My princess (four hands fimo)

My princess (four hands fimo)

When a child is born, popular belief usually puts us in a cabbage or a rose. How sad !!! It’s wrong !!! A child is brought in chatbus, in a farandole of blacks and other mythical creatures !!! Above the cradle of wood and feathers of ours were fairy tales, quickly swept by grumpy trolls, chubby mushrooms and, rare thing, a blue leopard giraffe !!! All thanks to the magic of the fimo and Dedee André … but do not say it, I risk the stake!

Trolls, dragons and other chimeras.

I admit, I’m for something, if I had not bathed in parallel worlds and hallucinated generated by mountebanks of the twentieth century, between Harold the Barrel, the son of Mandrin and other Musical box,

Tolkien, Totoro, and Dedee André.

To make this little beautiful stage, (it is, the devil modesty and other hypocrisies!), I launched a call on social networks because it seemed insurmountable to realize the humanoid part of this adventure. My mother always said to me: “No, you have it; a yes, you’ll get it “, then it’s all the magic of Facebook, a fairy looked into my case and replied:” young wretch, I have something that can interest you! ! ”

(she did not use it wickedly in her words, but it sounds good in the context, then, fantasy of the author!) what do I say, the queen of the fairies, so remarkable is her art, Dedee Andée, a magician of resin and polymer clay, it includes in its resins worlds and wonders, unique moments, it freezes time in unalterable transparencies. Dedee gave life, in her fingers to this little pink creature, which can only be born of the delicacy of a fairy! And she made me a present of this moment. It only remained for me to be up to it.

The bestiary fimo, the grouchy troll.

Inspired by my readings, my wanderings on the canvas and my film culture, I searched in the bottom of my memory the creatures that I would have liked to meet during my whimsical walks. A grouchy troll first, (it’s me actually, that’s what qualifies me the best !!! so easy to do)

Quick modeling, cooking and carving to finish. Nice to work the polymer clay with a scalpel, a zest of sanding, dry pastels funny eyes and a bit perverse a stroke of varnish not to mention the griffounettes to hang on to the cradle, although little needed in view of the nasal appendix that it serves him grappling !!!!

The bestiary fimo, the blue leopard giraffe.

It exists only in a remote area of ​​the Old World, on the borders of Wellostell, on the Heimley River. My wife, in her travels saw some and brought me engravings, I was able to inspire myself.

Of a blue leopard color, we recognize the female through these yellow spots that often go by three. Its slenderness and height give it such speed that its ears are profiled just like its muzzle. An articular setback in the eyebrows allows him to adjust his position in the middle of the race, much like an aircraft today disappeared from our world, catching up with the sun’s course. Blue premo, dry pastels, yellow acrylic, the same funny eyes as the troll, here is this blue leoparded giraffe.

The bestiary fimo, the mushroom chubby.

We forget, we grow and we form, but child, we see our imaginary friend, some deny them, others accept them. they are not scary, they are our guide, but we have forgotten them for most of us. Our princess, she still remembers, she saw an old gentleman, we surprised her to look at the emptiness and talk, and she said, “it’s the Old Man !!! “His old gentleman, whom I have never seen, I represented him as a troll mushroom, chubby and debonair.

Green Prémo, dry pastels again and again, orange acrylic and funny eyes! (I’ve had them for 15 years, this is the first time I use them! Do not throw anything !!!) A sympathetic trombine worthy of Dark Crystal and other productions of Jim Henson who accompanied me for a long time, today still. Jim Henson being the creator of the Muppets show among others. (Note the troll mushroom likes places furnished with odds and ends, hardware and clutter!)

The adventurous adventures of a fimo adventurer

The adventurous adventures of a fimo adventurer

Carcass that dreams … fimo

A beach somewhere, the Atlantic can be or somewhere far away, one of those mild afternoons or it’s good to do nothing.

Carried by a soft spring breeze all dressed in red, lit here and there with crazy touches of color, floating behind him a train of green ribbons steals Sir kite flying.
A foppish with delicacy, a pretty, not a mediocre, sir knows how to cure himself, sir goes out the big game at each of his aerial appearances, we do not go out to do the dandy like that, it’s work every day! !!

Meanwhile, going to her (pre) daily occupations, Mrs. Léontine wanders on the beach in search of an acceptable pittance because since she had abandoned her basic diet, it was not easy to put something under the mandible.

Leontine indeed learned despite herself, after reading an article in a scientific journal, (Grazzia I think or may be TV 7 days …), that she was what is called a coprophagous beetle, a dung beetle. sum, a poop shove what as we say when we’re kids !!! How is she said, but how is this possible, what horror, suddenly, disgusted, she took revenge on other commodities more common but which gave it a certain weight and some would call it coated, chubby d others pushing the adjective until the dress of “plump” !!!

It is true that she is plump Léontine, but that does not prevent him to trudge dunes and valleys on this beach even if this slight and nevertheless disabling overweight now forbids any hope of flight. These frail elytra no longer support its weight. She remembers her wild youth, or, to escape some mischievous or opportunistic too insistent, she fled elegantly in a roar of wings to shudder with jealousy these beautiful Italian pilots at the controls of their seaplane profiled to touch the stars …. Crazy youth .

The wind blows, moving the sand under the legs of Léontine, making his movements difficult. Arriving at the top of a poop, antennas in the wind, the plump profits, get drunk on this sweetness, soon summer will be there and it will be difficult to pass between towels and other umbrellas, so it is light and in an effort , extends all round on the beach.

The sun pampers her but the wind makes her a bit more restless, so in another caloric subtraction effort, she makes a half turn on her back, and finally stabilizes. This is where she first sees him, handsome as a god of crepe paper, colorful like a carnival day in Notting Hill, floating like a deity in the Sistine Chapel, Monsieur Kite.

 

Fimo or corner the bubble

Fimo or corner the bubble

As far as I’m concerned, I’ll stuck the bubble. No fimo this weekend, I will wander between stands, authors and designers … Come, follow me …

Yes, what are you talking about?

Ben, comic salon Montargis, in the Loiret !!! The Montargis lounge stuck the bubble !!! The last weekend of May at the Salle des Festivals, old-fashioned place and kitsch if it is, the perfect setting for this show …

French writer and illustrator of comics. He is the founder of the comic book festival Montargis wedges the bubble created in May 2010. He will have gathered this year with his team, no less than thirty five artists from all horizons, ready for all the dedications !!!! Exhibitions, animations … Booksellers will be present too. I’m lucky to have seen some explanatory leaflets on the exhibits and it titillated Bédésques memories deep in my memory.

At the Médiathèque …

From Montargis, between rivers, glass panels, will be held in parallel a retrospective exhibition on these realistic comics and these authors who rocked and punctuated the childhood of some of us. This exhibition traces the European and South American history of this particular style between the years 1935 and 1965 … A whole program.
Dreaming, bubbling, forgetting the fimo …

The time of a weekend, because in addition to the interest of this 5th Comic Book Fair in Montargis, the city has no shortage of charm for who knows how to look, stories for who knows how to listen, and History anyway. Do not hesitate if time permits, (and if you have any left) to go strolling at the Petit Girodet, Rue Dorée to see some paintings exposed in normal times at the Girodet Museum under construction for the moment … Then go ; let’s be crazy! Returning from Petit Girodet, on the way, have a coffee at Totof, greet Dan on my behalf, and at the end of the Rue Dorée, do not be fooled by the magnificent stained glass windows of the Saint Madeleine church or you will lose the magnificent stall of the Duke of Pralins, creator inspired by the famous pralines, enjoy to ask what is this sculpture in the entrance,

Even if it’s a pebble in the water since you’ve probably read it all for a long time, I do not resist the urge to communicate on the release of the special issue of Polymère & Co dedicated to an artist become a must today.

Polymers and other fimo …

I’m not going to introduce it here since I’ve already said almost everything in the presentation that I devoted to it in this special issue and some time ago in an article I published on this blog, article that you find here.

I just invite you to have a lot of fun with this issue, because it finally allows you to access the “Akak touch”, its techniques, its colors, its advice, all well tied by the editorial and graphic team of Polymer & Co. If you do not have it yet, maybe you can get it in bookstores, if there are any, it’s worse than the buns or so directly at Polymère.

The Griffard, adventurous adventures fimo … the sequel to the first and second episode …

The Griffard, adventurous adventures fimo … the sequel to the first and second episode …

Previously in the adventurous adventures of a Fimo adventurer

Following a summer storm, Léontine was swept away by the unleashed elements, Mr. Kite flying, also lost body and soul, carried away by a gust of wind, broken line above this beach deserted by human beings, thus abandoning the one and the other their brood without protection to the good will of destiny. It was then that this creature appeared, little known, because almost impossible to observe by the common mortal, the Griffard.

The Griffard, the story of an enchantment.

The woody griffin, so difficult to see, was born of ancient enchantment, at a time when the gods themselves were still young.Tired of seeing entire darks disappearing from the anger of the elements they could not control in their immaturity, they charged an old woman, down on Earth, to fix it. This old indigent lived in a hut on the edge of the forest, far from the men who looked at her with an evil eye, accusing her of all the evils, for it was known in the neighborhood that the old woman indulged in practices which few between them could not understand. Little did it matter to her, the considerations of these uneducated beggars and little inclined to the slightest courage, to go out after the sun set was unthinkable. But that’s not the point.

The old woman, exhausted, sat on a block of granite eroded by the spray and set time back on. The wind, abruptly, rose and, in a whirlwind, raised the objects deposited by the magician and, twirling, they assembled. Driftwood, veil torn from a walnut shell, lost buttons and other leather bands and a quartz intertwined, clashing until they were nothing more than a living, strange thing, endowed with strange arms ending with terrifying claws, legs like roots, huge ears, to hear the heartbeats of the abandoned leagues around, a nose capable of feeling all the dangers and infinite goodness …

“Listen to me, you. the gods have charged you to watch over the insects of the Earth. So you must remain invisible to men, never come near their homes unless it is necessary, you will have to raise alone the dwarves and in your life you will be allowed to keep one of these beasts. tame and shape it as you please and then you will be the equal of the gods because you will be the creator, but during your very long life, this chance will only be given once, make good use Griffard. Before leaving, take this, it is a staff of light, it will guide you in the middle of the unleashed elements, take care. Now go! ”

The older woman left, leaving the Griffard, as she named it, to her destiny. Hurrying to take shelter, he took his stick and cracked his knuckles and lost himself in the eyes of men.

 

How then will you tell me, then I know all that, me modest modeller, living in a world where the imagination unimaginable is not possible ??? Just because the ancestor is not unknown to me, she was already very old when she bequeathed her art and knowledge to the grandmother of my mother’s grandmother. This is how this story happened to me and I revealed it to you believing it is over and it is wrong. Imagining the Griffard disappeared for ages, I brought him to the knowledge of men and women, and yet there is little he appeared on a beach, alarmed by the cries of the offspring of Léontine and Mr. flying deer and I Saw it. Judge instead.

The set is made of Fimo Classic and Premo. In addition you will need wire, leather for the strap of the wallet, an amethyst for the power ring and a little brass and gold wire for the firefly stick. The rest, you have already since time !!!!
