Hi there! I haven’t been posting these past few days because I have a deadline to meet for this event which is really cool because it’ll be my first time abroad!
I’ve also been busy reviewing for college exams and watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Yes, all ten seasons. Pretty addicting. I also bought Serpent’s Shadow because Percy Jackson made me a Rick Riordan fan.
Oh! And me and my awesome friend (We’ll call her M) taught my boyfriend how to ride a bike! (How old is he? He’s 15 but uhh let’s pretend he’s 7 so he doesn’t get embarrassed about not knowing how to ride a bike.)
This bike’s frame is actually made of bamboo! Cool! (But it’s not for beginners but it was all we had…)
He also almost fell head first into some concrete which was really scary, but he was able to use his hand instead. Then when we checked and his wound looked like a creepy smiley face. With a beard thingy.
And we saw a dead crab whom we named Roadkill Crab. Poor crabby :c
Last week my mom bought me some polymer clay from Divisoria for likereally cheap! Yay cheap art supplies! So I tried doing this polymer clay braided bracelet.
It was all very easy until I tried baking it. So obviously I didn’t want to use the oven because I don’t want my cupcakes to smell like plastic and because it’s such a waste and all. I tried using the oven toaster which actually works for some people but I had three problems:
1. Our oven toaster only has two options: 350 watts or 700 watts. No temperature control but that’s okay because I can use the oven thermometer but then
2. The clay mom bought was unbranded (of course, it’s Divisoria.) and no one really knew what temperature it was supposed to be baked in. I googled and I saw the optimal temperature for all polymer clays so I figured as long as it was in that range it’ll be okay. But it wasn’t because
3. I forgot that the oven toaster timer was on and I went to get something and when I came back I was like a hundred degrees Celsius higher than the maximum temperature of the range. So when it came out the top part looked all melty but the under side was okay (but the rice I put it on top of so that it wouldn’t get deformed made some little dents. Irony.)
it’s not so bad when you put the bad half at the bottom but if you looked really closely you could totally see it.
That was when I had the idea of wearing it on my head on top of a top bun.
Incredibly blurry pictures credits to my 10 year old brother. Hmmm.
In retrospect maybe it was actually a good idea, leaving the oven on (okay maybe that was a safety hazard but the browning makes it look like a creme brulee, which I totally love. Yum.)
