Thrown in at the deep end

Louisa (right) and Helen (left) have never clayed before so producing these pieces as a first effort is pretty awesome I reckon. We ran out of time to sand and polish the polymer parts of these pieces but armed with instructions and a quick demo and practice, their pieces will come up a treat. You should have seen their smiles when they left, they were pretty darned impressed with themselves and totally hooked on clay! Silver clay and polymer clay go so well together doncha think? Those delicious black to white skinner blended pieces are Louisa's pieces and Helens are the gorgeous bright tropical blended pieces. Well done ladies!

Lisa and Susan, thanks so much for your feedback. I'm so glad you said that because that's exactly the response I was hoping for. It just goes to show you what IS posssible when you lift the bar a bit. Ofcourse, first timers getting those kinds of results is possible only in small initmate groups like these. Step by step, the pieces came together really well.
Throwing them in at the deep end certainly makes em swim eh!
