Bear with me everyone.  This is the first time I'm posting a picture on the new website.  I've been into making people out of old potato mashers.  I made this witch for Halloween.  It was part of the package that I sent out to Kari for our wonderful junk swap.  I made an angel for Cynthia using her grandson's face.  Now I'm working on a Santa masher.  Should be fun if I can figure out how to do his hair.      //*<*\\

saclark writes: Thanks again for all of your compliments. I really missed all of the support you all give. I've been so busy trying to keep up with items for the store I sell at that I was kind of in hybernation. But, I was having withdrawals so I'm back. I'll post more mashers when I catch my next breath! And look forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations. Thanks again!!!

Thanks for the scoop on how to make these. Will have to try these as I have a multitude of mashers. And YES it's getting colder up here. Doesn't seem too bad if the sun's shining. Talk soon

saclark writes: Thanks everyone! It's really fun to come up with the different ideas on these. (Hey LuAnn- how's things up by you. Adrian is getting COLD!) I made this type of face using a push mold and paper clay. Instead of scraping off the back to be flat, I keep it rounded, like a head would be, then stick a wooden dowel in it. This type of clay just air dries, no baking. If you want hair on it, I stick wires in it before it dries to attach it to. Paint, antique and whallah, a head. On the angel masher that I used in my member profile, I just used a round wooden ball I took off something and glued a face on it. Either is cute. The clay is a little more work.
