Made some mini-antlers to wear with my Halloween costume.
This was my first time using an aluminum foil core, and it worked out pretty well. It’s definitely easier to sculpt with a core already in the general shape I want, and since it provides much of the structure, I can focus more on texturing. As a side benefit, it also allows me to make my clay go further, since I use less of it.
Really happy with how these turned out. I was a little intimidated my the texture, but after looking a some photos of deer antlers, the texture just sort of appeared. Love how the paint job really brigs out the grooves.
Working on the headpiece for my Halloween costume. Made the base with some grapevines I found in the yard, adding some silk flowers and leaves, along with miscellaneous acorns, snail shells, pine cones, and whatever other details I find.
I wanted to make this headpiece larger, but then I remembered that my head is actually quite small.
Oh god guys. JK Rowling is a genius, and so is this person.
the thing I love about this fandom is that there are 7 books and 8 movies to observe. so every once in a while some blessed soul finds a piece of information that makes all the magic resurface again
Oh Lord…it’s a metaphor too. It’s symbolic of Neville holding on to his past, the horrors of what happened to his parents, of being a passive vessel for that atrocity. As if the terrible thing kept happening and would never stop happening.
When he moves forward and becomes part of his own story instead of the story of his past, his strength surges.

It also shows that if you give a kid the wrong tool, he may be a genius but he’s never going to be able to build something with it.
