Rockin' On, With 85,000 Stitches To Go...
I wonder if Sculpey bought the rights to DAS? DAS is no longer to be found, but the Model air seems to be the same stuff. Works like a charm.
As you can see, I do put glue under it to make sure that it sticks to the surface. Some people don't. I would rather be safe than sorry.
My tools are the ones that you see in front. An old cut up credit card and a well worn stencil brush. That's all. No fancy sculpting tools.
I can't use the whole package of clay at one time, so I put it in a large, well sealed zip lock bag. See the wet paper towel next to the package? That's another piece of clay that I chopped off, but haven't used yet. The wet paper towel helps keep that piece from hardening and also keeps moisture in the bag for the other clay.
Anyway, I finished this one yesterday. I wasn't trying to get fancy with the copper wire. I just thought that it would last longer with some reinforcement on the handles. That was the only way I could think of to do it.
I am going to put a tag on it, saying that April and Seth go together like salt and pepper. Hey! That's all I could think of on short notice. They like odd ingredients for cooking. This is the first time I have ever seen Smoked Sea Salt. Sounds good to me.
April and Amare are on their way over, so I have to go.
See you tomorrow.
