ClothPaper Scissors: My Article: Illustrative Clay Painting!

Does it get anybetter then this, being inside Cloth Paper Scissors, Nov./Dec. 2009 Issue? I am beyond excited, there is nothing more magical then seeing your works printed for all to see and be inspired by.
This publication has been one of my fave magazines for years, and is such an honor to be apart of this edition with so many other wonderful and talented artisans inside. I mean look at that cover, this artist is incredible, sooo cute and gets you in the Holiday spirit.
My article is entitled: Illustrative Clay Painting in which I have also included the recipes for 2 handmade clays that you can use in your paintings, for jewelry, sculpting, pressing into molds, etc.Finding ways to illustrate various storybook characters is a passion of mine, not too serious, not overdone, just something whimsical, fun and easy to do, with fast results. As an artist, I love projects which look amazing and are easy to do. This project is one of them, by incorporating a variety of supplies such as clay, felt, flocking, papers, glitters, jewels, you get a 3-d piece of art which not only tells a story, but can hang on your wall or sit on your shelf sharing that story.Lulu's Carnival! Finished!Original Piece
If you can't illustrate, these project can be created using copy right free clip art from companies like Dover Publications or from vintage silhouettes, or image transfers, which can easily be painted over or built upon w/the clay or felt.
