I like to pinch n' paint clay :)
Hi guys! Figured it has been a while since my last update and I just wanted to introduce/re-introduce a little about myself and my work :)

A background
I started sculpting back in 2012. I picked it up while in a lull of boredom by accident when a good friend suggested I pick up some polymer clay at the local craft store. I have been addicted to the craft ever since! I am completely self-taught and enjoy sculpting pieces of original, fan-inspired, and custom designs.

Sculpt, bake, then some color. 
I use oven-bake polymer clay for all my sculpts. Each piece is individually sculpted, baked in a clay-dedicated oven, detailed with acrylics, and then topped off with a layer of gloss varnish for protection and a finishing shine. I usually use white or translucent clay since I enjoy painting on the details but I also dabble in the use of colored clay on occasion. 

Tools of the trade.
For sculpting: My two hands as most fellow crafters would say! I also use a variety of wooden shaping tools and my Xacto knife to help with smoothing and sharp or angular details. Wire armature is occasionally used in my larger pieces. For painting: I use a variety of artist-grade acrylics, chalk pastels for pieces with a more blended appearance, and a ton of teeny tiny brushes! 

A theme of sorts. 
Many of my favorite cartoon shows, video games, and movies of the past and present are the foundations of my work. As a self-proclaimed video game junkie and child at heart, I thoroughly enjoy making familiar characters with a little twist of emotion, pose, and personality. I've also started creating my own original sculpts as well over the past few years. I mostly enjoy making stand-alone miniatures, totems, sculptures, and even wedding toppers. On rare occasion, I also dabble in making small charms and jewelry. 

I like to call my creations clay babies, or claybies for short!

Lonely Southpaw? 
Just a nickname I created a while back. I am indeed left-handed :)
