Monster!


Monster!

His name is "Grummelchen". 
Grummel is a person which is grummelig or which grummels. Okay, how to translate "grummeln"? It means something like to rumble, to mumble, to chunter, to snarl or just being grumpy! Not too strong but being a little bit this way. 
So... and in german you can play and belittle the word by adding a "chen" at the end. Not for every word, but a lot! Like a tiny grumpy person = "Grummelchen" Of course Grummelchen sounds way better ^^

I sewed him out of strong and heavy wool felt (Walkloden in german). You see, he is the first (but definitely not the last!) of my tiny handsewn monsters! He just evolved by playing with the felt and creating my first eyeballs out of fimo. Things like monsters just happens! They do!


I made a little mistake with the glue so I added some eyebrows which enhances his grumpy look!


The eyeballs are made out of white polymer clay (fimo), the colours is painted and then a thick layer of liquid fimo was added to create a lense effect. And of course lacquer, shiny lacquer! Otherwise the liquid fimo wouldn't be so transparent. 


Some little air bubbles were trapped but I still love my first eyeballs!


Monsters also needs some teeth and they were also made out of fimo!


In the morning...


...you see the striking resemblance? 


...but invisible in the green gras...! Beware of the monsters! They are everywhere! ^^

  10. This would be perfect at my house for when my daughter or I are in a bad mood. We could get out Grummelchen and it would be understood that we are just in a mood! Really cute. Thanks for stopping by Quirky Vistas and following! I'm now following you too.
