I always seem to work on these at night, when it's too warm in the kitchen (we don't have AC) and I have the oven on. I just sweat and am constantly putting these little figures in the freezer because they are getting to warm to work with. But, I prevailed. There are so many tutorials on you tube for making polymer clay succulents and cacti (who knew?) and I think I watched about 5 of them and then just mashed them together in my head. They were very fun to make. I need to make a display shelf. I do have people asking what I do with all these figures I have been making. Um, I look at them and play with them, I guess? They make me happy. I also tuck them in gifts for my friends and for the girls' friends.
I have been on a small sculpture kick for the last few months, although I did have a flurry of sewing last week. I have been making small paper-mache shrines, air-dry clay runes, and more small figures. I am now tempted to make a peg doll set of Penny Dreadful characters, like my Downton Abbey set.
