These are my 2nd attempt at clay. (1st was the post about Glow in the Dark)

My Turkey (and fav out of this batch) Beads used for eyes, beak & red thingy


Christmas Tree for MIL (theres a hole for her to use it as an ornament/pendant)


Partial group picture (i forgot to take a better pic of the witch hat and clay beads)


Partial group picture (Dog, donut, cookie, clue, tuit, and pretzel.  glass beads for accents)


Pun Pendents (Round To It and A Clue.  Scratched into clay before baking with a saftey pin)


Dog/Fox (eyes and nose are beads. I ended up painting it to look like their mini collie, but MIL took it before I got pics)

It looks like you've been having lots of fun and I have to tell you I'm absolutely in love with your turkey!  Cheesy  He's so cute and innocent looking!

I also really, really like your use of beads for facial features.  Very clever!

Very nice... I like the way you did the xmas tree and garland too.

On the pun pendants, I'd be tempted to delineate the text a bit more by either giving the background of the pendant's face a color, or giving the indentions a color... had you thought of that?  If you don't know how, one easy way would be to apply a mica powder (like Pearl Ex--gold perhaps) all over the top part of the clay with a finger, leaving the indented parts brown... looks festive and elegant too.

Thanks!  I hadn't thought about accenting the puns.  I'll keep that in mind if/when I make more of them.  I'll probably do other colors too.

great job
Thank you.  MIL tryed to steal him, too. 

Hubby says I should put leggs on the turkey.  I tried but they didn't hold him up.  Anyway, I think he's good the way he is (he can't run very far w/out legs, can he?)
