Featuring a prize from Persephone Rose!

Mythical Creatures Challenge
April 26-May 28June 30
Voting May 29-June 4July 1-7
Winner Announced June 5thJuly 8.

Create a piece using polymer, air-dry, ceramic, porcelain, or metal clay.  It must have something to do with a mythical creature like mermaids, centaurs, jackalopes, and bigfoot.

The Specifics:
Post your craft between April 26th and June 30, no later.
Voting will take place July 1 -7

At some point on July 8th, the winner will be announced

Each participant can enter ONE project.

You may use polymer clay, air dry clay, ceramic, or precious metal clay.  At least 75% of your piece must be made of one or more of these materials.

It has to be a current piece. It can not be something that you have already made and posted.  It is OK if you started it after I gave the go-ahead a few weeks ago.

At the end, I will set up a poll and the winner will be announced

Please DO NOT post your completed Project on this thread.


PRIZE!!!!

The Craftster with the most votes at the end of the voting period will receive his/her choice of one item under $15 (excluding steampunk earrings) from Persephone Rose.  There are loads of great things under $15.  You should totally check it out!  Beautiful stuff.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Good luck and have fun!

Does this piece have to be exclusively clay, or can it be a mixed media piece? Like a doll who's head arms and legs are clay but the body and clothes etc are cloth.

I could kiss the person who gave us an extra month, wanted to get involved in this challenge but the old deadline fell on my university deadlines and such, but I now have 2 (ish) weeks of waiting (Or "reading weeks") to get results, so I'm definitely going to enter something, it's all planned out (even doodled out a plan) and it's going to look fab!

Sorry if i'm being thick, but how do we vote on the entries??   I guess we're in the voting stage now.   

It's actually quite tough to pick one  Undecided     I would have entered but only found out about it a few days before deadline.  Can we have another month please  Cheesy

I'm definitely up for the next one..

Anyway how do i vote???

ok, you guys have to relax a bit. Smiley  I'm currently at a doctor's appointment.  After I get done & run some errands, I will have a poll set up.  Doing polls is tricky on my phone. Cheesy  so it should be up in a few hours.  Before 10 PM EST.
