21  Claystiel - Supernatural's Castiel in polymer in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by sharktopus on: March 08, 2012 05:28:58 AM

So I am steadily re-teaching myself fun things about polymer. It's been a while since I've messed with clay. This is one of the first things I made since reentering the fun world of Fimo.  I figure I'll make the rest of the cast eventually. 

He's actually slightly flat in back, enough to comfortably adhear him to something. I think I might make a shadowbox. That, or I'll glue him to a pop bottle top and he can live next to my clay Doctor (Doctor Who, David Tennant) on my shelf.

Now that I've uploaded the picture, I can see he has a little tan smudge on his tie, and it's just...killing me. Might have to sand that off.

Anyway, comments and crit always welcome!  Supernatural love encouraged!

22  Teaching Toddlers To Sew...a series of mishaps, one mouse, and a cat. in Completed Projects by sharktopus on: January 29, 2012 06:51:08 AM

Firstly, please excuse the quality of these photos. I took them with my tablet and it was horribly awkward (the camera is on the front, and it's just...very awkward).

Anyway,  recently my daughter has taken a serious liking to all things crafty. She's three, and fairly dexterous, so I set her up with some felt cut outs and an needle (that I dulled a bit for safety purposes) and let her be.

Keeping the shapes simple, I marked around the edges with dots, and did about three stitches myself to get her started. After that, she was off.  I had to keep the thread fairly short because her arms are short, and it just resulted in a tangle.

We made a mickey, and a hello kitty (her favorite), along with a dog, a shark, and another cat, but she gave those to her cousins for Christmas. 

It keeps her occupied for a good hour when I need it, and has helped her in leaps and bounds when it's come to patience. Which is serious business when you're three! Anyway, I am super proud of her, and kind of just wanted to brag.

Maybe eventually (when I have a proper camera) I'll post my own crafts!
