Gandalf the Grey
This is a polymer clay figure of Gandalf that I recently built; I thought it would be fun to document the process and make a tutorial for anyone else who would like to give it a try.

The tutorial is posted here at lotr_community as part of the January Potluck Challenge: "How to Make Gandalf the Grey

Bag End Polymer Clay Projects
I've been meaning to post these projects here for a while.Read more...Collapse )

I need to make a second try at taking a picture of the last one, as the light was not too good.

Hobbit sock dolls
At last I have finished all my hobbit sock dolls!

Here are the lads in their home on top of my desk, left to right, Sam, Frodo, Merry and Pippin.

Sam doll
Here is a link to my art entry for Back-to-Middle-earth Month. It's a Sam Gamgee sock doll.

He's actually my second Sam. I made the first one as a gift, and you can see him here.

They are very different in some ways--I like the way they both came out.

Frodo's finished, Merry's nearly finished, and I will soon start on Pippin! I'll post more pics when I take some!

I made three versions of the Elessar for B2MEM and Dreamflower kindly invited me to post them here. :-)

I was working from this prompt: "My heart will be glad, even in the winter." (Fellowship of the Ring, "Lothlórien")
Winter brings with it the darkest time of the year but also a return to light. Write or create art about a moment in a character's life when she or he began to perceive hope in the midst of darkness.

And was further inspired by this quote from the same chapter:

'Yet maybe this will lighten your heart,' said Galadriel; 'for it was left in my care to be given to you, should you pass through this land.' Then she lifted from her lap a great stone of a clear green, set in a silver brooch that was wrought in the likeness of an eagle with outspread wings; and as she held it up the gem flashed like the sun shining through the leaves of spring. 'This stone I gave to Celebrían my daughter, and she to hers; and now it comes to you as a token of hope. In this hour take the name that was foretold for you, Elessar, the Elfstone of the house of Elendil!

The idea of the Elessar seemed perfectly related to the prompt--the idea of glad heart and a return to hope/light.

So, I decided to remake that jewel.

On October 29, 2011 I posted the first block in the Fandom in Stitches There and Back Again quilt project. Here's the finished wall-hanging sized quilt.

A number of photos under the cutCollapse )

Patterns for all the blocks are available at the link above. Starting in January, they will start a LOTR project. I'm really  hoping it will be similar in style and form factor, so I can make a matched set.

(Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with them.)
