In my case: win valuable prizes!
I brought this Mardi Gras mask for Show And Tell at our March Meeting. I had made it to enter a mask decorating contest at work, and I won a CD Alarm clock for my trouble. Nice.
As Val pointed out to us, the UL has a nice matte finish that takes surface decoration with markers, inks etc very well. This one has a shiny finish because of the thin layer of translucent (loaded with glitter, of course) over top.
I chose the Ultralight to make the piece light enough to wear (required to win the contest) and to take advantage of the surface decoration properties (Prismacolor markers). So basically I substituted the UL for the white Sculpey III in the technique I learned from Kathleen Dustin. Love those Master Classes!
So this won a prize on Ash Wednesday and here we are about six weeks later. Happy Easter to those who celebrate, and I wish you all a Spring filled with new growth and opportuntities.
And what is Easter without eggs? Enjoy some of this eye candy from our friend Toni Ransfield: http://www.keepsakeeggs.com/.
