World of WarCrafts brings you arts and crafts around a theme this week: rock, paper and scissors. First up: "rock" -- a ceramic wind rider cub from Lakira of US Area 52. "I made this statue in my HS ceramics art class as an extra project," writes Lakira. "He's made out of clay and painted with acrylics. I later added some brown felt fur for his little mane; I didn't have any faux brown fur, but I think he looks better with the felt!"
"I toiled over a few weeks, working out his design and hoping he wouldn't chip or break -- or even worse, blow up in the kiln," Lakira continues. "After he was finally fired, I had to finish painting him fast, in fear of someone stealing him. It's happened before, blah! I've never done anything really on this scale before; I've made tiny fel hound figures, but that was about it."
Our verdict: adorable! Follow us past the break for more rock, paper, scissors crafts.
Ok, work with us here on this next creation; we're going to classify plastic figures as "sculptures" to get us into the "rock" category and bring you an update on the previously featured My Little Zhevra. Thatg33kgirl is back again with more WoW ponies in night elf and wintersaber themes.
A call on Twitter for WoW-themed crafts yielded both a "rock" and a "paper" response from Shadon of US Eonar. Above is Shadon's orc statue, made clay left over from a college art class. And to the right, we have more artwork from Shadon, this time in the "paper" category.
Finally, moving on to "paper" and "scissors," we have a link to a blog that has a fantastic batch of WoW papercraft photos. (We profiled papercraft early this year here on World of WarCrafts.)
And in one more "paper-scissors" submission, we bring you these cards from Stamp Off, Eh! The idea was to breathe a hint of WoW culture into notecards that would work for non-players. Click over and take a look -- we think it's a "notable" success!
