I have been watching a lot of Jake Folgers YouTube videos. Here is a mini mushroom fairy house that is only 1″ tall, inspired by Jake. Check out his channel! The mushroom is made from Sculpey®III polymer clay and enclosed in a mini glass cloche.
This heart is going to a woman in my town that was the victim of domestic abuse. I found some pieces of a broken windshield in a parking lot and thought I could use them in my art. This pendant reminds me that peoples hearts can be shattered but not broken. I hope that this woman’s heart is no longer shattered. The heart was made from Sculpey ® Souffle polymer clay and sealed with Beacon’s™ Fast Finish Decoupage.
Here’s my February Makin’s Clay® project, just in time for Valentine Day. Coming in at a little bigger than a quarter, this pendant is sure to take a lickin and keep on tickin all with a little help from Beacons™ Tacky Glue. Head over to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions.
My friend Cindi’s son Thomas was in Florida and saw some cool steampunk figures, took some pictures and told his Mom he thought I would like them. So here’s what I created from the pictures that inspired me to make Choppers, my Makin’s Clay® steampunk piranha. Choppers is a little over 12″ long and in the weeks that it took to make him I was also able to calm him down so he does not bite. My favorite adhesives Beacon’s™ Tacky Glue and Beacon Quick Grip™ were used in the process.
I like making Bottles of Hope…if they put a smile on the face of a cancer survivor or make someone that is very ill smile, then my hope is complete. After seeing a fellow Makin’s Design Team member cover a light bulb shaped bottle I knew I had to make one myself. I started with a very small round bottle and shaped it into a light bulb using Makin’s Clay®. I added a small piece of ball chain for realism. It measures just over 2 inches tall. What fun! Here’s to making someone’s day a little brighter!
Inspired by watching some of Jake Folgers YouTube videos of fairy houses on little rocks, I decided to take a rock, a little smaller than a golf ball, and make a little castle on it. My wife brought back this rock from Stonehaven Scotland. She found it near the Dunnottar Castle, a 14th century castle. My little clay castle is made from Sculpey III® and I added some mica powders to give it a nice tone. Thanks for the inspiration Jake!
Here’s my January Makin’s Clay® project. We were asked to make a Bottle of Hope. I covered one of Kinzee’s insulin bottles with Makin’s Clay®, added a turn key on top and used my favorite adhesive Beacon’s™ Tacky Glue to bond the clay to the bottle. I then sealed the bottle with Beacons™ Fast Finish Decoupage. This little bottle went to my friend Lucy, she just had a bone marrow transplant.
