So following my previous blog entry, by strategically placing some filigree over the cracks “Space Rock” is now “Space Rock Creature”.

My new experiment was to cover extruded sticks of polymer clay with some floral paper and then cover that with a thin layer of transparent and white lace cane (viewing the garden through lace curtains was inspiration). So far I like the results, but one stick cracked and the other did not (however I am not sure what made the difference since I baked them together).
