I love reading motivational books. And I believe that if you truly believe in something and you put all your energy into it, taking meaningful action, you will achieve it. And I also believe that time is precious, because it is limited so it is very important what you do with it.
Materials and tools used:
White Fimo Professional Polymer Clay, a pasta machine, a silicone mold, pastels and mica powders, liquid Fimo, a texture plate and varnish.
I have prepared the polymer clay and rolled it through the pasta machine (15-20 times). I have used the silicone mold to get the owl imprint.
I have cut the inside part.
I have put the clock in, pressed the clay to the metal frame, making sure that the clock button (allowing to set the time) was not trapped in the clay. I have cut it all around using the guiding lines left by the mold.
I have prepared a sheet of polymer clay that I have imprinted with the texture sheet.
I have turned this sheet on the other side and I have placed the owl on top of it. I have used Liquid Fimo for a better bond. I have also pressed well the two parts (the owl and the back) together. I have cut again around the owl.
I have made some indentations on the margins to have a nice pattern.
I started coloring with green pastels.
Then I have added also mica powders.
I have put it in the oven (the clock did not suffer any damage) and then I have applied two layers of varnish.
P.S. Finally I had to admit to myself that I am rather a morning person in the present. I concentrate better in the morning, I express myself better (so I decided to write my posts in the morning). When I was working as a translator, I did my translations during the night and at that time, I functioned better during the night. Our rhythm changes, yet sometimes we refuse to change with it.
Thank you for being here for me and reading my posts!
