically I have a poor track record of actually accomplishing said resolutions, or even remembering I have resolutions… so not setting any is an automatic win, right?

I’m thinking it’s more of an automatic loss.

But I really don’t know what I want to accomplish this year yet, other than to get healthy and that’s what Nerd Fitness is for. The four week challenges are a great way to pick small wins and I really like playing along in the Assassin Mini Quests.

I could just commit to doing all of the challenges and then pick additional non-fitness goals each time… so I don’t have any specific resolutions other than ‘Do Four Week Challenges’. *ponders*

I think this is going to require more thinking…

Fat Dragons #001-003

Oddly enough, I didn’t think of sculpting fat dragons when I was thinking up animals for the Fat Animal Magnet menagerie. It took a coworker asking to add them to the list… but one he did, they fit right in!

It was hard to pick what sort of dragon to sculpt, but I ended up going with my default horse-cat-dragon shape. These little guys has some casting issues, as you can see by the wings and the faces, so I’ll be making a new mold (as well as tweaking the sculpt a little) before I make any more.

All three of these little guys were snapped up by my cousins, so the first generation of dragons are now offically out of production! 🙂
