I’ve had fun this weekend working in my garden. I flat wore myself out yesterday. I got up early and mowed and picked beans and 2 cucumbers, got the yard watered in the back and the flower beds watered in the front. I went to the farmers market where my favorite veggie booth had yellow squash and zucchini! I also got my first beans of the season… had to get some since my bushes are only producing a small hand full every couple of days right now. After the farmers market, I headed to Round Rock Market Days where I got myself a very nice present. It won’t be unveiled for a couple of months though, because it has to wait for my back patio redo.
Anyway, today I slept late after a late night thunderstorm and rain into the early morning. I have been toying with an idea, possibly for my table favor dolls for All Dolls Are Art 2012. I finally tried it out this afternoon.
Meet the snail! I sculpted him out of paper clay this evening over tin foil.
Isn’t this a great face?
This is my butterfly I was working on and have set aside as I don’t know how I want to paint it yet.
I have also been playing with faces. I want some flat faces I can mold, which I decided I was going to do with these today. I read on Fran’s Blog how she molded a less than perfect face and used the mold to create another face which she added clay too and remolded. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find my mold material. I know I saw it in the last few days, but I’ve moved it and can’t remember where. Oh well.
