What I can say is that it is a wonderful class!! I have just started making bases so it has helped a lot.
I was quite glad that I started making my mushroom instead of continuing on with my Autumn Fairy, because when I cleaned my doll oven the day before I must have knocked the dial up a bit, I had it was set at the perfect temp for the clay I use and well as you can guess my mushroom was well done. Oddly enough it browned quite well, around the gills and the very bottom. Its was a good reminder to always check the temp.
My mushroom after it has been baked. I spend quite a bit of time working on the gills, maybe a bit to much.. but I rather like how it turned out.
The wood base was made for me by my great-uncle.
