CREE, THE BULB-BUG…

 

 

2018 Cree the BugI enjoy recycling old and worn parts into a new creation. The body of this bug is a small old yellow light bulb. I also used a part from a newer type bulb around the light bulb.  A small circular saw blade and copper wire was also used.  I formed the wings from Sculpey® Clear Liquid Bakeable Clay.  The “landing wheels” are two small gears on a copper axle.  That’s the buzz for today.

JUST MIXED MEDIA VOLUME 3…

 

 

2018 JMM pgMixed Media 2018 Vol 3 CoverThank you Scott Publications for including my Makin’s Clay® camper on the cover of volume 3 of Just Mixed Media! This was a fun project and as usual Makin’s Clay® was a great product to use in the making of this camper!

2018 Janet KI made this Bottle of Hope for a family member.  It was made from Makin’s Clay®. Bottles of Hope are small glass bottles covered with polymer clay and given to cancer patients.  They symbolize a wish and a hope for health. This bottle will be going to Naples Florida.

4 SEASONS BOTTLE…

 

 

2018 Season finallyI made this little 4 seasons bottle for my February Makin’s Clay® Design Team project.  Each side has a little “symbol” depicting  a season… a snowflake for Winter, a flower for Spring, the sun for Summer and a leaf for Fall. Head on over to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions so you can make one too!

CARPENTER’S ANGEL…

 

 

2018 screwI altered an old stubby screwdriver into a steampunk angel. The face and wings were made from Makin’s Clay®, and two large gears were also used.  The wings were coated with Krylon® Leafing Pens in silver and gold. No screwing around here…

JONAH THE WHALE…

 

 

2018 Jonah the whaleThis is Jonah the whale.  He was made from  Sculpey’s Souffle™ polymer clay.  His “outfit” is made from eyelets, a propeller, a cog, winding key and some chains. The coloring is from mica powders.

2018 Sugar HeartI made a heart pendant from January’s  CreateAlong.com  art box. The shape was cut using the heart cutter, lace was added and their Magic Transfer Paper heart image was also used.  Sculpey Souffle™ polymer clay, and Sculpey’s clear and silver liquid clay were used in the process.  CreateAlong.com has all the tools and supplies for any of your polymer projects…check them out!
