A week ago I thought skiving meant to waste time .... well it surprised me to learn it was the term used for thinning leather ....I have been doing this by hand with a blade and it is very time consuming but the results are worth it :) Im learning to make shoes is a weeks work....

strawberries are tiny !

I made some strawberries for mt store then made a strawberry plant from polymer clay .Also for my store I made eggs and am making egg cartons from air dry clay made from a mix of paper pulp and pva glue , it was hard to figure out how much shrinkage there would be but Im pretty pleased with the results.

the upside down carton hasnt fully shrunk yet but when dry will be the same size as the others :)
