This is a line from one of the songs from the 60's movie, Wild in the Streets, and it is stuck in my head. Last week my DH played it several times and you know how you just can't get rid of a song that you heard? Yeah, it's stuck there so I thought I would just go with it and let today be a new day.
I worked with polymer clay all last week and not all of my efforts were successful, but I did make this piece that I am happy with...
DH was diligent with the camera and finally got a picture that shows the layers of this piece. I made the disc out of black clay, distressed it and aged it with red, green and yellow acrylic paint. I then coated it with Kato liquid clay and used the heat gun to bring it to a shine and then I applied metallic foil film (3 different foils) to the warm clay and gave a quick pull on the film, for the metallic effects you see here. The center piece of silver colored polymer clay was done using the foil also. The stone in the middle is actually a dark green glass nugget from my mosaic supplies. I attached a purchased silver bail and leather strip and there you have it.
So, it's a new day. A day to do whatever you have been postponing. A day to break a bad habit. A day to do art. A day to love.
Even if you don't use it "wisely", it is still a new day and guess what??? You get it every day. There's no wonder I love life.
