Star Face Christmas Ornaments

4-1/2" x 5" Star Wizard Man Ornament

I wanted to create a star ornament that felt a bit more funky than sweet and  pretty.  This goatee man fit the bill. You could imagine this face on a jazz musician from back in the 60's, but I felt the need of a hat and now he looks a little more like a wizard...a hip wizard.

4-1/2" x 4-1/2" Star Hippie Man Ornament
This playful ornament started with the thought of the winter wind but then I gave him a hippie twist.  I had some left over leather pieces and made the headband with some real leather.  Both of these star ornaments started with a wooden star from Michaels and then sculpting air dry paper clay over the top.  Hippie man has papers underneath a white glazing.

I've been staring at them too long...which one do you like more?

Les deux sont très différents et beaux à la fois...
Cependant j'aime beaucoup le dernier avec cette petite bouche ronde...

Gros bisous
