A week ago, I taught my first workshop on making 3-D sea turtles. Following some basic structure directions, each person made their own personal turtle. Participants used a variety of polymer clay colors for the base, and pastel chalks were used to colorize the turtles. One turtle even ended up sporting a shell made from a design cane. Each sea turtle had his or her own personality. When we were finished, we set the turtles on a picture of acrylics and resin. They looked like they were swimming in the sea. Here are our turtles.
Before I could teach the class, I had to make some turtles of my own. Here are the 3 turtles I made. I love the expressions on their faces and their bright, shiny eyes.
