I wanted to learn how to use acrylic modeling paste so Susan showed me how! Why a scorpion you might ask? Well, we were talking of the old moral of the Scorpion and the Frog....The story is about a scorpion asking a frog to carry him across a river. The frog is afraid of being stung, but the scorpion reassures him that if it stung the frog, the frog would sink and the scorpion would drown as well. The frog then agrees, nevertheless, in mid-river, the scorpion stings him, dooming the two of them. When asked why, the scorpion explains, "I'm a scorpion; it's my nature."
