This past week I got together with a couple of friends to paint and play with polymer clay. Julie drove up from Brockville to stay with me for a few days. Margo is a neighbour here in Calabogie who joined us each day.
Margo doodled with pencil and coloured pencils .
Julie finished a watercolour she had brought with her and then switched to pastels to work on a Great Blue Heron we had seen earlier that day.
I worked in pastels on an Osprey that I had photographed a few weeks ago.
We got out the polymer clay and my toaster oven and made heads.
I’m in the process of making a soft sculpture frog. I haven’t got to the stage where there is anything interesting to show so I thought I would show you one I made a few years ago and sold.
I made the flower using free motion embroidery on water soluble stabilizer. His lace, at the neck and cuffs, was also made on water soluble stabilizer, using built-in sewing machine stitches. He has glass eyes and I made his shoes from polymer clay.
I am hoping that the new frog will be even more frog-like.
