Clog #1

Well, it took me a while to get it finished, but here is clog number one.  I've included a before and after shot, both with the remote control (which just happened to be handy!) for perspective.  I really liked making this and can't wait to start the other.  Especially after the magic of the felting project.  This one took about 14 minutes of agitation to get to this point.  I decided to follow the instructions for a different felting project...the main differences being that I didn't put the clog in a zippered bag or anything, and I threw a pair of jeans in with it to help with the agitation.  All in all a great project and thanks to Chris for suggesting it!

Wow!  Reminds me of Seinfeld's "like a turtle" episode.  Seriously, though - nice work and great color choice.

ken- great colors! I dont use a zippered bag either.  i have an old beach towel and it seems to catch most of the fuzz.

Ken, in all seriousness it looks really good!  As do your pierced nipples on your blog

Wonderful Job, Ken.  Great guage consistancy.

Now, about them nipples . . . . . I just dunno . . . . I can't bring myself to going through that.  I'm ordinarily a very brave and stalwart kinda guy, but needles through the nips . . . . I just don't know.     Is there enough Scotch in the world to numb the pain????

Anyway, great job on the clog.  Now, dig in there and get the other one done!  Spit Spot!

Excellent job ont he clogs and excellent job on the nipples!!! I got mine done a couple years ago (the nipples, not the clogs).   I plan to finish my clogs this weekend.  I'll be sure to take a picture of them (the clogs, not the nipples) and post them here!

Ken, excellent work on the clog!  As for the nipple piercings, ouch!  I got my navel pierced a couple of years ago.  Me left ear is pierced, but I wanted something else pierced and I wanted something unusual for a guy to get done.  Anyway, the actual piercing itself wasn't too bad, but cleaning that the first night, I nearly passed out.  It also took a little over a year for it to completely heal.  I'm glad I got it done and some of the looks I get in the locker room at the gym are just priceless!
