Sewing with dark gold sparkle vinyl, using a machine and hand stitching.
There will be hair and a nose bone.

This is a sample piece that is coming out ok. It might be too small for a final piece,
but not sure yet. Figuring a few things out before I cut bigger pieces.

Shrunken head elvis Just a quick sketch to see how it looks, but I'll think I'll go for a more shrunken look.

amybean, glitter vinyl is deffinately a cool way to go, can't wait to see more progress.

TikiG, very cool cage, looking foward to what you have in store.

hewey, The King is always big, even when he's small great idea.

Here's a bit more progress on mine. I think I've got a little bit more to do with touch ups in the fox paws wood and I have to crawl in a basement and dig out my hemp twine to stich him up, so it WILL be done in time

Here's a crappy sketch study in vinyl - way too small to be a final, though I learned a lot along the way!
Probably do a head full size or 3/4 scale.

Cutting new pieces tomorrow... stay tuned!

Hello TC art swap-peers,

For starters - I'm diggin' on all the creative work shown here so far. I've participated in two prior swaps; I feel that the subject focus has progressed in a challenging way and THIS swap has enticed me to jump off of my comfort zone (painting) and land on a 3-Dimensional vista

For the record I made enormous progress over the weekend. In between moments of working on a bedroom PolyPop makeover...reed applied to walls and general decorating - I worked on my shrunken-head project. Below are four more teaser pics w/ descriptions. Enjoy.


Filmo clay model right out of the oven (a paper-mache core.)


1st Pass acrylic paint phase. Blue, green, brown and grey.


Roping the eyes and the mouth. Satin spray applied to head to dull color.


The beginning of the hair application process. Bought human hair and white glue.

My next photos shall be of the finished project. Stay-tuned!
