My studio looks a bit like a set from Sweeney Todd, little marionette limbs fresh from the oven. Sculpey has an unpleasant odor when baking and an even more unpleasant “flesh” tone…it isn’t pretty. I’m eager to put paint to mannequin.
In addition to marionettes I have an actual (gasp)paying job, a series of four decorative panels to be reconfigured into custom wall coverings. The designs are dense to allow the designer enough material to “cut and paste” to suit the space. I am working with a chinois/japonoise theme, proposal renderings follow:
Well that’s it so far, awaiting designer ( and client) feedback but for now back to puppetry.
