Unlike most of my work, this creature was born with no planning, no sketches and no intention. While conditioning a rather large lump of polymer clay, my hands took over and before I knew it, out she popped. I had shaped the clay into a basic female form. Why the dog head? She is a dog sprite inspired by the mascot and beloved dog of the studio, Ruby Tuesday, hence the name.
Once completed and baked, I embarked on painting her. I did not want to paint her 'realistically', rather, I wanted to use her as a canvas. My paint of choice was Golden, painted over their absorbant ground which causes acrylic paint to act as watercolour.
I'm not entirely ready to part with her but will certainly let you know when i am :)
