NES, Catbug, and Beeeeeez by monsterkookies
NES, Catbug, and Beeeeeez
Normally I would be sharing my polymer clay sculpting with you, but being as the motivation has eluded me lately, I will be posting photos of my baking adventures, as this is what I've been up to for the past while.

I've been doing a lot of sugar cookies hand decorated with royal icing, inspired by cookie makers like Flour Box Bakery and SweetAmbs, which do amazing hand decorated sugar cookies.

I did Catbug, the cute lil' bee that you see buzzing around quite often in Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors, Bee & Puppycat, etc... as well as some old school NES controllers.

Sweet Prints Inc made the awesome cookie cutters, by the way! They have some awesome geektacular 3D printed cutters to be bought on their website.

Scalemaille Gauntlet by monsterkookies
Scalemaille Gauntlet
I haven't been doing much sculpting lately, but I've been playing with my chainmaille. It's a sideline of Monster Kookies that I like to call Blackmaille.

This is a gauntlet style bracelet that I made for myself, and it has a loop at the point of the scales that wraps around the middle finger and the bracelet fastens at the wrist. I made it with brushed natural aluminum, black, and gold toned anodized aluminum scales with brass, bronze, and bright aluminum jump rings. :)

Scalemaille Necklace WIP by monsterkookies
Scalemaille Necklace WIP
I haven't been doing much sculpting lately, but I've been playing with my chainmaille. It's a sideline of Monster Kookies that I like to call Blackmaille.

This necklace is a work in progress. I've never really attempted full blown scalemaille because it can be really finicky. I've only done 1 strand scalemaille bracelets in the past, but I decided to give something more advanced a good shot.

This is about 13 rows of small scales - brushed aluminum and black scales. The majority is brushed aluminum scales, but there is a border of black scales that are bordering the outside. It's pretty glamourous looking, isn't it? Something that should probably be worn with a black dress and lots of cleavage, I think. XD

Indigo by monsterkookies
Indigo
I've been going through my photos, and realized there were several MechOwlies from over the years that I haven't shared with you, yet. I haven't made any new MechOwlies, lately, and am not taking orders for them anymore, unfortunately. I add things to my Etsy Shop as I get the time to sculpt, which can sometimes be very few and far between.

This is Indigo, my 45th MechOwlie. There is a very sharp contrast between the brass background and the indigo details, as well as the bright silver gear on their belly and on the little rivets. Indigo was made in January 2013.


Although this creature looks to be made from metal, it is not - it is completely hand-sculpted from polymer clay with the addition of a few metal findings. This piece has been glazed with a satin finish for a slight sheen and durability.

Birch Tree Stump Cake by monsterkookies
Birch Tree Stump Cake
Normally I would be sharing my polymer clay sculpting with you, but being as the motivation has eluded me lately, I will be posting photos of my baking adventures, as this is what I've been up to for the past while.

I normally do pretty simple and straight forward buttercream cakes with fondant decorations if needed, but I've never done a fondant covered cake. I make my own marshmallow fondant, but I find that people just peel the stuff off. I never understood the point in covering a cake with something people are just gonna toss, but I made an exception for this lil' wedding cake. It's my first fondant covered cake. The groom is an arbourist, so it makes a lot of sense if you think about it. I had a lot of fun with it. All the details are hand carved and it's painted with food dyes.

Inside, it's a vanilla bean cake with vanilla buttercream and strawberry preserves.

Hey guys!

Long time, no write. I do check DA once in awhile, though - it's just one of those sites that I can't abandon completely, even though I haven't been up to much sculpting these days.

That's the artists life, though (if you can call me that, I've always struggled with that term). Sometimes the motivation and inspiration leaves you. In my case, it's been almost a year since I last sculpted something. It doesn't help that I am the kind of person that I am. I'll spare you the story of my life, and just tell you that inspiration and motivation often elude me.

I always have to be doing something. And if I'm not sculpting, well, I better figure out something else to do. Something productive and creative. I've always loved cooking and baking - in fact, I went to college for it. I figured I might as well turn it into something that'll keep the bills paid. So that's what I've been up to. It's still artsy, just a different medium.

Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, chocolate... that's what I've been up to. It's been interesting. I've done a lot of markets and even some weddings. It's not as creative as sculpting, but it's like building with Lego, and I like Lego.

My sculpting studio sits vacant and cold, though. I went in there a few months ago to tidy it up, hoping that by cleaning it I might re-ignite a little spark, and it felt like it might happen. I even finished a sculpture that I had started a long time ago. It decided to fall over in the oven and as a result it is a permanently hardened mistake - completely squished on the one side. That little shred of inspiration - gone, right out the window. Aw well. I guess it just wasn't meant to work out the way I wanted it to.

I've also got myself not one but two serial copy cats - one who copied my work for years and then fell off the face of the Earth only to come back and do it all over again, and then another one who just recently started. Pretty much all of the stuff I've made has been copied. The only way I could deal with it is with a great amount of time and money - both of which I don't have, and I just can't be bothered to give a crap about it do anything about it anymore, anyways. People can be real scum, that's just the way of it. I haven't made anything recently, so they'll have to go back and copy the things they forgot to copy the first time around, I guess.

In the past while I've lost two people in my life that were important to me. Everybody dies, that's just the way of it. Doesn't change the fact that it can be a real bitch, though. One of them was very unexpected, and the other was sick, then better, then sick, then better, then boom - sick and gone. Death is a real messed up thing - they are there, then they aren't, and it doesn't feel real. Until you need to talk to them or see something that reminds you of them, then it's real again and again.

I didn't plan on writing this much, but there ya go. I'm still alive.

<3 Kookie
