I cannot seem to stop messing with clay, can’t stop wanting to perfect a hedgehog cane. The goofy thing is that last night’s attempt ended up looking like a hedgehog and a sea monkey had a baby. Oh well, I kind of dig it.
The top cane uses the hedgehogs I made a few weeks ago. I like them better when they’re smaller. They look a little less like Lambchop.
I had vision of sitting down last Sunday and writing a few entries–or photo captions if the truth be told. The flesh is willing, etc. Now, a week later, it’s past time to get to bed so that I can get a decent amount of sleep and still no entries.
In all fairness, I had my Hoosier niece here, hosted a birthday party for a friend and attended my first CHA. (So hoping that it wasn’t my last.) All of those things likely deserve their own entries–or at least some words– but all I want to do is play with polymer clay and pretend my other obligations don’t exist.
These two beads-to-be are my first attempts at hedgehog canes. I know where I went wrong in both, but all in all they’re not too shabby. I will make another attempt, hopefully successful, and then try to figure out how to make a squid cane.
But for now, sleep.
