I recently tried out a new medium, some Sculpey clay, and this Polaroid charm was the result. You can find full instructions at Dotcoms for Moms.
You may notice that the package of clay in the tutorial photograph is smashed, thanks to a tactical strike on Mara’s part. While shopping for clay at the craft store, I had Mara in my Babyhawk, placing her in prime position to grab the Sculpey out of my hands and aim it straight into her mouth. After pulling it and some slobber out, I turn around to find Dax with a clay package in his mouth. As I’m reprimanding him, boggled as to why my 4-year-old would be uncharacteristically mouthing random objects at the store and setting off all my germ alerts, I turn to see Kai with a clay package in HIS mouth. Classic monkey-see, monkey-do. I’m just glad we had the aisle to ourselves — no one to catch the frazzled mother hissing at her children to not eat the clay.
