 This was another "throw away"vase I found.

My Mother had these really cool porcelain figurines, so I cheated and made a mold from air dry clay of the face. I wanted to make a "flower girl", so I added some flower petals and jewels to her hair, and came up with a pretty neat clay project.

This was just me goofing around. Using paper clips as armatures did an "okay" job, but getting the heavy pieces to stick mid air from a rock was like pulling hens teeth!
This piece isn't done yet. I haven't decided if I going to add color yet or not. I will be adding some english moss to the bare rock. If I can work out the mechanics a wee bit better, I may be onto something!!!
