Impressive Felted Jerry Garcia Sculpture
This sculpture has exceptional detail AND personality! The use of clay on the guitar was spot on, and read how she made the glasses!
“Here is my first sculpture of a person..Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead!
It was inspired by my brother, who is a huge Greatful Dead fan, and he urged me to create this for his fan club. I used 12G Armature Wire, CW-1 Core Wool, MC-1 batts in the colors ‘Fleshtone’ [ Now Sand], ‘Linen‘, ‘Bonsai‘, ‘Black Onyx‘, and ‘Willow‘, Lincoln Natural Locks in Lamb Gray, 4mm brown glass eyes, 20G Gun Metal Gray craft wire for glasses, and Premo clay in brown, black, ecru and silver for the guitar. I also used some brown ribbon for the guitar strap.
I taught myself a great way to make eye glasses. I used a dowel to wrap the wire around and then just bent the sides to form the arms. They turned out just right and I only used a small, single piece of craft wire. This was sooooooo much fun to make!!!
My plan is to make Frankenstein next, and I just ordered more supplies for him!
Thanks for your fantastic store and products!”
