Clay Menagerie of Friends and Foes

SAMSUNG

My younger son will not be outdone by his sister!

He got into the polymer clay and sculpted, baked, and painted himself up a whole little zoo.

First up is a piranha.  Notice the bloodthirsty mouth.

Next is the shark.  We can tell it’s a shark because it has two dorsal fins.  Science, boys and girls!

Moving on into the movies, we have Jabba the Hut and his horrible pet, Salacious Crumb.  I love that little guy.  He’s so icky!

Here’s a big black spider.

A blue whale.  He really nailed the shape of the body, I think.

And now we get a little more personal.  Here’s Porky

…and Lucky!

The sculpture of Lucky just about started WWIII around here.  My older son spotted the baked-and-cooling duck and banged on it, breaking off the wings.  Not cool at all!  Negotiations ensued and a cease fire (and apology) were issued, and the last of the Sculpey was used to mend the duck.  A few more minutes in the oven and a cooldown under lock and key got everyone back on track.  I think it looks even nicer with the repairs, and it surely is more sturdy.  If the truth must be told (and it must!) the wings were already starting to crack off simply from their own weight before the hostilities.  Most importantly, the boys are back on the best of terms.
