Serious Studio Time

playing with ideas, originally uploaded by Roberta Warshaw.
It has been really nice to be able to go into my studio every day. I have even been losing track of time. Amazing. Each day builds upon the previous days work. This is how art happens. It is something I hadn't been able to do until now. I feel like I died and went to heaven.

As far as the polymer clay goes, there is a huge learning curve for me. I am surprised actually. With metal clay, you don't worry about color. It is kind of like working in black and white. But with polymer clay, you have to think about color or lack of it, along with texture and pattern. it is a lot really. But I am game. I am quite challenged by it.
I made some domed beads with the hope of turning them into lentil beads but it didn't quite work out the way I had envisioned.

Well, that is what tomorrow is for.

Plus I had better get busy finishing up my April BJP. I have been sidetracked with the clay. Well, I can think of worse things to sidetrack me.

Isn't it wonderful?? Polymer clay is on my list of things to explore more this year. Glad to see you're having fun with it!
