Carving through layered polymer reveals the underlying colors. Some trenches were left plain, others filled with polymer and yet others with liquid polymer and resin for a bit of shine. Three holes were drilled and tiny coordinating polymer balls were embedded. Metallic paint and mica powder add BLING!
This is one of my favorite Christmas tree ornaments that I've made this year. Each one is hand sculpted starting with the face. Then tiny black beads are added for the eyes. Next comes the beard, then the mustache and eyebrows. Then the final touch – as on any traditional Santa – his red hat! Texture sheets or stamps are used to give his hat more interest. The detail in his beard and mustache are deeply incised then an antiquing glaze is used to bring out all the details.
I am entering Charlotte into the December Challenge "carving". This is the only piece I have ever made that has some carving in it! Enjoy!
