WIP Wednesday: Skinner Blend Madness

The Week of the Skinner Blend
This week has been a very busy week in my studio, with Spring on the way I have been eager to start creating flowers! And like many other things in my studio, when I get the urge to create something I just follow the creative streak until it dies down. (Not to mention that since my gardening skills are not that good.) So unlike my other WIP Wednesday posts, this post is about just one thing instead of all the things I’ve been doing.
Skinner Blend Magic
There’s something wonderful about a skinner blend. The way the clay comes to life, the way that it takes on a whole new characteristic, the way that I’m addicted to them. Are you addicted to Skinner Blends? I never used to be. In all honesty, I never used to like to “take the time” to make them. But the second part of that is because I’m a sculptor. I love to sculpt whimsical and cute things … you know, like Parker. And when I’m sculpting those cute and whimsical things, I rarely use a Skinner blend. But now that spring is here … it’s time to roll up my sleeves and dive into flowers!

Because of my recent obsession with flowers and spring, I will be listing many of these simple & elegant milefiori caned flower necklaces in my Etsy store. Be sure to check them out.
