Yay! Sea Monkeys...

I had those once as a kid, probably bought them at Sav-On drug store in my neighborhood - pretty cool when they were alive. They all died after a day or so so I got to go back and buy a package of "Magic Garden" (?) - the colorful tablets you dropped in water so they could grow like mini stalagmites...those were cool too. I still had the glass fishbowl from the Sea Monkey fiasco so my color tablets were used in that.

I remember the Sea Monkey adverts in comic books and stuff back in the day too. Great concept MDM - I wish I woulda thought of that myself! G

Thank you MauiRose, that was fun and quick project
Wendy, I will definitely show pictures of the completed project. Less than 2 months away, time to get crackin"!
Rick, I looked at some Raku kiln plans and I like the 30 gallon steel drums. I think they cost about $100 to make with the burner and ceramic blanket - I'm just not sure I would ever make 100 bucks worth of Raku
TikiG, my deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved Sea Monkeys I can't take credit for the Sea Monkey concept, Bowana made some adorable Sea Monkey pendants a while back. I took his idea and I'm driving it like I stole it (oh, maybe I did steal it )

That's not Tiki! I'm taking a mosaic class, something I wanted to learn how to do. The class makes rainforest animal themed pieces that will be public art - I think my Quetzal will end up on the side of a concrete trash can, seriously!


For this technique, the main pieces are cut from wet clay slabs then fired and glazed. Next I'll cut all the all the background pieces from commercial tiles and grout it all together.

My Hear No Evil and See No Evil Sea Monkeys are ready to go into the kiln, I'll post a picture of the set when they are done.

Mike, Creativity is your middle name. I've been wanting to do mosaics for years. At Christmas I got one as a child that was similar to paint by the numbers. It was so fun. I'm looking forward to those photos, Wendy

Hey, is that leaf yours too? Nice! The quetzal would have been cool in the bird swap!

Maui, have fun with that plug, glad it made it across the Pacific OK. (Remember to dry it slowly as it's thick)

Finally finished my 3 Seamonkey spice shakers

really neat. lifelong sea monkey fan. I always got mine in the toy section of the big hippie emporieum in Great Falls MT. The toy section was inbetween the hanging basket chairs and the dashiki's. One floor below the waterbeds. and when I got them home they already smelled like patchouli.
ahh, the early 70's.

It still creeps me out that sea monkeys are just mini-shrimp.....atleast we can dream of those long lost sea monkey empires.
