Polymer clay - Hei Tiki and crazy felt

Hei Tiki - the first man in Maori legend. It was made when I was practising felting that's why it includes felt!

Альбом: Polymer clay


Different authors keep saying that polymer clay and felt go together quite well. I fully agree! Besides, the felting process itself is very pleasant. Of course, I woudln't even think of felting something as big as plaid - not for the world! - but when it comes to small things it makes a huge difference and the pleasure is all yours.

Polymer clay - Manaia

For Maori the Manaia is the carrier of supernatural powers- it is the spititual guardian which protects the wearer from evil.
I have a Manaia pendant which was bought in Auckland and I wear it quite often. There is something special about the form... They say Manaia provides protection everywhere - land, sea, and air, which makes it a handy thing for a traveller :)
