I LOVE SWAPS! When I saw that Zan http://wildatheartart.blogspot.com/ was having a Monster Swap, I knew I had to join. What better way to face your childhood fear then to create the little bugger that spooked you soooo bad as a child. Yep, this is the furry feller that caused me so much grief. " The MOnsteR Under My Bed "
I started this creation with a couple of small gourds and wire for the armature of the monsters body. I used Apoxie Sculpt and paper clay to sculpt him. His rough furry texture was created using finely cut up cheese cloth and Paverpol.
The bed is made from heavy duty cardboard stuff ? dowels and paper clay.
And that skeered little boy in the bed, with his covers pulled up so tightly around him, was created from a tiny bottle gourd and paper clay. I will have to say that this was a very fun swap. Now this little Monster will be carefully packaged and mailed out to my new friend and swap partner. Maybe she can tame him , hehehe ! :)
