This is a cute Christmas ornament that Michelle made for our friend Mindy. The ornament is polymer clay – a mix of Premo and Kato Polyclay, and it is a fish that Michelle made the mold for.
The fish has a very cute hat – making her, in my mind at least, a clown fish. She has the cutest lips and is oiled as is our habit lately with burnt umber oil paint to give her a wonderful patina. The molded piece has an uneven texture so she looks almost like she is hewn from stone. She has a great new home on a Christmas/Hanukkah tree alongside a host of other eclectic ornaments.

Ponsawan Sila and her daughter Ada are traveling a long and expensive road. Ada was injured in a car accident in 2008 while on her way to pick up a friend of hers who was drunk. On her way there her car was hit by a drunk driver. Read her blog if you feel like being inspired. http://dearada.blogspot.com/
Ada is lucky to be alive but suffers severe brain damage and now lives at home with her family. She makes progress every day, and to keep the progress going money is needed. The polymer clay community donated items to help raise money. And I’m talking the INTERNATIONAL polymer clay community! Pieces from all over the world are being auctioned off on Ebay over the next few weeks. Go to http://www.ebay.com/
and put “benefit Ada” in a find box.
This week what I sent in is up for auction (the photo is what’s up for auction) and I’m hoping mighty hard that it will help raise some needed funds. http://tinyurl.com/y8fz3bq
Also look for pieces by Kim Cavender, Ann Stankiewicz, Deborah Raita and E. Rumsey Bellenot.
