Christmas ornament

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.
