Eakes on PCDaily

Take one television show, 5 pounds of clay, 50 patterned canes, 4800 slices, a 30″x 40″ canvas and what do you end up with? A lovely portrait of actress Sophie Turner from the Game of Thrones television series.

Well that’s what you end up with if you’re Julie Eakes. She brings plenty of intensity and expertise to her latest project…to say nothing of the hours and hours she spent assembling it. The subtle skin tones were a big challenge.

Not only is this Julie’s most ambitious mosaic piece, it’s also the one she’s most proud of. Follow the in-progress shots and explanations on her blog. Then fast-forward through the construction on YouTube.

Julie’s also been unveiling her work on Facebook. Thanks for letting us look over your shoulder, Julie.

        Wow! That is amazing! Being able to break an image down into thousands of different colored squares is mind boggling to me. Three or four colors is sometimes a chalange for me.

                  I don’t want to work polymer clay anymore! (Cry,cry,cry….) It’s overwhelming, even frustrating! Lol!
