Mixed Media Explorations Workshop Week 2
So this week on the Artist's Circle, we are doing the air dry clay embellishments with Crayola's Model Magic(TM). These are so much fun. I had been dabbling a little bit with polymer clay embellishments, but the Model Magic is so much easier to work with and color, and I worry with the polymer clay about the toxicity. These are the first batch. I think that I will paint the next batch differently. On these I did watercolor, then Lumiere with Pearl Ex powders mixed in, then Rub-n-Buff gold on top. I think that I could skip the Lumiere.
I have to hide my Model Magic from my 5-year old daughter. She saw the package on the table, and got all excited to "do clay". I told her that this was Mommy's special art clay, and that she could use her Play Doh. She said, "that's for kids--it says Crayola on it!" Busted. Oh she is too smart for her own good. So now I have to hide the package, and do it at night after she goes to bed.
