Clay Menagerie

You may remember the beginnings of this project way back here. What is it for, you may ask? Well, I’m not quite sure yet. Right now I’m just enjoying working. That 4 1/2 pounds of modeling clay was the best craft purchase, ever.

This may be a little premature to show these, but I can shake this ominous clay lion feeling (especially after I found half of my animals with severe puncture wounds inflicted by some helpful little cousins), so here we go.

This one isn’t finished yet. I started all my pieces as just clay, but they clay was too pliable, and they wouldn’t stand up, so I had to go back and add a skeleton for each figure.
I can’t help but smile as I look at this picture, it makes me think of a little animal council. I want to try playing around with stacking these. We’ll see what comes out of this. Who knows.

Have a great weekend!

New Medium: Modeling Clay**

(**Modeling clay was actually one of my earliest and most favorite creative mediums as a child, and now it’s finally making and appearance here. Welcome my sticky, greasy old friend.)

What do a yak and a newt have in common? I’m sure there is some appropriate scientific answer, but for now, I’ll just leave this question for you to ponder.

Happy Monday!
