Long time no post!

It seems like a long time since either Diane or I have blogged for gofigurette! . Diane has been super busy with continuous wedding orders and I've been dabbling here and there on different projects. I've been making a lot of figurines compared to flowers and just wanted to share some of the things I've been doing.

Funny how when friends hear that I work with clay, they think up ways that I can help them with their kid's school projects, lol. The first project that I was asked to help with had to do with a book report on Terracotta Soldiers. This was way off the norm for me since it wasn't a cute figurine, but I thought I could give it a try. I had 2 days to figure this one out!
The next project that I was asked to help with was a set of 4 fairies, which each had to be different and in accordance to the book that my coworker's daughter was reading. I had fun making the fairies since this was more my style as far as making cute figurines.

We had quite a few custom orders on gofigurette!, one of which included a request for a feather headpiece with a birdcage veil for a bride owl caketopper that I had made. Another bride requested a set of large penguin cake toppers with the groom in a top hat. The bride also wanted her penguin couple to be holding hands, which I thought made the topper look really sweet. We also got 2 birthday requests. One was for a 1 year old's birthday whose mom was having an owl themed party for him.
For another birthday request from a special client, she asked if we could do a sock monkey for her husband's birthday which I've never done before, but thought I would give it a try.I was glad to know that our client's husband was quite happy with how it turned out!

Moving on to the holidays, Diane asked me to try putting figurines in glass orbs. Well, my first response was "Do what?", but she said to go forward and give it a try. So glad my instructor/good friend has so much faith in me!

This one is my favorite. I call her "Snow catcher" since she's trying to catch snowflakes on her tongue after making her angel print in the snow.
Guess that's it for show and tell right now, lol. We hope to post more in the future and suggestions for new figurines are always welcome :)
