Head modelling

This is an experiment I never did before. I really would like to have a model to take one picture of all my earrings to show the relations of size. Not a perfect, flawless, but a funny one, with big ears,...a striking character ...
So I bought modelling clay and started to shape a head. (Clay would have been better than this "modelling clay" which is smelling awful and not very smooth)
Reminds me on the film "Nosferatu" ...............
Good decision not to become a cosmetic surgeon, I guess!
Btw...very delicate beer! Special upper austrian!

Please don´t think that this is already finished!! It´s only a tentative drawing to give a little idea........
..of course it has to be sanded and finished after drying complete, and maybe some hair would look nice........
.....to be continued.....

Bead shopping tour....

..not very successful! I was looking for some pink transparent seedbeads! sized 18/0 , not lined inside, no luster, ....I also would use pink opaque beads in that size...
So if someone is reading this and knows where to buy, I would be happy if you tell me.....

These faceted orange beads and the blue below was all I bought. Beautiful as well, but not what I was searching for.




This little Iglu might became my challenge entry for the theme "antarktida"
..if I find time to make a pendant out of it. Anyway, the beadwork is done...
