Paint brings out a personality

These guys were interesting when not painted, but I like the personalities that have come out after color.

In Drag?



"But he was such a quiet neighbor! " they all said when the details were made public "he wouldn't have hurt a fly"

Mardi Gras in Old Thebes


Next lesson we start to make bodies out of cloth. Should be interesting.

I'm so glad you like them. These little clay people are becoming like little pets!

Lynn said...

Mim they have such character. I can see a whole play evolving from these dolls. Amazing how alive they look in their now painted faces.

Hugs.

These are FANTASTIC Mim! I really like the personalities and expressions you've given these guys. The top one doesn't have to be a man. Kind of looks like a Joan Crawford person to me. Keep going! These are great.

Baino said...

Haha yeh far less spooky with their faces dolled up. Very quirky. You could make 'hobby heads' out of them instead of hobby horses hahahaha!

Chrisy said...
