I love all the paintbrushes we've been seeing, especially the animals, especially that bird from teag! That's adorable.

And artista83, a lot of things can be baked with clay. It's just a general no-no to bake plastics due to toxins and melting. Even then, some people still bake it, but take extra precautions. You will soon see that yours made it into the oven... I stole the theme off of a previous swap so hopefully you still like it.

And here is my wonderful fairy brush from artista83!



The colors and shimmery-ness are awesome! The colors are a little darker person. Here are a couple of close-ups.



The butterbee was made out of dried paint and it's position is pose-able. The fairy's face looks great.



There's not really a good way to hang her, so she's made her home among the plants in the craft room/office.



Thank you again artista83!

I'm lucky when it comes to cameras. I currently have a Cannon EOS Rebel XTi. My dad's a photographer, and I got his old camera when he got his two new ones.

The background is easy! It's a big sheet of white paper (the kind that comes on a roll) with the top part taped to the window and the bottom part taped to the desk. It's kept tight enough that it doesn't crease on the bottom. Normally, I'd use a desk lamp or two pointed at the piece, but last weekend I also got my dad's third oldest camera flash.

I'm very happy to have her for my plant. All of my plants are supposed to have buddies to keep them company (usually rock or ceramic animals), but I just realized that pot was previously empty and lonely! Not anymore!

This is such a creative brush!  I have no idea how one can look at a brush and see a tongue...but, now that it is done...wow!  You are indeed a talented artist cyndy225!!

Love this crazy, funny and well done brush!

Paintbrush as a tongue! I love it. Wow, when we alter paintbrushes we alter! What more wild and wonderful paintbruses will we see? I check every day and since we are coming close to final send out, this should get even better.
