A fashionably late bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge today, using the theme I chose at the weekend; Plastic fantastic.
I picked that at random, thinking the ubiquitous hydrocarbon came in such a variety of forms and colours that I couldn’t fail to find a suitable subject. And it was the wording of the prompt itself which gave me my own inspiration, when I re-read it and saw “polymer”.
Well, it just so happens that Audrey has become particularly creative with sculpture recently, using a brightly coloured and malleable, oven-baked polymer modelling clay.
A couple of weeks ago, she and I made a display shelf for her creations, which we decorated with some sparkly plastic sticky tape, I used some of that for a makeshift studio and did a plastic fantastic photo shoot.
There is a Loch Ness monster, rising from the deep, towering over a rowing boat on an island…
….a cup and saucer, complete with a snack of jellybeans and an iced donut with sprinkles…
…a chicken, a pig, some cheerful-looking fruit and a very grumpy jellyfish…
…a glittery caterpillar…
…a couple of aliens and a unicorn horn…
…and a rogues gallery of canine heads.
