Some MORE Mud Heads.....

I still am not sure what I am going to do with these fun little heads, but I am having so much fun playing with making them (and that is what matters, right??)
So here are my new ones....... He was made of black clay and then used the metallic alcohol ink and it made this wonderful metal look to him. This ink acts different than the others, it seems to be thicker and the metallic sits in the ink and swirls around (doesn't dry as fast) so being that I am impatient I hit it with the heat gun and that seemed to work just fine. I like him, but anything metallic and I like it :) He was warm (about 15 min. out of the oven) when I put the ink on.





Next is one that I made with translucent premo clay and then piping hot from the oven hit with reds and orange ink and let me warn you about this one...THE INK SPLATTERS OFF...almost as if it is boiling instantly and hit my leg, pants and don't tell my hubby but the floor (Shhhh)! But what turned out was really neat..... This little one looks just like glass/plastic. I took another photo up to my window, I hope one of them will show you what he really looks like..... I think that one does a good job!! He would be really cool to try to make him into a window hanging. I am going to play around more with this technique but next time I will use more protection :) I might try to paint his face so that it pops more, but wow I like what happened!!

So until next time...THANKS for reading!!!

The mud head looks really good. I love the rustic feel of the first one. It looks like it was made of stone.

The Seven Clans

Forrest Clan
They are known to be laid back but territorial of their Forrest. They have developed a game like tag, which they enjoy playing alot. When not playing they will sit in the trees and just watch everything else that is going on around them.

Water Clan
They are known to be playful and very intelligent although they like to pull pranks on the other clans. The Water Clan loves to play with all of the other clans although the Fire Clan does not like them much. Ironically most of the Water Clan can't swim very well.

Earth Clan
They are known to be a wise, kind and caring clan. Earth Dragons will do anything to help any other creature. They are one of the oldest clans and have the name "The Healers".

Fire Clan
They are known as the "Bad Boys" of the clans. Fire Clan likes to push the limits and does not like to take advice from any other dragons. They are known trouble makers.

Sky Clan
They are known to have a in-charge personality and have been labeled as snobbish. They like to float around with an "I don't care" attitude. They do seem to be a kind clan when needed, although they tend to only hang out with other Sky Clan.

Celestial Clan
They are a very majestic clan and they are the oldest clan known. They are said to have mystical powers. The Celestial Clan are mentors to all other clans but they have trouble with the Fire Clan.

Gems Clan
Not much is known about them for they are a mysterious and shy clan. They will hide from any who come near, although they seem to be very friendly. There is a myth that anyone that comes upon one will be granted the "Luck of the Dragon"




Elemental Buddies

Elemental Buddies are little creatures that live within the Forrest with the Dragons. Sometimes they are what we would consider as normal animals (such as turtle, lizards, birds, etc.) and sometimes they are exotic and unusual creatures. They all have their own story and they are all still Elemental!!

**What ELSE lives in the forrest???

**PEBBLEONIANs...They are the "listeners" of the Elemental Forrest. Only the best of the best little pebbles are choosen to grow into a Pebbleonian. They live along the mountain range on the edge of the Forrest, and it is said that when any Elemental Forrest critters needs a friend just to listen to them, they would travel to the Pebbleonians. They are old (in human terms) and very wise, but they don't have much to say, they just listen.

**CHERPELLs...A small bird like critter with a very long feather tail (at least it is long for their body size). They have a small golden pad like foot that they can hop with.

**TROLLGONs...Trollish dragonish like critters that enjoy just curling around a tree (although they do OK in the cages also) and just watching what you are doing.

**SNETTLEs...Very small snail like creatures, who make very good pets (for children and adults - great at work). They are easy to care for a little food, water and love and they are good to go. They very much just want a home.

**BOOBALINGs...Small crab like critters that enjoy crawling around, they do need to be caged or you may never see them again. Very curious little ones.

**TRUPHELLs....These exotic little creatures boing about the forrest floor following their snout in search of delicious morsels. They don't seem to be the smartest or most graceful of critters, but they are very amusing to sit around and watch.

**TWEERBs....These happy little turtle like creatures are slow moving, kinda clumsy critters. Who like to hang out in groups for they are very social.Tweerbs make great friends with any other Elemental Buddies.

**MUD HEADs... is the original dwellers of the forrest. They were stumbled upon not to long ago, so not much is known about the tribe. Information will be giving as it is discovered.
