The 2nd sculpture

You may have read my post about the workshop I went to with Dad if not you can read it here.

I had got the Paverpol bug, after attending the workshop and having such a great time.
So I brought some to take home and make some more
and here is what I've done so far.

(She lives on the bookshelf, but the pictures kept coming out to dark so she's posing on the cupboard for now.)

She is made in the same bronze colour as my first attempt.
For her gown I used part of an old cotton duvet cover that had some pretty embroidery along the edge.
(this doesn't seem to show up to well in the pictures.)

Her nightie was made from an off cut of broderie anglaise and her hair was wool off cuts.

She was quiet a lot fiddlier than my first attempt, because she's sitting and it was difficult to get the fabric to hang right and stay in place.

But I got there in the end.

She was given a second coat of bronze to brighten her up and viola!

Shelley had asked me to post a final picture of the first attempt once she was totally finished.
Again my photo is awful, but here she is. She lives in the bathroom. The colour finish is hard to see here, but she is the same as the figure above.

Thanks for dropping by.

Love Katie



  1. hello Katie,
    I did read the first post about your sculpture course and thought your lady was lovely but this is something else....absolutely stunning....I think perhaps you've found an outlet for your creativeness...perhaps you should pursue it more!!
    Had you done sculpturing before this?

    Pop into my giveaway when you can Katie...I'd hate you to miss it. :-)

  2. Hello Katie

    Wow what beautiful sculptures. I like the fact she lounges
    along side your books.
    I just wanted to say thank you for holding the jar swap and giving me such a lovely partner, Maria from Rosey Tinted Spectacles. Have a crafty week.

  3. Wow - blows me away, absolutely stunningly beautiful. You must make more, you have a true talent, she is wonderful! x

  4. Hi Katie,

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. You are very creative so I'm sure you could make a ripple blanket. Just learn to crochet first and get that first row done correctly, then the rest will fall in place. One person in our group had to start her blanket over because she messed up one stitch in the beginning :-( I like your blog. It's very cute. I'm your newest follower.
