Polymer Clay Magnet

I have been in love with polymer clay since a friend introduced me to it a couple of years ago. This is my first attempt at a human face. It is 1½ inches tall (about 4cm). The eyes are a little too big but I like them anyway. I also made them from polymer clay.
Like many women, she is having a bad hair day. A little hair product should fix that right up.

At the moment I am building an armature for a creature that has crept into my head demanding to be brought to life.

A little about me

I have studied art and crafts my entire life. I really don't have a favorite medium to work with because I love them all. For many years I did nothing but paint. My favorite mediums are acrylics and watercolor. For a while I was obsessed with quill pens & ink.
My husband introduced me to stained glass. I love working with glass but there is a LOT of scrap. I hate wasting anything so soon discovered mosaics. For about 10 years I rarely made anything but mosaics. In the past few years I have discovered that I really am happier not limiting myself to just that.

With the freedom of using different mediums came the ability to explore, learn and express myself more freely.

Preferring things that are one of a kind, I try to make things that are one of a kind. When I do reproduce something I incorporate subtle differences so that they are not exactly alike. Two roses on a vine are both similar but there are subtle differences that make each unique.
