I've been wanting to make a polymer clay greenman for a long time. Finally decided to just do it. So here he is - the face is life-size.

Absolute Perfection Chris! It is masterfully (or should I say misstressly Smiling ) formed and you are an artist indeed. What else you got to show us! Keep creating. That is absolutely Fabulous. I'm very much looking forward to seeing more of your work. I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up Smiling

Thanks David. That's kind of a new direction for my polymer clay work. I needed something a bit more challenging to do. I have started another one already though.

Very nice Chris!

@DavidofDeland, have you seen Chris' beautiful wood intarsia pieces? Check out her Timber Treasures site on cubits (link below her posts) to see samples of her lovely craft.

Thank you Lin!! I haven't made any new intarsia pieces in way over a year now. Just seem to have less free time than I used to. Shrug!

Wow Chris. Multitalented indeed! Thanks for the heads down Lin! Hilarious!

All of your work is so well done Chris. I've never really looked at cubits before somehow. Has it worked out well for you?

David, cubits is a great place ... she's the sister site of All Things Plants! *Blush* Although I must admit, I haven't visited cubits.org in a long while because I seem to spend all my time here.

Thank you David! Yes, I actually have 3 Cubit stores and they all do well; they keep me as busy as I care to be since I also work full time.
