I made this stuff to donate to the "Relay for Life" silent auction fundraiser.  It's been so humid, my air dry clay was taking forever to dry and the resin on the eyeballs was still tacky when I dropped them off.  (My car also smells like epoxy, but all for a great cause!)

Here's a poorly-lit shot of the entire basket:

And the monsterrific items inside include:
switch plate cover and magnets (constructed of polymer clay, then painted and resined)

a very goofy monster pin / brooch (also polymer clay)

perhaps my favourite, a poly-clay nightlight (wish I got a pic of him lit up, but light shines through his eyes and mouth and from behind his head.)

And a mixed-media hanging wall sculpture.  (This is the air-dry clay that was giving me so much trouble.)

Hopefully some quirky person will bid on these guys (and raise lots of money for cancer research!)

What a wonderful bundle, I'd bid to give to my nephew!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

What a great package for such a great cause!! I'm sure it will raise loads of money.

Marvelous job!

Very cute! Love the light switch.

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.
