The Pet and the Pet Owner

This is actually from a few weeks ago but I hadn’t gotten around to posting it. The girl likes to work with polymer clay on occasion. Usually I’m pretty strict about making a sketch first, otherwise she is apt to just cut it up into pieces and well, it’s not clay-dough. This time I didn’t ask her to sketch but we did discuss what she wanted to make. I helped make sure things were sturdy and fairly well attached but she did most of the work. I was amused to watch her put the legs on her cat just the same way she draws them, in a straight row instead of two by two!

The pet, as she referred to the cat she made.

And the pet owner, as she referred to the girl with blue hair. I made the feet so she would stand up on her own like the cat.

    Very cute!

    Hmm, I should do the sketch idea, too. Eleni loves to work with polymer clay and has been doing a lot of it lately.

    Those are wonderful. I am loving the idea that she has to sketch her idea first. That’s a great skill. jan
