Birds of a Feather

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.

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.

Day 2

We got out the polymer clay and my toaster oven and made heads.

Blind Date

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.

Frog ready for date

Blind Date – Imagine him showing up at your front door.

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.
