Polymer clay insect

Awesome right?!
Full disclosure: I got the pattern from Christi Friesen, world-renowned polymer artist.
But now that I know the technique, the possibilities are limitless!
Also, I am interested in tiny gears & tiny hardware. If you have any kicking around the house I gladly accept donations and am open to barter!
Happy Wednesday!

I like it, the body of the buggy is gorgeous, and the beads make a great antennae. But I'm honestly not fond of the gear...I feel like it detracts from the delicate swirl of colors and the curl of the wingtips, and all of the other lovely details.

Maybe if there were more gears/bits, it wouldn't look so incongruous? Maybe make him more steampunky?

Either way, you are still heads and tails above me on polymer...I just don't have the patience to sit down with it long enough to learn technique!
