So I got this idea to make my own statues for my altar. I found some oven bake clay at Wal-Mart for next to nothing. It's pretty easy to work with and doesn't take long to bake. But, as I discovered the hard way, you can't make it too thin or it will fall apart. LOL
They turned out more bowl-like than I had anticipated and I'm okay with that. I really didn't have any expectations in the first place. I just turned on some music and let my hands do what they wanted. So now I have two statues/offering dishes and I like them a lot; which is really all that matters right?
