This past week I took some time away from my sculpting projects to make my mom a present.
She had wanted a revolving composter and I had drew a rough plan up but there was no way I had enough time to get it done.
So my next thought was why not make her something for her garden? She loves Roy Orbison's music so I wanted to create something in a musical theme. I decided on a garden stepping stone.
So I made a pair of Roy's trademark Wayfarer sunglasses, a guitar and musical notes from polymer clay. After baking them I painted them flat black and rubbed them down to give them faux pewter hi lites.
Then I filled a stepping stone mold with cement and set my polymer clay pieces into it. I was happy with the result and it was fun being creative outside of the usual materials I work with.
Now I just have to steer my mother to my blog so she can find this link to her favorite song: YouTube - Roy Orbison - In Dreams (Black & White Night) If you've never seen the concert "Roy Orbison and Friends a Black & White Night" it is well worth a look!
