That looks so real MadDogMike. The record belongs in my album cover. Thank you for the use of your album. Maybe more artists will use it too. Here's what I've done
for the MadDogMike Christmas Album inspired Swap art.

A while back I had poured a big mug and then never got back to make it into something. Now MadDogMike posts this album cover and I knew that the mug shape was perfect for this project.

This is the album.


This is the completely dried out mug.


To make it easier to carve and to prevent a lot of dust I stuck it in a bucket of water.


I carved the information on the bottom and then cut out the woman from a printed photo of the cover.


I held her in place while I used a wooden pick to carve the outline.


Even a tiny point can remove a good amount of clay.


Now I used a razor blade to cut out the paper on the inside of the arms.


I didn't do a great job because one bracelet was so white and that part got cut out too.


I was careful and drew the correct outline while holding the photo in place again. So now I have the outline for the first part done.



Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, looks good. So you're going to carve it all from mostly dried clay without adding any clay to it? Hmmm, this is going to be interesting.

Jon, very cool. Getting close to done?

Anthony, dig it.

Hang10, looking sweeeeet. Looks like a (wooden) carbon copy of the album- impressive!

Wendy, look forward to seeing yours progress- like Mike, I'm curious to see what happens. How dry is the clay?

While I've been trying to figure out how to work some art w/ this album (though I've never heard it, have to find it ASAP):


II'm going to try to work on a method to use for this classic cover (which no one has jumped on as of yet????):



Note: this may change....

anthonymaye love those wild and crazy colors.

hang10tiki that is a perfect copy, how did you get it from the album onto wood?

Here's the next step on mine. I used a wooden stick with a point and pressed hard enough on the photo to make the picture show up on the clay. You can also see where I've started carving the rest of the body.




Have a great weekend, Wendy
