Just Claying Around

Wahh, Wahh, I'm sore. I have "weed eater arms". I try to pace myself, I really do, but I always end up getting sore. Our yard looks good though. I really didn't weed eat that much, just some in the front yard and around several trees, oh and down the bank some. Hmm, maybe I didn't pace myself so well. Anyway...

While waiting for my new clay to arrive, I have been practicing making flowers with polymer clay. Icing roses using a piping tube are a lot easier, I can tell you. Practice helps though. (You notice I didn't say perfect)


Then I messed around with Sculpey Ultra Light and made some bangle bracelets. I used craft wire for the base and covered it with the ultralight clay. After baking, I painted and added some eyes and dots.



And last, but not least, my scrap clay project. He looks a bit like a sea creature. You decide.


That's it for today. I hope everyone is feeling well and staying out of germ ladened areas. Take care and stay healthy.

Until then...

The roses look great. The braclet makes me think of pretzels...I must be hungry.

Terrific clay pieces! The last little guy looks like a sea horse - very sweet, and I love the idea of clay bangle bracelets. The roses are beautiful - they remind me of the wedding cakes at the bakery I worked at waaaaay back in high school. Frosting! Yum!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

Stay healthy,
Angela

OMG those flowers are terrific girl. I love them! Great work. Now, pat yourself on the back for being macho and weedeating the yard. I love doing macho stuff too. Just hate the soreness! Heehee

We have swine flu in our area. But not in town yet. We live in the NW suburbs of Chicago, so it is inevitable we will see it. We live by O'Hare Airport.
Love the pretzel bracelet. Flowers are tough, those are gorgeous!!! That sea horse character is too fun! Love his colors.
I have to go to court tomorrow about my accident, they held my license hostage to ensure I show up for my court date. I am nervous. My husband said if the lady I hit is a no show they toss the case and I won't get a ticket, but if she shows, I may get a ticket and lose points. UGGG. I will be glad when it is over.
Hugs and Happy Sunday, hope your arms are well rested and ready to play with more clay!!!

You really know how to work the Sculpey! The bangles kind-of look like pretzels, yum.. and the sea creature looks like a "parrot fish"?
