More uses for scrap clay...

I am still playing with left over clay. Scraps, ends of canes, colors twisted together...you know what I mean.

This one started because I thought the swirly clay looked like a lake, the rest just happened.


More swirls reminded me of lollipop flowers, added some slices of reddish canes and there you go.

You knew I'd have to do one of my girls. I am using silver clay for those natural highlights, that we all seem to be getting these days. My girl is rockin' her gray!

I made these "pictures" on 4" x 6" index cards, and after dotting on some gold gel pen accents, I baked them right on the card. After they cooled, I was able to peel the card off, for a smooth back, that I will eventually glue onto a support and frame in a 5 x 7 frame. I photographed them on a sheet of craft foam for continuity

That's all for today. Take care and keep making art!

Those are wonderful, Susan! That's more the type of thing I used to do before I got brave and tried my hand at the ATCs which lead to my discovery of my girls. :)

Ooooh... I want to go play with my clay now!

Very creative use of clay. I think the top pic looks like a fairy door.
