2011 Christmas Ornament for DIFFA by rachaelm5 2011 Christmas Ornament for DIFFA by rachaelm5
This is a Christmas ornament I designed for the KC-based DIFFA charity. DIFFA is "Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS" and you can learn more about them at the DIFFA website. They hold a silent auction and gala each year, and the money they raise goes to AIDS treatment.

I made this thing with Crayola Model Magic, acrylic paint, paint pen, and a couple of plastic beads over a plastic ornament base. There's a baggie of gravel inside to give it some weight, as Model Magic has almost none. It is about seven inches in diameter.

Here are some in-progress, alternate angles, and close-up shots:

Wow. I can't believe how amazing this is. Hope it raised a lot for AIDS.

Thanks very much.

Unfortunately, one has to be a "name" in this local group in order to get any support. Skill is not sufficient. Pretty stupid if you ask me. ;p

That is pretty stupid, and shortsighted, I might add.

Happy holidays and a Happy New Years to you!

Thanks!

...I definitely need more practice before I start offering stuff like this for sale. ;-) This is only the third or forth sculpture I've tried making with Model Magic fluff.
