Post-processing

Had a bit of fun with Perfect Photo Suite 8 and Lightroom to create a more artistic looking image of a shot done at East Coast Park. Here is the final results of the processing.

I like the final results as it gave the original image more character, like an old deserted spooky place. The colours are still there but more emphasised giving it more punch.

The original image is shown below.

Clay craft

We had quite a lot of fun with polymer clay last December. Our previous attempt at polymer clay ended in disaster  as it got burnt. This time round, we invested in a oven thermometer to check the temperature as it bakes. We were using a small second toaster that we got off Cash Converter for a couple of tens of dollars and the temperature fluctuate  likes crazy. The temperature indicator on the oven is certainly not correct. We needed about 110 degrees celsius, so once the oven reaches about 120, we open the door and that cools the oven down. This worked quite well, just that we had to be there looking at the temperature but it is just for 10 mins.

Here are some photos of the clay craft that we did together with a couple of other clay pieces that we had done previously.
