New Frame

I was not feeling really well in last two weeks or so. In fact, it was really bad with my back and leg - sciatica! I guess I am really getting old, having troubles like that. Yeah yeah, I know, I sit too much and don't exercise enough; but lately I really seem to be alergic to all kind of exercises. After almost not being able to walk, I will more seriously consider making few changes in my life. Guess I became too lazy. Anyway, I am feeling better now and will go back to work after tomorrow. Most of all I am looking forward to being able to create again, which was lately kind of impossible.

I have made this frame before I ended up in bed for quite few days. It is plain wooden frame, covered with a layer of scrap clay and then decorated with all kind of clay in different shapes. On the first two pics you can clearly see the spots that were left on wood from fresh clay - never place polymer clay on wood which should remain clean! And on the first photo is also shown a nice mess that I have on my table every time I work; to be honest, it is left like that sometimes when I finish working, too.

I was really pleased with the final result. I think the frame turned out really good, as well as the picture I put in, which I decorated with different tools in Photoshop. And beside few smaller things that is all I have done in last 2 or 3 weeks. How sad!

nice pic frame, and you english is very good being your second language. It's a shame you have not been well as I still don't see anything suitable for males to wear.

I have question, I have question!!
Did you bake a frame with the polimer clay AND the glass on it??
Wood survived? What about glass?
And the thing is, that clay is getting bit smaller by baking, so how you did it stick together?
Please for answer, I'm searching this information in internet and cannot find.
