I had some green and white swirled clay left over from a while ago when I made my mom a Venus figure, so I figured I would use some of that up first. I made an attempt to make some different shapes.
I then made some with a blue and white barber-poled together.
this one got a little burnt but not too bad
This one was so tiny it got burnt badly. You can see the brown/purple color towards the bottom, yep, burnt.
This was a venture to see if something could work. I am going to make Justice an owl sweater and was thinking maybe I could make my own buttons to go with it, maybe a J on them. We shall see, need to get better at this before that will work.
Lastly, I decided I really wanted to use up the rest of the green and white swirled, so I decided to make more of a pendant size Venus figure. She didn't turn out quite as well as I would have hoped, but since it was my first time making one this small and I didn't have any Q-Tips available, I will cut myself some slack.
I placed holes in her head to hang her.
This is the first time I used the little oven my mom sent me when she stopped doing clay. It worked great.
