Sewing, Painting and Casting!

In these next few days I'll try to post some other work along with the characters. Currently obsessing though! We are making awesome progress. The guys worked hard this weekend to assemble a couple more characters and I worked on clothing today. The hand dilemma has been solved and Jay is casting hands for each of the characters. Tomorrow I am hoping we can assemble all 4 characters going to the conference, finish painting and complete the basic outfits. Then we will focus on our booth, obviously more pictures to come!

Rachel's outfit. Her cowboy boots will be painted red and her waistline will be smoothed out a bit. 

 These are the molds for each of the hands. One for the guys and a smaller set for the girls. As the silicone sets we are able to shape the hands as needed before they set completely.

 Violet's head is painted and waiting for some killer glasses. Her hands and any exposed skin have also been painted and finished with a glossy coat. 

Here's Robby! Sculpted, baked and ready to be put together. Check out his hair! Both on his head, and the sexy curl on his chest. I think he might end up being my favorite!

Here are a couple teaser ideas for postcards we will be handing out at the Return on Design Conference. The original idea was to emboss "Artists That Design" to be a positive image on her face. Then on the back we were playing with the idea of printing right over the negative image for a visual illusion. The embossing may not work out before Thursday but we will see!
