Little Wolf Little Wolf

So, this week has been kinda bleh. I went to the bank and a woman at the counter saw my father and brother and said to me after they left "Oh your son is so cute!" I was so shocked. How old did she think I was? Like, I get it is the times we live in now, but that is just so ODD! If he was my son, I would have had to have him when I was 13 or so! EWEWEWEWEWEW! 'O.o Aside from that vomit worthy weird experience, I have recently taken on making a Gloomy Bear for a friend of mine (whom I hardly see even though we go to the same school) as well as fixing a class mate's bracelet. She and another classmate of mine tried to fix the magnetic clasp of a bracelet by putting super glue on it, however, they ended up gluing the two magnets together. So I being the odd person I am took the bracelet and tried to get the two magnets apart. Nothing worked. So now I have a few options;

Option A: Run the clasp under water and see if that works.
Option B: Try and pry them apart using tools.
Option C: Combine both A and B.
Option D: Replace it. But that costs money.

I am leaning towards C. Anywho, moving on.

I have had a project on my desk that I have neglected to finish or even take a stab at since I came up with it. But today I did! (o * *)o
A while ago, while I was making my xmas wish list, I came across westernmountain's wonderful wolf ring. Gods, I wanted that thing so bad, but ended up not getting it because my parents had already bought me a laptop. Defiantly not complaining there. But me being the stubborn sort said that if I couldn't have that wolf ring, I'd make my own. So I grabbed my wolf statue and some spare polymer clay and made a mold.

It took me a while to figure out how to do it mostly because the clay refused to come out of it once I shoved it in. But bit by bit I pieced together a wolfy face! It's kinda demented looking, but I like it none the less. He's so odd he needs love!

I am thinking that I am going to be making many different colors (Hint: I'm thinking metalic blue, metalic red, white marble, cream 'n' black, and solid black?) of these and once I get wire, I'll make them into rings! WOOT! I am really enjoying working with polymer clay. There aren't as many limits to it as natural clay (though I like that too.) Well, that's all I have on that for today. Ado <3

P.S. I went out to dinner last night and the restaurant had the most awesome idea of using glass jars for cups, to stick to their country theme. So cute!

  1. Love the mason mugs. Reminds me of days as a kid when we sat on the porch drinking lemonade. Your wolf turned out great. i can see many color possibilities. Try a little fingernail polish remover and run a razor blade down between the magnets.. Might take the finish off the magnet too depending on what it is made of so try it in an Inconspicuous spot first!
