Okay...so remember I made those Jarheads? Two Jarheads and a Potty Mouth to be exact. But I couldn't post the picture of the one Jarhead because it was a birthday gift for my daughter? Well, I can now. It's been delivered by my sister and she's opened the box...and she LOVES it!
A little background on it before I post. It's a Miner...Coal Miner to be exact...see his 'coal' nose? She's a mechanical engineer in the processing plant at a coal mine. Her sweetie pie is a heavy duty mechanic. So...this little guy is wearing the coveralls that her b/f wears. Seems I got it exactly right! When I finished him I thought he was a little boring....which is why I added a little more colour on the one 'eye', but once finished I was pretty happy with him...that underglaze wash gives them so much depth! My very favourite thing about him is his hard hat. I was soooo happy with the way it turned out. When I first made it...before I attached it to the head, I thought about making small hard hat bowls! The best thing is....he's the perfect size for a cookie jar!
Here he is!
