Clay Dinosaurs

I finally used the last of my polymer clay. If you’ve never used it, polymer clay is clay that usually comes in small blocks and can be baked in a kitchen oven. I’ve only used it a couple of times, I don’t usually work with clay, nor do I have any clay tools, and I’m not really good at it. But I made some tiny dinosaurs and they are so cute.

I modeled the clay with just my fingers to make a Spinosaurus, Brontosaurus, Tyrannosaurs, and Triceratops. I baked them on their sides, which was a mistake (my triceratops stands a little crooked when it’s standing at all). Then I painted them with a mix of metallic and regular acrylic paints. They’re wobbly, and lumpy, and streaked with brush strokes, but I like how they turned out.

This might be the last of my adventures in clay, at least for a long while, but tiny dinosaurs is a good way to end.
