ot indep 784013 Independence and Ornament Thursday
The house is full of plaster hands in various positions and colours but my real hand is unstuck in time for this month’s Ornament Thursday!

This pendant is called Independence from Race and Religion. I’ve sculpted a woman’s face and used bits from Krafty Lady Art Moulds. Her cheeks and hair are from parts of a key and keyhole mould. Kristine, the Krafty Lady herself, has a quality product that is wonderful to use. I’ve not found a medium yet that can’t be used in her moulds… Friendly Plastic, Premo, Fimo and Kato clays, plaster, wax, Magic Mud, hot glue…. but I digress. (sorry)

Originally the woman in this pendant started as pink clay and African American features. I wanted to see what oil paint did to clay so now she’s nicely aged and has a lovely glow about her… but she’s not so pink. The reverse is backfilled with textured black clay (thanks Lynne!) and has a brass tube running down the length to hold her weight (thanks Tommie!)
