For some reason, she liked them and is paying me five bucks each to make polar bear ornaments for her friends. Seeing as they’re made out of Play-Doh, and ‘sculpted’ with a broken knitting needle, this seems more than reasonable. I’m almost finished with them:
Yes, that’s a hair dryer in the background. I use it as a kiln. It’s surprisingly effective. I coated them in metallic paint to keep the Play-Doh from cracking, and all I have left to do now is paint them. I’m out off the white matt paint I used for the other to, and since I can’t drive and a trip to the craft supply store is harder to come by that I’d like, I evaporated a watercolor tablet from an old chinese brush painting kit in a little jar of water, forming a weird clumpy paint. We’ll see how it works out.
