Back again

I noticed there aren't many vent figure making blogs that have continuance. I myself am guilty of not blogging. It's been quite a while so i decided to start again. Ventriloquism made a big comeback about 10 years ago and there are a lot more people involved now than ever before. There are new Vents popping up on you tube, facebook and other social media  as well as television.
  Darcy Lynne has become the most famous as of lately. One thing she has that all budding ventriloquists need is confidence. Confidence is 50 percent of the game. With a positive attitude and confidence (and a good routine) you will be asked back over and over again. You'll find as you get better and have more gigs, the gift to make people laugh becomes more important than any monetary returns and it's a great high as well.
  We too often look at how much can we make and not enough in making people happy. Being a ventriloquist opens your eyes and heart to those you entertain.
   I have been working on a lot of  figures. Both conversion and professional over this past year and i haven't gotten around to sharing any of them, so I will post some pictures here. I thank you all for reading my blog and promise to add to it more often

Steven Tyler is finished

Well, this dude looks like a lady. I finished him today. Hard to believe he started out as a head blank from Braylu. I'll definitely be getting more of those Buzz!

Steven Tyler dummy

Here are some pictures of Steven Tyler as he is coming along. I cut and made his jaw and added his eyes. He has a first coat of paint and I will be making his body next.

Braylu head

I Decided to use a Braylu head for this project. Buzz sells them as head blanks. It's a clean canvas you can do anything on. Here are some pictures of a Steven Tyler look alike i am working on.

Been a long time!

Its been a long time since my last blog. I have been very busy and just kept putting it off until i realized half the year was gone!  I am still working on my museum and of course making figures. I started one recently for a customer. She wanted a pixie and gave me a picture to go by. Here are my results so far. I started with the sculpture on the botton and after sanding and painting and sealing, I added her eyes and eyebrows. I will post the results when I am finished.

  I was asked where I get my eyes. I have several places to go, Braylu makes very nice eyes and their iris can be painted from behind to enhance the color any hue you like. Puppets and props sells very nice eyes as well and has different categories. I also buy from doll suppliers throughout the internet. I do however make my own most of the time from wooden balls I buy at Joanns Fabrics or Michaels craft supplies. I all depends on the look I want to get.
