Wiggly Pendant

I've been having a play today with something new, using FP, hammered silver wire and a glass nugget. I'm not entirely happy with it, but I need to do some more playing as the droplets at the end of the wires aren't quite right.

Funky Wonky Clocks

Ok, so this is something other than Friendly Plastic that I make, but .... it does have some Friendly Plastic on it, it wouldn't be the same without it! Each clock is hand sculpted from scratch from a modelling compound called Sculptamold (clay, papier mache & plaster) and I call this series 'Space in Time'.

Friendly Plastic is Back!

Most of you already know that Amaco have relaunched Friendly Plastic and some new (and old) colours will be coming out soon! There's a yahoo group for FP enthusiasts (see further down the page on the right). Linda Peterson has kindly setup an FP blog that both Linda and Jana will be imparting their wonderful knowledge. I've put the blogs/website links below and also permanently further down the page on the right.

Aerial House Pix

I know some of you have already seen these, but I've pulled everything from the Silkychickendesigns.com.au website and am putting it on here now as it's easier.

We're the house with the blue/grey roof btw!

This is the day we moved in, so no furniture, not so tidy now! The lounge/diner/kitchen are all one area and because of the expanse of glass it's like being in a hot house, so we had to put air con in.

View from the front verandah with low cloud (we're approx. 1200m above sea level here).

A few more pieces ......

The first two pieces are the back and front of the same piece, using Liz Welch's oooooooze technique with a sugarcraft cutter and angelina fibres.  The heart is just angelina fibres with an outline of gold/black FP.
