I was browsing Pinterest the other day and discovered polymer clay monsters that were pretty much too cute for words, so, being me, I decided that I had to integrate such monstrous inspiration into a guerrilla art project. Because adorable monsters! I confess this required a trip to Michael’s to purchase white polymer clay, but I also discovered a use for an old tea tin so didn’t entirely fall off the reused objects bandwagon!
I’ve been playing with polymer clay for years now, but I’ve never made something quite this large before and it was a lot of fun! The idea of a message in a bottle has always appealed to me due to the adventure that is often associated with such, so I decided to make my own version to appeal to some mystery person’s curiosity. There is a note inside in classic Guerrilla Lovely poetic form. It basically portrays the message that this monster can hold secret treasures, but that the truest treasures are shared joy and love. Then, of course I had to integrate crochet in somehow, so I gave it a nice, warm scarf!
This little monster is currently residing on a table at Friends and Neighbors on Whyte Ave, but is looking for a new place to call home!
