Early American Carriages

These are some color prints I have and wanted to share with you.I thought they might be useful in some steam punk works of art.They are from 1952.Sorry about the backround being messed up in some but that is the condition I found them in.Fell free to down load and save to your computer ( click on the image then when it opens up in a new window,right click on it and then click save).

Golden Dragon ATC [Chunky]

Finally done!
I hope Debbie Warrick like this one.I'm not to sure Barb liked the first one I had made for her.It was the one with the angels but I don't think I decorated it enough.The dragon is painted with gold paint but it is a thin layer and doesn't show up very well in the photos.He is holding a gold metal bead in his front claw.I have two pictures here of the front because I just couldn't get a clear picture.

The start of my second chunky ATC

Hum Red again? Well I don't know what is happening to me but usually I don't pick red as my primary color.I don't wear red because it is soooo bright.But I do like the color as with all colors,what artist doesn't?But red fit the theme of this chunky ATC.I have started this second chunky at least four times.Each time I didn't like the end result.It just wasn't chunky enough.I guess the chunkys can be flat all around but from the ones I have seen,they have bulky stuff added to them.So I finally decided to make this Dragon and wraped him alll the way around the block of wood(2x4)The first picture is a start,I added a silver bead for his eye.Now I have to add the feet and some other final touches,paint ect...I hope I make the deadline of Nov.1st..
I use Sculp Epoxy,it is a two part resin.One is the resin and the other is the hardner.And beleave me it is VERY hard when it dries.You can sand it if need to but I usually smooth it out with water.This stuff is really sticky not like sculpy clay.And you don't have to bake it.It usually hardens in a few minutes of a few hours.So I try to mix up only what I can use,about the size of a bolder marble.You can only buy it from online and a pint cost $25.00 and you need two,one of each.But it lasts a long time.

Ho Bo pumpkin magnet

I made this little magnet to be in the Plaid challenge.You are suposed to make a pumpkin using their products.And it has to be three dimentional.I made him out of sculp-epoxy last night and let him harden.Then I painted him with Plaid folk art orange and yellow paint.The picture below is the pumpkin not painted

Chunky ATC

This is my first chunky ATC and I hope it qualifies.The sides aren't decorated much but I made the foil embellishments for them.I just never have gotten the jest of decorating in layers and overlaying like the chunky's are supposed to be.

Here are two picture I took from around the area.The top shed picture is from up the road 3-2 miles.I liked it because of the old look it had.Then the other picture on the bottom is from just down the hill in the back woods behind my house.I found it while looking for morel mushrooms.I thought it looked like a indian that had sat down and just stayed right there forever.

Garden Fairy Doll update

A few months back I posted about this doll.At the time it was just a head made out of a jewelry gourd.But the body is made and so are the arms and hands (they are just not in the picture).The top photo is the one where the body is painted.
