"Art Is" class photos and a late start to Halloween!
PUMPKIN HATS made from a marshmallowy bakeable "secret" clay..see below
So a couple of photos of my paperclay doll and embellishing workshop at Art is....This was just a "thrilling" class....everyone worked hard for two solid days...the class was filled with amazing mixed media and doll artists ......and a very talented doll Artist helper, Heather Brauner ........Missy Munroe is not in any of the pics as she left a day early, Sorry Missy!!!
Now on to Halloween....not much time.... no more lolligagging.......but two Pumpkin Girls have been started! My trade this year was a mold and instruction for creating these funky little pumpkins!
The Mold....Amazingly...I found in the Dollar store!!!! An Ice cube tray!!! Wow....best find yet!!! when I bent the tray in half...the stems ended up going in the same direction, creating a 3d pumkin mold. I used a pretty cool clay that i had bought a year ago .... I hated it so I so i tossed it aside. surprisingly it never hardened even though I didnt cover it....what the ???? well I finally read the directions...and what I thought was a marshmallowy air dry clay...is actually a clay THAT MUST BE BAKED....! WOW...IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY IN THE MOLD AND BAKED SMOOTH AND LIGHT!!! hooray FOR "PLUFFY".... IN THE KIDS CLAY AT MICHAELS!!!! HAHAH
