|Sculpted Polymer Fish Base|
|"Martini Glass" Bowl|
So what do you do when you have some polymer clay and an empty martini glass? You whip up a water-inspired bowl and a couple of frolicking Pisces to hold it up.
If all goes well these two pieces are about to become one (hopefully) interesting miniature bowl. I "saw" the bowl in my head first. The theme for the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy's May Challenge, "Bowls and Vessels," probably had a little something to do with that.
I molded the bowl shape in a martini glass and created ocean color scheme with alcohol inks. Once I saw the bowl taking shape, the "ocean" called for some sea life so I sculpted some polymer fish to serve as the base. They'll get a hit or two of mica powder before I bake them.
