I thought you might get a kick out of seeing the results of my very first attempt at sculpting. It's been almost 3 years now (WOW, time flies!!) since I bought my first polymer clay ("Super Sculpey") and attempted to make something with it. The only paints in the house were some enamel paints my husband had for model cars, planes, etc., so I used that. My husband wouldn't let me throw this horribly ugly green blob of a turtle away, but I'm kind of glad I didn't because he's my little reminder that there is hope that I can improve with practice and experimentation. And if anybody else ever feels frustrated with their creations, maybe looking at your first attempt will make you feel better too. Or you could just look at mine, LOL.
Notice the bizarre shape of it's shell and head.
Here's the bottom, LMAO! Look at how huge he is!
Why does he have one bulging eyeball??? Looks like a frickin' tumor or something.
