Santa Christmas Ornament
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.
