I'll teach you to make your own Fetch! He's featured in my book “FaeMaker: Making Fantasy Characters in Polymer Clay”.
PLEASE NOTE — This is the same character as the Fetch in the book, taught in a greatly expanded class, with even more of my scintillating wit, ROFL...
You'll sculpt a head, hands, and feet with polymer clay, then assemble these pieces on a wire skeleton — Fetches are poseable!
After creating the body, you'll costume your character with leather, cheesecloth, or any other bits and bobs your Fetch may want to wear. No sewing skills required, and you'll have big fun!
Sign up on Doll Street 'til October 09. See ya there!

I'm taking orders for FaeMaker for those of you who'd like autographed copies...drop me a note with your email address and I'll add you to the list. I'm expecting two cartons next week; the carton I got yesterday has already sold out — thanx everybunny!
O, and check out my author page over on F&W Media... =-)

San Diego Comic Con is over for another year...it goes so fast, and is exhausting, yet BIG FUN! We (Greg the Hubs, the oddfae, and me) have signed up for next year already, and will be doing a few other cons in the meantime, so stay tuned.
In other news, "FaeMaker" is now shipping on Amazon.com, and is number 5 in bestselling books on sculpture! Thanx, everyone!! It's available on Kindle, too...

Here's a sneak peek at a project from my book, straight from the publisher!
As the article says, we'll be at San Diego Comic Con this week, and we'll have a limited number of advance copies of FaeMaker! It should start shipping from the publisher in a couple of weeks, so keep an eye out — it'll be here soon!

So last Saturday, I attended the first session of the sculpting class taught by the uber-talented Simon Lee. He sat and sculpted this "sketch", as he called it, during the lecture.

One’s studio is never complete without an assistant — and you can learn to make your own! I'll teach you to make your own Fetch oddfae, as featured in my new book, “FaeMaker: Making Fantasy Characters in Polymer Clay” (available for pre-order on Amazon — click over to faemaker.com and follow the link).

Well, as I'm working on the latest needlefelted softie, which I'm calling an Oddball...the FedEx guy brings me six boxes! The "kids" from the book (faemaker.com) are starting to arrive home! It's almost like XMas, unpacking everyone...altho' some of 'em are pretty cranky about being stuffed in a box just to have their picture taken.
O, and Oddball is in my Etsy shop... =-)

Hey y'all! Visited WonderCon this weekend and refueled the creativity cells! There's nothing like interacting with other artists in person to get ya revved up again.
SO, I'm working on commissions AND updating my website (www.oddfae.com) to reflect the soon-to-available "FaeMaker: Making Fantasy Characters with Polymer Clay". And trying to make new stuff for my Etsy shop. And maybe sleeping on occasion...X-D
In the meantime, if you haven't seen Fetch on my Facebook page, he's my assistant in the book, reminding me of little bits o'knowledge I may have forgot to mention — and there's instructions to make your own Fetch!

I was on my way to the mailbox, and Dair Dulle (Oak Leaf) strolled out of the landscaping to say "Merry Meet!" He graciously allowed me a few snapshots before he went on his way.
You can see more pix of the newest oddfae in my Etsy shop...

Folks just love these li'l guys, so I thought I'd better post their story... =-)
I recently visited a watch repair shop and came upon a Chrono Seidh (pronounced "seed"), one of the Tribe of Other Folk that used to live in the Forest, but have become fascinated with timepieces and mechanical things.
These tiny fae will dwell in any type of clockcase they can find, but are especially fond of pocketwatches. Chrono Seidh can be very helpful in watch repair, as they can repair the tiny works without need for tools!

I finally get to attend Monsterpalooza this year — and even better, I'm signed up for Airbrush Asylum, an incredible class put on by Black Heart Enterprises. I can finally paint those full sculpts that have been hanging around "nekkid"!

It's official — I've signed on to teach at Clay Carnival in Las Vegas this year. If you're not busy in October, c'mon and play!
My class will be some kind of an oddfae face that can be worn, either a pin or a pendant. Stay tuned.

There is suddenly a huge interest in Chronoseidh...I had to order more watch cases! If anyone has a good source, let me know — vintage cases are getting hard to find, and when one *does* find 'em, they ain't cheap!
I gotta come up with new ways to fold oddfae! ;-)

Happy Monday, y'all!! I am finally getting back in the swing of sculpting, after concentrating on FaeMaker for the past year. I'm also working on a couple of new classes, to be announced soon, so stay tuned.
Today, I've got some new fae in my Etsy shop...a Finding Fae, a Shellfae, and a Podgorney.
Now, YOU go make something! And if it's chocolate, be sure to give me a call!
