At least they're a little better than the first batch.

So starting yesterday and all of today I've been working on oranges. These seem to be a standard thing to make out of clay. Well the first pair of oranges I made turned out beautifully. Nice orange translucent centers... The next batch made the same way turned out burnt looking... the horror.. hours of work destroyed in minutes... I can't understand why because I made these the same way as the first two. Anyway what did I do? I started over. Will upload final oranges soon.

I've been in a fall mood lately and thinking of some fall themes for necklaces. Anyway along the way I decided to make some nut charms. Here is an idea of my working process. The nuts were really time consuming. Everything from the sculpting to the painting took longer than I would want to admit. I couldn't get the base color right for the walnuts and then I had the problem of making them appear matte. Currently working on solving the walnut color issue... but pretty satisfied with the pecans!
