More fun with polymer clay

These are made almost exclusively from sculpey..the flesh colored kind...and then painted...some need repair...they are very old ..well for sculpey...made about 20 years ago when i first discovered it after going to Christmas in the South. The kids and I had spent days making salt flour ornaments only to have them disintegrate in the attic over the summer...so I started making sculpey ornaments...which lead to sculpey santas..then i started selling sculpey objects like hotcakes and buying it by the 25 lb loads....

These are some of the first Santas I made....i think the green might be green sculpey III...all are made like the angel yesterday...a cone of sculpey decorated like a Santa...the taller ones are about 6 inches high. These used to sell for about $25.

These were also made about the same time...from Sculpey 3...tall Santa is about 8 inches tall and made from regular sculpey.

So I progressed to making dogs and cats and other animals...these sold like hot cakes at the Augusta Artists Exchange...from L-R Susie, The JR, Smokey the cat and Dear Charley The JR with their christmas finery on. Of course I made the two boys in the pictures, youngest son Drew and older son Ben:>

Then I got ambitious making TALL figures - 12 inches or so- remember I had 25 lb of sculpey in the freezer!! This is my favorite and I need to repair him..hes lost whatever was in his right hand...

The little boy and his bear....

A jolly fat Santa ready to make his rounds delivering presents
