Those both look really cool. Great job Smiley.

And, I think the Washington Monument in a fries container would be the perfect dainty addition to any windowsill garden!

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

This is amazing. I'm currently studying Archaeology at Glasgow University and just wrote an essay on pictish stones - these are beautiful reworkings of them!

The title for this thread alone makes this project cool. I think you should do a series of monuments in teacups. Smiley

amalgam- I actually really like the idea of little cottages in teacups. But, my first little cottage turned out rather poorly. I was a bit too ambitious about the brick texture I gave it Sad.

Love the stones! (...but of course they should have been made from polymer clay ...lolol Grin).

I love miniature stuctures too.  A friend once made a number of tiny little cottages from polymer clay (as hollow, bottomless house "shells"), then sat each one over one of the tiny lights on a string of xmas minilights (on top of some angel hair, as I remember, though some she managed to sit in the branches of her xmas tree too); they were so-ooo wonderful.  
Her little houses were decorated with snow and winter themes, and the windows were made from translucent yellow clay so the LED's made them glow softly from inside, but they could be anything.
If you're interested in some ideas and lessons re making miniature clay cottages, etc, you might have fun checking out Gail Ritchey's book called Making Miniature Villages in Polymer Clay:
http://www.amazon.com/Making-Miniature-Villages-Polymer-Clay/dp/0891349561/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260290747&sr=8-1
(there may be copies at libraries, or the amazon one can be "looked inside" and amazon also has cheap "used" copies)
There are also some lessons and ideas on the Houses/Structures page of my polymer site for similar clay things too, as well as "bricks," etc, if you're interested:

P.S.  I see you may be interested in masks too so if you'd like to see a bunch of large-to-miniature polymer clay ones, take a look at this page:

Amazing work and great idea!!!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
