Halloween Countdown: Krisztianna

Posted in craft, day of the dead, halloween, sculpture, skulls and skeletons with tags , , , , on October 10, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Krisztianna has a series of Day of the Dead inspired sculptures she calls “Muertitas.” There is one representing each season (and a few others).

They are all gorgeously blossoming with life, drawing elements from their respective times of the year. The color coordination is lovely.

She crafts these beauties with styrofoam, paper maché, wire, clay, wood, acrylic, synthetic flowers, twine, pins, glue, sealant, screws, “and lots of love.”

Halloween Countdown: Parasite Specimen

Posted in craft, creatures, halloween, monsters with tags , , , on October 3, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

This homemade parasite specimen is one of the finest examples of DIY prop crafting I’ve ever seen.

The creator gives a small comment:
This was sculpted out of polymer clay and painted with acrylics. The detail work was done with dental tools and some custom texture stamps. I added the gore just to dress up the photos a bit. It’s essentially lumpy gravy- cornstarch and water mixed with some food coloring and heated up until it gels.

I don’t know about you, but I think the goopy red stuff is a very nice touch. A shiny, slimy luster makes any parasite look its best.

She talks a bit about her perspective on quilling here.

Yulia does indeed elevate this medium to create compelling portraits. I would love to see these in person to experience the 3D effects up close.

Nathalie Lete: Meat Rug

Posted in craft, dolls, home, meat with tags , , , on September 19, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Here we have an eye catching rug by Nathalie Lete for the discriminating carnivore (the roses are a nice touch, no?):

She has more unique rugs in her multimedia portfolio, such as this doll head (which I think I’d feel a bit guilty walking on).

All types of art can be found on her site.

Svetlana Karelina made an anatomical plasticine piece that most certainly deserves a spot on this blog.

She also appears to be working on a “7 Deadly Sins” series using animals, which is unique and wonderful so far.
