Doctor Seuss’ birthday is March 2nd. In honor of one of my beloved memories from childhood I created this Green Eggs & Ham charm to celebrate the day.
For those that follow my posts, yes they are mostly about Doctor Who, but this Doctor is high on my list as well!
So Happy Birthday Doctor Seuss! I will be wearing my charm proudly on the 2nd of March!
I have posted these at my Etsy Shop as well for any other Doctor Seuss Lovers out there!
I was working on some new Weeping Angels last night (there curing now in the oven). I decided to change up the color blend a little. I added about 1/4 of a pack of Silver Premo Accent to my grey blend to give my finished project a little sparkle. My mix turned super goopy, sticky, and just not pleasant to work with. The warmer the clay became the stickier it felt to me. While the finished project looks like it should, it took me much longer to get to the finished look I desired. I did put the clay in the fridge for a bit to harden up so my little angel heads wouldn’t go smoosh when I added the hair, something I do not have to do when I use my straight clay blend.
I just thought I would share my experience. In the future I plan to use the sparkly Premo in very small amounts. For me the effect isn’t worth working with a goopy, sticky clay.
Here are my little weeping angels baking in my Deni Oven. As you can see I keep them facing each other so I can BLINK all I want! (Doctor Who fans would definitely understand)
I finished my Weeping Angels today and have put one up at my Etsy shop to share with other Whovians!
100% Handmade using polymer clay. These angels were created with a hand mixed grey polymer clay and a tad bit of silver sparkle clay to get a more stone like appearance.
I think I am going to make some more Ood tonight because I could never have enough! I love the Ood!- also in my Etsy Shop
My parents lost their faithful little companion of 16 years yesterday. He was the sweetest little dog. 16 years is a long time and with his heart condition we all knew the time for him the leave the world was coming, although one can never be prepared. My parents are so sad, I am sad for them.
I couldn’t stop thinking about little Corky and my parents last night. I pulled out the polymer and decided to make a sweet little pup inspired of course by the Corkster (the name I always called him by).
He was always a happy little chap even when he was so frail at the end. I hope I have captured him well enough that when the time is right to give him to my parents they smile.
Corky was a West Highland White Terrier, although my parents insisted that he be groomed to resemble a Scottish Terrier. They are a little quirky!
