Today’s project was a fun one, I made this little lizard guy. If you’d like to know how to make your own, I found the guidelines (not a complete tutorial) at the Polymer Clay Workshop website.
He’s covered with slices from a cane I made a while back from a kaleidoscope cane article in the Fall 2004 issue of Polymer Cafe. (That issue is sold out, but here’s a kaleidoscope cane tutorial on Polymer Clay Central.)
It took just as much time to get the toes right as it did to do everything else. I can’t tell you how helpful it was to have my magnifying lamp to do those tiny details. (We’ve used that light SO much in our household: to remove splinters, to read teeny tiny writing on bottles, for itty bitty repairs, it’s awesome.)
Here he is, slithering across my keyboard, just to give you an idea of the size. He’s about 3 1/2 inches long. This is definitely a technique I want to revisit, but with a cane made for the project.
Check back tomorrow to see the end of week 2 of my Make It In March Challenge.
