One of thing's I've been wanting to do for ages is use polymer clay. As you know I've made with bronze and silver clay and I do love my little people so when I came across Dee Schiller on Facebook through Carol Douglas who I did a workshop with a few months ago I was over the moon.
I first bought her book and then a couple of her Oddfae creations and then joined a Yahoo workshop she has to make her Shellfae. And this is my little chap.
I'm over the moon with him! I don't think his head has cooled down enough yet as he hasn't told me his name, I'm sure he will in time. *he now tells me his name is Douglas. Must be a reference to his origins, see above!! *
I must just confess to going into overdrive at Michaels in New England, several of them actually, and one thing I did buy was polymer clays. I contacted Dee to ask for the best colours as I didn't have her book with me and soon managed to find the right suff, some of which I'm not sure I can't find over here anyway. It's quite a bit cheaper because of the tax differences but I didn't think of how it would all scan going through the airport. Anyway picture a rather large selection of metal findings and Tim Holtz items and quite a few large blocks of a dense plastic type material in an x-ray. I did have a polite slip of paper in amongst it all when we arrived home. Luckily I had packed sensibly and, other than a few socks, underwear was not present!
