Hi everyone! I'm getting caught up on my Christi Friesen inspired clay work for The Friesen Project. I had such fun making seahorses that I actually made two:
The seahorse on the left has a blue lace agate bead embellishment; the one on the right has a few beads, glass cubes & a metal springy bead. They each have a hole in the body for hanging that isn't visible from the front.
I also antiqued all the projects...including the sea turtle and the two starfish:
It seems much easier to add the patina and protective coat to all the projects at once since I pop them back in the (clay) oven at a lower temperature to seal the finish.
As much as I loved making the dragons, I love making the seahorses even more! I even decided to put a seahorse/starfish pair in my Etsy shop. Now I am off to complete the next project that I will (hopefully) show off on Friday!
