"U Rock" WC(SE)#0026 ... valentine turtle ... last of 2010
This sculpt will be the last "Valentine Special Edition" from ZAOS this year, only three were made (my creepy valentine, my valentine matilda, and u rock). This sculpt is called "U Rock" and features a "emo" boney turtle and a few unique rocks atop a wooden base . "U Rock" is approx. 2" tall x 3.5" long. The boney turtle and the rocks are hand sculpted by J. Razoux from Super Sculpey Firm then hand painted with an acrylic palette of greens, browns, black, and ivory. Absolutely no molds were used in this sculpture's creation. The wooden base is a set of small 100 year old barn planks and is hand painted (acrylics) dark brown with splatches of mossy green, black, and light brown. The bottom of the base is marked with the "ZAOS". The turtle's shell displays a patched up heart. The bunch of rocks is unique in that one of the rocks is shaped like a heart. The single rock in front is unique because the rock has "U ROCK" etched in it, this further adds to the valentine feel of the piece and basically gives the art it's name as well.
I am a rather whimsical woman generally, although if you ask my family it's more that my head's stuck in the clouds than "whimsical" as I call my personality. Anywho, my whimsical nature has given me the ability to envision a fantastical world beyond the world we live in, not literally of course. I use my creative nature to create my fantasy sculptures. This same talent allows me to create realistic ooak and reborn babies!
I am rather new (September 2009) to sculpting, so please be patient as I learn new techniques and my abilities grow.
