    Hi Carol – so sorry that I did not respond till now – sometimes I don’t check this site. But many, many thanks for the marvelous compliments you sent my way. They are very much appreciated. Yours, Joanne

    P.S. – how is Texas to live? Unemployment high down there as in a lot of the states? What do the temperatures rise to down there on the average? Always wanted to relocate from New York to a more inexpensive town – perhaps Texas?

    Stunning, Joanne! However, I think you’re a bit lucky and have a particular advantage, in addition to incredible talent: to have such a gorgeous mug ;-) would make the work of replicating it in sculpture a joy!
    BTW, did you by chance use a photo of yourself (and that one shown above, in particular) as a model from which to work?

    Just lovely. lovely, as well as your other pieces!

    Cheers from a too hot and dry Texas.

    Hi Jonni – Hope all is well with you. If you still have those instructions I sent to you on making mask armatures for constructing masks you can post them in your Halloween party section. If you have the time let me know if you still have them.

    Jonni,
    I’ve seen those google boxes around. I had no idea what to do with them. (I still don’t really know what they’re about.) I’m always afraid of MORE junk in my mail box!

    These are wonderful Joanne. I have to tell you that a smile spread across my face as I was looking at your self portrait. Your smile if very contagious. :) Thank you so much for posting your work.

    Celluclay has come a long way since I tried it , hum, it must have been a good 9-10 years ago. I’m looking at BALTO, a wolf/dog my little granddaughter and I put together then. Still have it, still love it…especially the memories. But we didn’t sand it much – the finish is rough. As a matter of fact, we didn’t even seal it and it still looks like it did those years ago. I did not know celluclay could be sanded so smoothly. Lovely work!

      Dear Sharon – thank you for the lovely comments on my work and photo – they are much appreciated. Good luck! Yours, Joanne

      Oh, and by the way Celluclay is a wonderful product to work with if you want to try it again. It sands very smooth and handles easily.

    Wow Joanne, that is a fantastic self-portrait sculpture! I imagine that’s even harder than drawing or painting a portrait. I love the snow leopard too.
