PMC clay – test 1 – Kitty Toes!

I took the plunge. After watching more than a few tutorial videos on working with the clay and how to fire, I made my first charm. Since it was just a test, and not something I was looking to list in my Shaded Lines Etsy store, I made something that I could keep and wear 🙂

Cat Toe prints

I’ve been fascinated with all the fingerprint and animal print items I’ve seen…and, if anyone knows me, they know that my cats are my kids! So I made tiny little toe prints from each of the kittens (4 yrs old now).

The charms are in the drying stage, so firing will come once I receive my firing brick in the mail (hurry it up USPS!)

Crossing my fingers that these work out….and that I don’t burn the house down!

About shadedlinescreations

I have been interested in the arts for longer than I can remember. I can’t dance, I can’t sing….so that just left creating something tangible and aesthetically pleasing. Having a bachelor’s in graphic communications, I’ve worked as a graphic designer or creative director for the past 10 years. I have now decided to branch out and embrace 3D design…something in college I completely didn’t understand and hated going to the class! However, rather than covering chairs in crayons or fabricating statues out of cardboard, I have chosen to create items that can be used and treasured for years to come. Each tile, coaster or piece that you see in the gallery or on my etsy store has been customized, and can even feature your own personal images if you so desire. So look around, get some ideas and let me take them to the next level by actually making them for you!
