Projects: Clay and Link to My Guest Tutorial
Now that my grades are turned in it is officially summer. While I am still working, preparing for a fall semester with a newborn, I decided that I need a little crafting time. So yesterday while Cordelia took her afternoon nap I broke out the polymer clay and got to work. I was totally inspired by the book Microcrafts in which they show how to make the lollipop and cupcake, but I didn't really follow their directions. I just looked at the picture and came up with my own thing.

Inspired by the success of the lollipop and cupcake designs I began to wonder what other small food I could make. So I made a couple of ice cream cones and then watermelon.
Ice cream cones, don't worry they are soy ice cream cones (wink)
Adorable watermelon slices
Finally I made some roses to finish off the crafting.

The whole she-bang on display.
Also, I have a lot of people wonder how I make clay roses and quite frankly it couldn't be easier. Hope on over to Kirsten's Kitchen for a look at my guest tutorial where I detail how to make clay roses.
