Turtles Galore!

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.
