This is gonna be a fun post :). Last year my in-laws, Thad, and I were all staying at the coast for a couple days. And because my mother-in-law is super awesome, she’d brought all kinds of goodies to play with, among which was molding clay. So while we watched Swiss Family Robinson (on VHS :)) I sculpted a couple little people, and my mother-in-law really liked them. She asked that, when I had some time, I make her some. So this past Mother's Day, I finally got to it, and I thought it would be fun to show you!
I got this clay at Michaels Craft Store, and it was great to work with. Easy to mold, and held detail well.
I stuck her in the oven for 45 minutes (15 minutes for every 1/4 inch of thickness at its thickest point) at 275 degrees F.
Packaged up for her new home :).
She came out quite lovely. Although... and maybe I’m the only one who sees this... but I think she bears an uncanny (unintentional) resemblance to Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard). In a pink wig.
Do you see it too??
