Each new project is another lesson learned. I appreciate the challenges this ornament project brought; they pushed me far beyond my comfort zone. I learned I can work under the pressure of unexpected deadlines, though I need to be more efficient with my time. I need to hone my skills for sculpting teeny faces. Practicing on 3 inches of clay is not the same as a 3/4 inch ball. Same goes for teeny hands — ow. Magnifying glasses are required. And smoothing? Egads, polymer clay is fussy!
Still, I hope her new owner enjoys her.
