Polymer Fun!!

Hi there,

I am really wanting to learn how to make gorgeous faeries, pixies and stuff like that, so I figure the only way to learn is to start playin!!

A couple of weeks ago I pulled out the polymer clay and decided I would attempt a Brian Froud pixie, the one I have tattooed on my tum..

For a first attempt he is okay, he looks a little evil but meh, never mind!!

Now I will try to figure out how to post a picture and we'll be rollin... ;-)

Sweet, it worked!!

Anywho, this is him..

My Second attempt was a bit tragic!

I was going great guns all day making a wire armature and polymer hands, feet and head for a pixie and it was looking good!! well it was looking ok for a second attempt.....

This is him before he went in the oven... All was going good at this stage and I was feeling excited about my little project..

Then Clutsville set in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I was taking it out of the oven I burnt myself on the dish and auto threw the friggin thing and broke the pixies ears off and busted his nose...

Now he looks more like Choppa!!!!


Oh well I'll dress him and put a hat on him and see how he goes... When he is finished I'll post a pic.

Well thats my Polymer rant for the moment... I will see if my mum will let me post some pics of her amazing works that one day hopefully I may be able to come artistically close to..

My First Post

Well this is my first attempt at a Blog, so if its crappy, stiff, I'm sure you'll get over it..! ;-)

I have always thought writing things and thoughts out can always be interpreted differently by people, so if ever anyone is confused about something I have written, please SPEAK UP because I am not the sort of person to intentionally offend people..

Well I suppose I should start with me...

I'm a mum to 2 beautiful kids, a girl who is 7 years and a boy who is 18 months, they are my life..
I have an amazing partner and I adore him, he is totally crazy and I love it!!

I love doing crafty stuff, my mother is amazing with what she creates and I am hoping she retires early enough to teach me her magics..

I will post stuff on here that I have made and works in progress, I might even put my botches up for a laugh!!

Well that might do me for now, my boy will be waking up soon and I should be doing housework!!
