Polymer Clay Monthly Challenge – May :: Desafio Mensal – Maio

You may have noticed that last month there was no creature of the month for the PCMC 2013 group. However I am now returning to my normal routine (after a month full of training and family visits).

Because I have been keeping and eye on the mute swans since early May I thought it would make perfect sense to elect them as the creature of the month. It was really interesting to focus on texture instead of color to convey their lightness. It turned out simple and elegant at the same time. What do you think?

Talvez tenham reparado que no mês passado não houve criatura do mês para o grupo PCMC 2013. No entanto estou a voltar à minha rotina habitual (depois de um mês cheio de formação e visitas familiares).

Como tenho estado a acompanharos cisnes brancos desde o início de Maio achei que fazia todo o sentido elegê-los como criatura do mês. Foi muito interessante trabalhar a textura, em vez da cor, para fazer sobressair a graciosidade dos cisnes. O resultado é simples e elegante. O que acham?

Sketching the idea. I ended up not including the cygnets.
