I added a polymer clay gecko to this old vase. I had this plain vase 16 or so years ago, but it cracked in the move from Chicago to Arizona in 2002. I warmed up some polymer clay and filled in the crack from the inside to the outside and then "finger painted" with the polymer clay. Applying it in layers and pulling it with my fingers and "smudging" it into the ceramic vase's surface. Just like finger painting; it was really fun (click HERE). I was aiming for an abstract cactus and really liked the way it turned out. But, over time, I have wanted to do something else with it. One of the advantages to polymer clay is the ability to change (add to) a finished piece even after many years. The little gecko adds just the right amount of dimension I was looking for. So, for now it is going to stick around for a little while more.
