Santa Christmas Ornament

Apr 16th, 2008No Comments

I just had to put this on my blog.  I made this about 2 years ago, and gave it to my brothers family.  I kept saying…I’ll make more…..yeah, right….well, I am glad I took pictures.  They are fairly easy to do.  I actually ‘borrowed’ the idea from ?? somebody who posted a picture on the web, and just had to try it.  It turned out a bit different than the original I saw, which always happens when people work with polymer clay.  Your own personality comes out in the piece.  Let’s see….my own personality…..If I go by this piece, I am non expressive, stone face and have a shiny nose.  Oh well.  If you make one, make sure you put clay at the back….as part of the hat, around the top of the shell…..(see this picture.)…… I painted the shell, since it wasn’t white enough for a beard, for my taste.  At this time I think I covered the whole piece with some super acrylic floor wax …thats why it is so ‘durned’ shiney!  Let me know if you have trouble seeing these pictures that I post.  I will soon be using a different method of showing the pictures.
