Do we see a trend? (Hint: Eggs & sculpey)

I was productive! I made sculpey-thingies! Oh, and I did some homework, wrote a paper, blahblahblah. We know what's important.

Over the weekend I made:
a duck (approx 1/4" long)
a penguin (approx 1/4" tall)
an oven mitt (approx 1/2" long)
Batman, I-Love-Egg style (approx 1" tall)
Robin egg (approx 3/4" tall)

Photos have yet to be compiled, but here are a few:

^The Batman egg being threatened by a SD Storm Trooper.

And these are shots of the Robinegg. The one on the right gives you some sense of scale: he's sitting on a dime.

(The duck and penguin I made are about the same size the "R" logo on the Robinegg! They also look like they had an accident with some fireworks. I'll explain when I have photos... It makes sense, really.)

More fun with sculpey

It's a sleeping dragon. With his tail over his eyes. (It's about three-quarters of an inch tall and wide. Sits neatly on a penny.)
It was the same green used in the buckle text, and I had started it right after finishing the buckle. It was, however, 4am so I decided to stash the dragon and work on it later.

Then I finished it the following evening, and as I was setting out to bake it, the immortal word "Squid" struck.

Ten tentacles, 48 suckers. This little bugger is decked out, I tell you. (One inch tall, one and three-quarters inches at widest arm span.)

Yes, these were all made after the hour of midnight. Did you even need to ask?

[Addendum: The squid got upgraded.

Squid: Now with spoon and boat eating action! (That's a little paper boat in the squid's right 2nd front tentacle.)

Leather & Sculpey: So much cooler than presentations on Popper & Marx

Ha hah!

We have here a leather cuff with double straps & buckles. Heavy weight brown leather, harness grade. Also: shiny!

We also have a buckle. A SWASH buckle, no less.

These are what you get when I am awake at 3 am and hate the world.

Procrastination is the mother of all creation

As expected, in writing a paper I sidetracked in to creating things utterly unrelated, and voila: this.
