Flower Ornaments

Hehehe :D I know, I know, but I couldn't help. Seem that I can't just keep my hands away from the clay that long. Finally, I got back to my clay stuff. *blush* Only this time it was not cake or bakery.

I like tiny flowers in a glass jar. I found that it gives me an impression of a private 'small world' kind of feeling. I don't know if any of you feel the same way. Well, it's as if I can keep a short period of time I like in there. ;)

I've made some flower stuff, ornaments, tiny 3-D flower framed 'picture', bottled flower, etc. It was fun with good, warm feelings while making them and I love all of them. :)

Time In A Bottle

Another sand clay items I've made. I named this one 'time in a bottle'. The bottled flowers are together with sand clay lid.

I'm getting ready for my vacation. Woo Hooooo! I'm now on my miniature break - only lazy around, eat and sleep. :P I try to put miniature things aside until I'm back with new things in my head. :)

It's also difficult not to go online as often as I used to do (yes, I know I'm addicted). lol I'm planning to get back to my wood work, crochet and paper craft things even if my wood work doesn't seem to go anywhere, but it's fun and I can't just stay away from it once I've 'chance'. ;) Oh, I hope it will be better once I 'grow up' enough. :D

My Sand Clay

After all from my new clay play experiment, I made a fridge magnet using my own sand clay recipe. I think the result came out quite good.

Like many other who 'play' with clay and experiment on their own clay, the recipes available online are great guideline to start with. I did not follow strictly with the amount/quantity of each ingredient. I just adjust the ingredient until I got clay texture I like. :D

On this experiment, I tried the fine sand instead of cornstarch and 'played around' a bit. The dried sand clay gives nice color with 'rough' texture appearance, but the real texture is nice and fine. I also love the color of the clay. :)
