Adding the Narrative with Creative Paperclay®

 As a narrative mixed media artist, I love the story telling elements that I can create with Creative Paperclay®. Most of my work starts out as abstract paintings until I start adding the narrative to it. This piece, Man on the Edge of a Big Decision, is one example. It takes so little to add a lot of impact.


Silicone mold
Creative Paperclay®
I made my little man using a push mold made from a figurine and Creative Paperclay®. I prefer to clean up my edges when dry by using a dremel. However, you can trim the edges before it dries with an exacto knife.

Have fun with art & dream in color.
