I've been playing around with a little goat doll pattern and, coincidentally, just gotten a hold of some paper clay. This is what happened when I combined the two.
The goat's markings were created with regular felt markers, borrowed from boy child. The legs have wires through so they can be shaped and curled and even hung from a bar so it can be a goat-opossum, if I please.
I love the paper clay. So light weight and agreeable. The horns, since I failed to plan ahead appropriately, are just glued in place with contact cement. Works surprisingly well. Next time, though, I'll make it better. Still thinking about how.
The greatest challenging was having the goat sit nicely, but a circular piece of cardboard sewn into the base did the trick.
I've made some changes to define the jaw a bit more for the next one and I think I will do regular cloth arms and legs to make it a sort of goat person. Of course, now that I've said, 'goat person', I feel certain I need to make a satyr. Back to the sewing table...
