Sunday is usually my play day with clay.
So, after going to my neighbor's and watering their plants,
I went upstairs and pulled out he clay.
I decided to practice with some religious art.
Oh, I also worked with wire a bit, too.
The Cross is always a religious symbol I love.
I added some texture and some silver leaf to the clay.
I like the wooden look, but I do need to add a patina.
I'll show these pieces after they are finished.
Here are some closeups of the texture in these crosses.
I used a strip tool to add the texture.
I tried different textures.
Which texture do you like best?
This heart symbolizes the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
It is influenced by Mexican artists.
Again, a patina is needed.
The roses on the edge of the heart are roses to represent
Mary, the Mother of God.
I made this cross from copper wire.
I think it needs more work, but I'm not sure what I will add.
