Box Troll

I loved the movie and thought I had to try my hand at a Box Troll.  Yes even his box is made of fabric. Actually paint canvas.  I started with the box and I got a little anal with it.  Oh' well this is how I learn.  

This little guy measures about 13"  Is all cloth with needle sculpted features, inset eyes.  I decided to give him only three fingers and three toes.  He came together quite nicely!  

Here are a couple of close ups of the box! 

I totally had fun with the box, just check out the bar code.  So yes I will have to make a few more.  You can't just have one Box Troll?!?

Upcycled an old canvas

Bought this huge old painting at a garage sale.  I wanted a canvas that I could repurpose.   Should have been an easy thing to do. Well, this canvas had a lot of texture on it, that I could not get off.  So I took out all one thousand staples and flipped it over and re stapled it and painted it with some left over house hold paint.  Painted it .........wasn't happy with it and just kept painting.  Waited a few days before touched it again and Voila. It is now the new addition in the guest bedroom.

I'm done clowning around

Well here they finally are!  I started the first one six months ago and finished the last one last week.  I'm totally thrilled when I look at the group all gathered together.  I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something different.  

These were not made in a production line, but rather one at a time.  Each is very unique and definitely has  it's own personality.  They're not just ordinary Clowns, but they are Troll Clowns.

#5 is finally done

All good things take time and this was the case with Troll #5.  But he/she is finally finished.  Not sure why it took so long?!?  I have one more to make.  It will be nice to have them all done.

#5 coming right along

Well I figured I had better just stay focused on the topic at hand.  So Friday I started the next Troll Clown.  Today I stayed on task all day and I'm pleased with what all I got accomplished. :)

Now I have to see if she/he tells me what it wants to wear.

Send in the Clowns

Finished the fourth of the Troll Clowns for ODACA.  I'm thrilled with how each one is turning out so different, but the same.  This took a little longer, but came together quite nicely in the end.

And it's not the end.  I still have two more to make.

Emerging with Color

Just as the title says......."Emerging with color"!    I seem to be dragging my feet on this one.  Not sure why?!?  Maybe the beautiful weather..........who knows?!?  I will try real hard to get Troll Clown #4 by the end of March.  Found this vintage doll dress that I'm using for his outfit.  I just absolutely love the colors and almost hated to cut it.  

Seeing the out come on the troll is making me happy.  So I guess all is well. :)
