What is this thing? I don’t know. Kind of a goblin, sort of a monster. I call it an “Oddball.” Mainly because its head is shaped like a ball and I literally rolled the clay into a ball to make the head. This guy is assembled from some household recyclables, a small Styrofoam ball, polymer clay, wire, toothpicks, and candy stirring sticks.
The body is made from a wine bottle cork glued to the lid of creamer bottle and covered with a layer of paper clay. Candy stirring sticks are hot glued to the inside of the creamer lid and reinforced with clay. The head and feet are made from polymer clay. Arms are made from wire inserted through the shoulders and covered with paper clay. His scarf is a piece of felt sewn with glass beads.
Here are some more photos of this oddball:
