A couple weeks ago, I introduced you to some new work. You can read about those first pieces here.
Last week I continued playing with the totem idea and created some new variations on this theme.
This first Janus totem is colored with alcohol inks and has a square base.
I was a bit disappointed with the next Janus Totem. The colors aren’t great and one of the faces didn’t turn out as I hoped. However, the palette of decorative chalks that I used to color both faces gave me a new idea.
Since I wasn’t pleased with my second attempt, I decided to try something completely different in the body construction of the third Janus totem.
Instead of tube beads, I made a pillow bead for the body. I colored the entire piece with assorted decorative chalks. And then I used wire to pull all the pieces together.
Drum roll please….
The Bobbling Janus Totem:
The Bobble Janus Totem stands 7.5″ tall (base to wire.)
And since it is hard to capture the movement of this totem in still pictures, watch this short video where the Bobble Janus Totem gives a little demo of his moves.
