Collaboration: Needle Felt & Paper Clay Snowman

Hey, here’s something different. My friend Michelle (Run Red Run) was at my studio this past holiday season and we thought it might be fun to collaborate on a little project — just to see how it’d turn out. So I designed this good-natured snowman.Michelle’s been needle-felting wool for a number of years, so she sculpted the body of the snowman, while I tried my hand at sculpting and painting the paper clay accessories.This was only my second paper clay project, but I had a blast trying to figure it all out and I hope to do more.The whole thing — our first practical collaboration — was lots of fun and we recorded the whole process too. Sometimes it’s just nice to try different mediums or a different workflow to help spark more creative ideas. Here’s the 8 minute video from YouTube:

You can see other process videos I’ve started uploading to The Long Lost Friend Studio YouTube Channel. And if you want to follow Michelle or me on any of our various social media feeds, here’s all the info you need. Thanks for stopping by.
