Koala

in #theterminal2 months ago

I had been struggling to make something with airclay for the past few days. Unfortunately, nothing worked- so I went back to polymer clay.

I want to celebrate my life with these pieces. Finally, there is a clear pathway for me and, that meant, I am starting to settle down in Australia. I did know from the beginning that I will be doing that.Its just that my mind is still processing everything.

One of the most beloved Australian animal that I came to personally love is the Koala. In fact, I am even considering to adopt one. NO. I am not going to get one as a pet but simply pay an adoption fee for a year to foster a koala in the wild-or in a zoo or a hospital- its offered by an organization here- more on that later!

I believe that everyone has the right to life and, to have whatever help or assistance they needed to have a pain free, comfortable and happy life.

I started the pieces with orange balls.

I made a hole on the center with a ball tool.

And started making the "hands."

To make the pumpkin top, I started with a round piece of clay.

Done.

I initially wanted a grey koala but being me, I decided to celebrate life to the fullest so, here are some different colored ones. They are not yet baked so I had them placed in an improvised sheet (just a cardboard wrapped in a baking sheet).

I hope you guys like this. I certainly am very happy with the way they turned up.

He turned out very cute! Nice.

I think this is a very cool thing because people who get into this probably will want to make sure the animal they've fostered is getting good care.

They do and, I do not take this lightly. I have one specific organization in mind but, I wanted to research it further. In case its one of those 'cashing in the Koalas gig."

Glad you exist!

They look awesome! Very cute and charming. And quite funny, too! Excellent work! 🤗

thanks
