Starting a new sculpt





I'm starting a Christmas elf using the clay mix Dianne Keeler told us about, cernit, super sculpey and white classic fimo. I like the consistency, although it did take a little time to adjust to it. The baked clay has a very nice translucent appearance as you can see in the photo. Now I need to add some color and paint in the eyes.




On Saturday, I received the fleece I ordered from Patricia Keeley, Autumn Hills Woollens and Sheep Co. Gorgeous, blue faced Leicester......it's a soft white with beautiful curls. Patrica's fleece is great to work with, very clean and easy to comb out. It will make great hair for my elves and santas., take a look at this fleece I just washed.

Can you tell me if Diane Keeler makes a mix of those clays with equal amounts of all three? I know I'm commenting on a post that went up about 3 years ago, but I've been google searching for whatever Diane uses, and your blog entry came up. :) Thanks so much!
