I’d post more but my puppy won’t let me.

No really, I try to blog and my puppy puts his head on my hands, and uses his power of cute to undercut my efforts. Today I’ll show him though, I’ve got my wrist under his head and that leaves my fingers free to move! The Power! The Glorious Power!

Anyhow, I’ve got some creatures out of the kiln. Turns out that dark body reclaim turns a dark chocolate in the kilns. OMFG! Yes! I’m just so used to clay bodies getting Lighter as they fire, I was shocked. Pleasantly shocked Its perfect. Unfortunately, I’ve only so much of that body, so I am going to focus it on the oily sea star wall.

I should upload pictures, and I will. Just as soon as I get done making the tentacles. I’m trying to fuse the delrin shavings I got from the dumpster at work but it turns out that delrin and the lubricant used while shaving burn very easily.* I got something yesterday, but it was frustrating as hell with lots of toxic smells.

Today, I have a new plan that is so clever you could shove it in a bag and call it a weasel: I’m getting a cheep hair culler (or straightener, which would be better) and using that to press the ends of the delrin tentacles together. MWA HA HA HA HA HA!

Still, I got my first oil jelly done and it looks AWESOME! I can’t wait to get them all together. đŸ˜€

*note to self: If building catches on fire, stay the hell away from the machines.
