OK, I discovered paper clay and I can't stop! I loved it the minute I felt it in my hands. It is so soft and does just want you want it to. So, I guess since I was in bird mode already, I created these little sculptured birds. I decided they would be beautiful on a wedding cake topper. So, I created this wedding cake topper for the birds to sit and oogle at each other....and perhaps kiss. What do you think?
The only thing I don't like is that I used "triple thick" gloss glaze. I would the birds to have been less glossy now that I'm done. But, my husband says he thinks they look more like porcelain or ceramic with the gloss and he loves them. If you work with paper clay, can you tell me what kind of glaze works good to protect your work?
I have so many projects started that I am telling myself I have to finish before I start anything else. We will see how that goes. I have a little clay sculpture of a woman from the shoulders up that I'm scared to paint her face. I'm so afraid I will mess her up. I have a pair of funny birds (clay) I'm working on. (These were a project found on the paperclay site. Then, I have a new pattern I drew out for a much smaller fabric bird. Not to mention I have not finished my redecorating project~! Oh well. I just feel blessed that I get so much joy from these creative projects and sharing them with my blog friends. Like the saying at the bottom of my email..."All you need to be happy is someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for." Zig Ziggler (A wise man indeed). Hugs and sorry I'm always so wordy. I just have so much to say!!!
