Hot off the painting table today. I have painted a fireman ornament that can be personalized to your needs. I wanted to paint mine in honor of those that lost their lives on 911. I am enjoying adding the clay for the hats on my newest ornaments. Nice addition, plus was the answer to my problem. $17.95 plus shipping in my Etsy shop.

One of my best friends' daughter is getting married next weekend and she is marrying a Marine so naturally I had to make her a gift of ornaments complete with the Marine groom, which he will be wearing the uniform to get hitched. I really struggled with making the hat. First I tried air dry clay as I didn't want to have to bake the bulb but it ended up cracking majorly. So I tried polymer clay and baked it on the bulb on very low heat and it worked beautifully. I am so excited this worked as I have two new designs I have painted that need hats that aren't made of fleece so I hope to get those finished in the next week or so. Stay tuned to those!
