Today, we had another Clay Play Day. The same people were there, my sister, Gail, our friend Reni, and our Mom. We had another busy, long, but educational and fun day. I keep telling them, I'm trying to teach you techniques, not just projects, although we do projects as part of our techniques.
I have to share with you, the most hilarious part of this was watching Reni and Gail on their way to the car at the end of the day "using" their lights to light the way to the car and singing "This Little Light of Mine" at the top of their lungs. It's a good thing we live in the middle of a cornfield, LOL
Then, we went and had a delicious lunch of Taco's, with all the trimmings, and fruit for dessert (along with some new recipe Chocolate Chip cookies Mom brought. They have a box of instant vanilla pudding in them). Everybody else said the cookies were delicious, but I didn't have any, as I don't do nuts in cookies, I'm allergic to pudding and (I know I'm weird, but) I don't like chocolate chips or chocolate chip cookies. But I still appreciate Mom's contribution, Thanks, Mom.
After our delicious lunch, we made some translucent flower canes from Marie's tutorial on her blog, Art From My Heart. We deliberately made different colors so we could use them for our final project for the day. Gail made orange and blue, Reni made turquoise and violet, and I made fushia and purple, and then I added a yellow, since I think we need yellow for a full set of flowers, LOL.
Zuleykha's Polymer Clay. These were quite fun and challenging to make, as the clay kept trying to pull away from the charm frames. We succeeded, though:
So, another fun Clay Play Day, is past and gone (except I still have to cure the charms, LOL). Gail, Reni, and Mom are all safely home, Mr. C just got home from work and has the next two days off, HOORAY!!!
So, with two last pictures of Gail and Reni working hard, I'll close for tonight and "talk to you" tomorrow.
