"Second Mononoke Spear" : 8/1/14
This one’s much more lighter and hollow than the first. I made sure to take my time to round out the edges. I’m still working on the bottom part where the pole’s supposed to slip through.
I started this one back in May and waited for the clay to dry all this time. I promised my friend I’d make the spear head for her Mononoke cosplay using the leftover clay from my Ceramics class. I decided not to fire it in the kiln at school because I didn’t hollow it out like I originally planned. I messed up on the carving and shape a bit. It also started to break from the being placed on the pole I have. But as first tries go, I think it could have been worse. I’m proud of it. :)
My 3 year old niece just popped around whilst I had the avengers on , so I was trying to explain it to her , and I was saying to her that Loki was the bad guy , she took one look at him and said that he wasn’t the bad guy as he’s ‘too pretty’
