Fun With Pixlr (Photoshop) Part 2

Been playing around with more Pixlr photo stuff. This is fun and I've been trying to do more so that I can get better at it. Click here to check out the first batch. The crazy ones with The Rock or Predator are from my Twitter where Screen Junkies Nick Mundy made suggestions which started with the Miles Dyson one.

Creepy Handmade Clay Hands 2

So I made a couple more of those weird hands. When people ask me “Why hands?” I say “I don't know what I'm doing why are you asking me these questions?!”

Fun With Pixlr (Photoshop)

This is not Photoshop. I didn't pay hundreds of dollars for a program. For these I have used Pixlr which is a free site that has three settings. Beginner, awesome, and oh my lord I'll never use this one because its too professional. Over the last two months I have started using what is the History button and manipulating pictures for me and a couple of friends as gifts and jokes.

Creepy Handmade Clay Hands

Last week I went out to Blick's on Beverly and bought some clay. Now that I am done making Perler bead designs and haven't started knitting yet I wanted something new to do. I'd done some sculpting in high school but wouldn't say that I was good at it. I found this clay, Della Robbia, that comes in a 4 pound square for about $6.

I decided to make a small bear (not pictured) and then for whatever reason an alien hand. The one with three fingers. I liked the way it looked and then made another one. I thought I was done but then I decided to paint them. This is when things got weird.
