We made these 2 spoons a while ago but only did the last bit of paint application last night.
The one on the left was made by my good friend Ruth and the one on the right is mine. She was more delicate with her paint application and her sanding and it looks more organic and natural than mine. Needless to say I like the lumpy organic nature of hers and she likes the brightness of mine.
I made some more faux turquoise things including quite a lot of 'tumble chip beads'.
It's my birthday today and we have lots of things planned (mainly revolving round food it seems). I got some lovely presents; ice cream maker, an amaco bead baking rack and some money to pay for some polymer clay workshops. I have just booked to go to Christine Dumont's Pods and Cocoons workshop in London in a few weeks. I am very much enjoying life - just need to find some more time to play with my polymer clay as well.
hope you are all having a good weekend and I look forward to sharing my latest couple of projects with you soon
It's the school holidays and the kids are home keeping me busy!! we've had a week camping with our friends and done lot of swimming. We have only played with some polymer clay a bit making some tiny bones which we have been playing treasure hunts with and enclosing in treasure rocks (rock like salt dough) to excavate.
Tonight I finally felt awake enough to play with my clay. I am working on a blue and white project. Here is two of the canes I made for it - spot the difference between them? Amazing the difference an extra layer of blue made. I was rushing a bit so the stripes could of been more even (note to self - don't rush!)
I am Cara Jane Hayman aka Surfingcat. I live in Bristol with my lovely husband and 2 (mainly) lovely children who are 5 and nearly 7 years old. They keep me busy and I teach in a local school 1 day a week but when I have a moment what I love to do is make things (oh and surf the internet). The surfingcat thing came about in the good old days when I used to do some real surfing - the wet kind!
