Boo Cactoo and Friends
Hey hey hey! So it seems I am keeping busy after all. I felt left out! HAHA! So I decided to participate in Clutter Gallerys exhibition called "They Came from the Planet Rainbow Sparkles". I was given the colour Green, which is a bit of a new one for me. I do like to work with mint greens allot, but I also like to g out of my way to try new things. And so I came up with Boo Cactoo. She was loads of fun to create and instead of painting everything I decided to go with a fimo for the spikes and the flowers. I have a fimo that tends to stay soft, but not break, which is perfect for these kind of projects. Normally I would be worried about the thorns and flowers breaking, but not with this as they're more plasticy.
Now she is obviously super cute! And feels so nice in your hand. And guess what, after the weekend, she is still available over at Clutter Gallery! So hit the link if you want to give Boo a new home! And make sure you check out the other amazing creations in the show. Beautiful as always!
The Cactoo Bun Buns
As I was working on Boo, I found three little un-painted Bun Buns hidden away in my cupboard of un-finished projects and since I enjoyed creating Boo so much I thought I'd give her three friends to hang out with. So I made these Cactoo Buns!
They have not been released yet, but I plan to release them this Friday, 18th of August at 21.00 BST in my Bigcartel Store. They will be £45.00 + Shipping, and there is only 3! They took me quite some time to make as I've been sitting there with my small small dremel and I've engraved the lines and little holes that would give them a cactus appearance. So each one is unique in a way. They're all ready to ship and will go out on the Monday following this weekend.
Now don't forget the date! Aaaaaand I've got more coming in a couple of weeks as well, so stay tuned with my growing Island on Instagram as that's where it all goes down!
