I thought I'd show you my first try at carving clay with a rotary tool. I was inspired by some similar pieces by "Cat" Therien (The Bronze Tearoom) Plus, DH threatened to confiscate the rotary tool if I didn't use it, since it was a gift from him! LOL! Well, it was *great* fun! I thought at first I'd draw the design on so I'd have something to follow, but I threw caution to the wind and just went for it. So the swirls are not exactly a pattern. And it looks more like a Christmas ornament than a pendant. LOL!
Still, it was so much fun I can't wait to do more!
