That pond is so neat, I love it.  I looks relaxing and also I like how you made a home for the amphibians.  I am happy that you caught the snake and released it somewhere else instead of killing it like many people do. =0)  I like the plants and the rocks also.....I like everything ah ha.  Nice job.

Wow, that is so neat.  $2 and the time it took compared to $98.....that is just great!  What savings.

I have never heard of Overlay Crocheting before either, but that is beautiful. Love the colours and design!

Just by the small thumbnail picture, I knew what this was exactly, so cool!  Love it. Very nicely done.

These are terribly cute!  Amazing detail, I love the octopus.

Wow, I was instantly drawn to these. Did you have to coat them in a protective sealant?  I think they are beautiful, they look like a mosaic.  That is a neat idea to dress up your garden.

Yes, I did. I added latex to the glue I used and put 3 extra layers of clear lacquer on top.  ( this is the method I've used for outside papermache stuff for years, it used to work perfectly) Unfortunately I only found out afterwards that german factories don't produce waterproof lacquer any more. I tried to rescue what I could in the fall, but I'm told they did not survive the winter. So I guess I'll give it another try as soon as it's warm outside again and I've imported waterproof lacquer for somewhere =)

That is too bad that they didn't make it through the rough weather.  I guess it is bad for the environment.  I hear here in Ontario Canada that they are going to stop making and selling certain paints and varnishes aswell too.  What are we crafty people to do.   Huh

I think you did a fantastic job on the floor.  From the before to the after, big change.  I know what it is like to not have the funds for stuff.  But this looks good for just being plywood.  I am interested so now I am going to check out your link.  I have some floors that need to be re-done.  Good job.

Wow! That is really cool, great job!
Thanks PixieVal! Wink

They look wonderful... I love the scales and the articulation of the hands. I'm interested to see how they translate to mache!
Thanks AnarchyCupcakes, I am also wondering what it is going to look like once in paper mache, soon I will find out.  I am hoping to get some time to work on it soon lol. 

Thanks again for the comments. Grin
29  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Plasticine Clay Mold for Mermaid Sculpture on: April 01, 2011 07:42:36 AM
Hope it is alright to put this plasticine clay in this section.
This is a mermaid face I sculpted out of plasticine clay for a mermaid sculpture I am making out of paper mache.  I also made some hands.  These will be used as a mold for paper mache.
Thought I would share it before I cover it in vasiline.  Not sure what shape it will be in afterwards.....

If there are any questions I will try and answer.  Wink
