Fifth polymer clay workshop

It's been high time to continue our polymer clay workshop series. I think that a whole year has passed since the last one, which means that we were all very busy otherwise but also very excited to get dirty with the clay again!
Bilo je krajnje vreme da nastavimo naš niz radionica polimerske gline. Od poslednje je, mislim, prošla cela godina, što samo pokazuje koliko smo bile zauzete na drugim stranama i koliko smo bile radosne da ponovo prljamo ruke glinom!
The setting for this workshop was the most beautiful so far - a garden on the beautiful green hill od Popovica near Novi Sad. It was a work day so we started working late in the afternoon which slowly grew into a pleasant evening and a work by lamp and candle light which was very nice and we didn't mind much that the amount of light was not adequate.
Imali smo do sada najlepše okruženje za radionicu - jedan lepi vrt na zelenim obroncima Popovice, brda u blizini Novog Sada. Bio je radni dan pa smo sa radionicom počeli kasno popodne koje je polako preraslo u prijatno veče i rad uz lampe i sveće što je bilo toliko prijatno da nam nije smetalo što nismo imale baš dovoljno osvetljenja.
The company was a pleasant too with plenty of our friends, old ones and new, but only three of us actually working. Who can blame the rest of them - it was an evening perfect for relaxing and not doing anything.
Društvo je takođe bilo odlično sa puno starih i novih prijatelja, mada smo samo nas tri zapravo radile, odnosno, učestvovale u radionici. A ko bi mogao da krivi one ostale kada je veče bilo idealno za opuštanje i ne rađenje ničega.

The guest of honour at this workshop was the mister Extruder (Makin's Professional Ultimate Clay Extruder), who just came from faraway Australia to stay with our Ana. I have an extruder myself, although I haven't been using it much because it requires a lot of strength to push the clay out of it. This new extruder that Ana has acquired is much easier to work with since it has a screw-like mechanism. I have to have one of these ASAP!!!
Počasni gost radionice je bio gospodin Ekstruder, koji je tek nedavno pristigao iz daleke Australije i sada boravi kod naše Ane. I ja takođe imam ekstruder, ali ga nisam mnogo koristila jer je potrebno jako puno snage da bi se glina istisnula iz njega. Ovaj novi ekstruder koji je Ana nabavila je mnooogo lakši za korišćenje jer ima mehanizam sa navojem. Čim pre moram da nabavim jedan takav za sebe!
Ana has led us through a process of making a cool pattern (that's what she told us) but actually it was more that that: it was my favourite of all patterns for polymer clay! I never knew that it was made with an extruder and that I could have been making it for ages now!
Ana nas je vodila kroz proces kojim ćemo, kako je rekla, dobiti jednu super šaru. Ali to je zapravo bila moja najomiljena šara sa polimerskom glinom! Nisam imala pojma da se ta šara pravi sa ekstruderom i da sam mogla odavno da počnem da je pravim!
You can guess that for me the workshop was a great success. If you wonder what we have made, you'll have to wait and see when it is all finished and public-ready. We don't pretend to know much (which we don't) and we don't make the coolest stuff (which we will one day, I'm sure), but we are having a lot of fun and that's the greatest thing about these little polymer clay workshops of ours!
I sami možete pretpostaviti da je, ako mene pitate, ovo bila veoma uspešna radionica. A ako se pitate šta smo sve napravile, moraćete da sačekate dok sve ne bude završeno i spremno za javno prikazivanje. Mi se ne pravimo da znamo mnogo o svemu ovome (pošto realno i ne znamo), niti da pravimo fenomenalne stvarčice (što ćemo, nadam se, raditi jednog dana), ali se sigurno odlično zabavljamo i to je zapravo najbolja stvar kada su ove naše male radionice polimerske gline u pitanju!

Hvala svima! :)
Verovali ili ne, još nisam završila radove, mada sam deo sa brušenjem i glancanjem odradila. Evo sutra imamo sledeću radionicu pa posle mogu lepo sve zajedno da finiširam :)
