Please tell me you have got started with a project and it sort of develops a life of it’s own! I just can’t be the only one to loose track of time while becoming so immersed in what I was doing. It felt super fantastic, the focus and clarity of what I was doing and where I wanted it to go. I hesitate to say “orgasmic”, but there I just did. Pardon me, but it is such a singular feeling and one you definitely want to repeat!
I was waiting for a mold to set up and found myself looking at the mold catalog again. I came across the mask mold and decided to cast it. The little flower imps were setting up nicely and the face mask had me thinking of something a little larger for my garden. When it strikes, I just go with it, lol.
As you can see, I tried a few attachments around the face but pulled them off. They just weren’t what I was looking for, didn’t feel right. Oh boy, then it hit, I knew! Back in the casting room, I pulled down what I needed and went to work. I could see it in my head, but needed to make the additions slowly and give the clay time to rest. If I didn’t give the damp clay enough time to rest and catch up with me, we would have a slumped ball of clay.
What a difference! She is coming along really nicely. A little more tweaking and we will be good to let dry very slowly. My affinity for pinecones and my love of the pine scent are coming to life in my Pinecone Nymph. She will look fantastic in my yard!
Here’s to letting yourself get “Carried Away”…… Cyn
