I found a few tutorials for polymer clay on the web, and had to try them out right away. The fun part is done – the mixing, the shaping, seeing how the pieces come out of the oven. Today was the not-fun part. Sanding, buffing, and varnishing. I know that practice will make perfect, but there’s got to be another way! Well, when everything’s dry, I’ll put up pictures.
OK, this would look a lot better on a skinny body, but I’m working on that right now. Don’t care. This was really fun. The Bog Coat was featured in Threads #87, I picked up the Revisions pattern just for some fun ideas. The pants are Lois Ericson’s “My Favorite Pants”. I made them a teensy bit snug because Weight Watchers is working for me now. The design has a drawstring waist, to it shouldn’t be difficult to keep wearing these 30 pounds from now.
