Bugaboos. They are so cute that no one could possibly be afraid of them, but they think they are quite scary just like many of our own scary thoughts and fears. That is what a Bugaboo means to me. I look at my bugaboo and I am reminded that the things I think are scary and the mean things I tell myself, are usually not that scary or true.
Definition of BUGABOO

These are made with gray polymer clay playfully and spontaneously hand formed and then painted with concentrated acrylic paint in thin, very permanent coats. I use very light coatings dabbed on with my finger to produce the shadow effects. They are lightly sprayed just to further protect the natural, matte finish.
I am not selling this right now, and these were made for friends for Christmas. I am thinking about making some for the shop. If you want a bugaboo of your own right now, just send me an email and I will make you one!
