Beginner Clay Work! On the Road.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi Everybody!  I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  I am out here in Nashville visiting my brother and his family.  We had a craft day and were playing with some clay.  I just had to show you what Rachel and Emily made with some of the clay.  They are 9 years old and have never played with polymer clay before.  Emily loves creatures of all kinds.  She wanted to make a turtle so I showed her how we could make a cane to make the shell more colorful.  Rachel wanted to make a hermit crab, because they used to have them.  She did it all on her own.  It is amazing.  They both then started making all kinds of accessories for the turtle.  Emily decided it needed an airplane.  Rachel decided it needed some glasses.  They went on and on… We had a great time.  I think I got their big sister Sarah hooked too, but she has already done clay and is an excellent artist in her own right.  She loves to draw.  -K

Dragon Berries

Today there was a little napping going on in the garden. No, not me. It is a tad too hot for me. But I guess not too hot for a fire-breather!

This polymer clay guy is happily resting on his nest of greens and berries in my garden. Uh oh, I think we woke him up…

 I had fun making this little baby. I need to make him some brothers and sisters.  – T
