Here's my completed finger labyrinth. It's made from air-drying clay, the sort I used to make pots out of at primary school, and painted in watercolours and acrylics. I took my time making it - it's the sort of thing that shouldn't be rushed. I took a long time to realise that of course there should be a shell imprint in the middle, and it sat around unpainted for quite a long time before I worked out what colour it should be. You see, I wanted to get it right.

In retrospect, the blue and gold colour scheme was entirely predictable. I love blue and gold. I used a lot of both in my wedding. This is my current desktop picture. And it echoes medieval depictions of heaven.

There are some useful resources on labyrinths here, if you're interested in learning more.

My next door neighbour, Marlene, wrote a book about labyrinths. Don't know what it's called though.

Helpful comment, I know.

... and echoes the waymarks on the Camino, of course. Very nice!
