Today has been a great day. A much, much needed day off with nothing planned.
It didn’t start too well, with the alarm going off at 6am. M got back to sleep pretty quickly, but I was wide awake, and only managed to drop off back to sleep much later, when M was just getting up!
But then, I lazed around in bed for a bit and watched the videos from Nancye Williams on making doll faces.
So, I thought I’d put it into practise! The red haired ‘lady’ is in paper clay, and the other two heads are in polymer clay.
I really, really like the finish of the polymer clay. It’s basic Fimo Soft, and even using the soft version required a lot of conditioning. However, once baked and painted in an off-white colour, it had a lovely texture.
I’ve glazed the right hand face with a spray on varnish, and again I like the finish. It’s almost like glazed porcelain.
