It’s all in your head

I’ve missed a few of our polymer clay nightlights from a session with Leslie Blackford last week. This will give you an idea of the silly fun you can have with a glass votive, some transluscent clay, a small light bulb and a dash of imagination.

Playing like this is a great exercise and the results are often surprising. I had no idea that a strange Walter Cronkite lookalike lived in my head. Click to see a few more twinkling samples.

And here’s Judy Dunn’s.

        I think these lights are great although the pig is a bit scrary. Anyway what a wonderfull imagination.

          ROTFL! I was practicing face-sculpting once and the face that “happened” looked just like my father-in-law (think, ugly old man). LOL! Who knew I could sculpt him, and why would I want to?!

          I really love those twinkling samples. The animation is great! And really makes me want to try a nightlight, too!

            I love the little critters. Now I’m gonna have the song “Froggy Went a Courtin'” in my head the rest or the day.
