11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Claystiel - Supernatural's Castiel in polymer 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!
12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Teaching Toddlers To Sew...a series of mishaps, one mouse, and a cat. 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!
