I am still playing with the possibilities of the poly clay as fabric. I know that somebody did a book on making shoes with poly. There is probably information about using it for other fabrics, but I am not looking for that info. I am just having a good time messing with it.
This morning I added a handle to the brown purse and then went on to experiment with gloves to go in the other one.
I had a slice of the second purse laying on the table. I rolled it out a bit thinner and cut two sides off. Then I cut one end of the black and white off. I folded it into a coin purse shape. Instant wallet. I cut out a glove shape from white clay and even put the little three line detail on the back that some gloves have. There is a thumb on the other side. Oops. Didn't think of that when I did it. It's not going to show unless the purse is turned the other way.
I got to thinking that some of the mirror beads, sliced and rolled very thin, might make nice silk scarves. I sliced and rolled. Then I went and found something to drape them over while baking.
Then I just fiddled with them until they looked natural.....to me anyway. I think that they might be interesting laying on a chair or over a hook if you draped them that way.
I cut little slits in the long ones for fringe. I think that you could add a real fabric fringe after they were baked. I will have to try that.
Tessie grabbed the square one. I am now trying to explain that, when baked, it will be hard and she won't be able to wear it....This is going to be a tough one. She wants to drape it around her neck.
I am thinking that this technique could be useful for making coats to hang on the hall tree or an apron or towel hanging on a peg in the kitchen. No fuss with all of the pinning and spraying that you have to do with the fabric kind.
I have three days to experiment if my mind doesn't wander.....It will. It always does.......
See you tomorrow.
