You say addiction like it's a bad thing.
Maybe this addiction won't last long, but for now
it's really fun!
And it's all Cynthia's fault.
Well, it's always nice to blame someone else for your own addiction, right?
Seriously, though...when I saw her blog post on polymer clay
I decided to give it a whirl. I was about to purchase some ceramic clay yesterday
but instead decided to pick up a couple packages of FIMO.
|Three Biggie Beads|
This has been a FUN two days!
|We'll call these "bendies" because...well, they bend!|
That's right. It seems if you get the clay too thin it won't completely harden.
Maybe someone has a hint for me about that.
Or maybe I'll need to purchase a tute.
Or maybe I *LIKE* them bendy! Yeah, that's it!
|Made in a mold of an ammonite....|
Yes, I made several molds when I first started getting into
(And speaking of that...I have some bronze in the kiln today.)
|Molded in the actual ammonite.|
|Had to try out adding wires...seems to work okay.|
|My tendency for earth colors seems apparent....|
And seriously, I have a ton of acrylics...even some nice bright colors.
I just could.not.do.it.on.these.
|There's one thing about the painting....I can't keep my hands out of it.|
Never could. Never will.
|And this is a group of red clay that just came out of the oven.|
I can't get over how it looks like red ceramic clay!
Just a couple closeups...because I wanted to.
Now I have to figure out whether to spray them with Krylon Matte Finish
or...just rub them with some wax. Or both?
