The Enchanted Tree Takes Root

The roots are calling me...

Before I start on the main part of the tree,
I need to establish some root-stability...

My gourd and stand
have already done acrobatics off the table!!!!

for the roots, I am using "natural" Apoxie Sculpt...

I then begin to texture the clay
with a rubber stamp pad...

and then apply the pearlescent powders...
oh, how I love this part!

I did remember, after I was well into my coloring, that it is good to apply the powders first, this keeps the rubber stamp pad from sticking to the clay... but either way... it worked!
