Autumn Thing Class on Doll Street


Doll Street has opened the Miss Cheevas class for Halloween...click here to pop on over and join us for spooky fun!


28 September 2012

Class Starts Today!!



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!

There, and Back from SDCC


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...

Sculpting with Simon Lee

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.

My homework is to have a sketch done by next Saturday's session... 0_o

Everyone Needs a Fetch...

I can't believe how fast time is passing...it's been more than a week since I updated, and there's a lot going on...!

I am making pocketwatch oddfae as fast as I can...here's the latest! Contact me if you want to be added to the queue. Filling out forms for San Diego Comic Con, that'll be here before ya know it! 0_o Many out-of-state visitors, in the past, right now, and in future! Love seeing old friends. Working on the White Queen from Through the Looking Glass, to be a companion piece for the Red Queen I made some years ago.
...and I've started sculpting masks again — they always go over big at Comic Con! Stay tuned...

Home Again


So the kids are all home safely from the publisher's, and things are getting back to "normal"...I let 'em outta the boxes and they're into everything!

06 April 2012

The Kids are Alright!


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... =-)

Sneak Peek!!


A sneak peek at a character from FaeMaker...Chrainn the Elf.

Website and Commissions


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!

Stay tuned...

Dair Duille


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...

More Chronoseidh


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!

23 February 2012

Woohoo!


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"!

22 February 2012

Clay Carnival 2012

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.

09 February 2012

Chronoseidh!!



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! ;-)

Gearing Up...


We've got our room for Comic Con 2012! We're back at the haunted Horton Grand Hotel again... =-)

Go Make Something!


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!

More Needlefelting



I've been waiting on locks for my satyr, so I needled up this li'l guy. His name is Sketch. Someone on Facebook suggested he and his brothers hide at the bottom of her wool basket and run off with her felting needles...
