LACED…

I decided after 4+ years to step down from the Makin’s Clay® Design Team.  Here’s my last project which I named “Laced”. Thanks Cindi, our DT leader, for all your support and friendship. You gotta know when to fold them…and this is the time.

CONNECTED…

Here’s my June Makin’s Clay® project. Hop on over to makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions on how I created this piece! This is the second piece of my year of hearts!

MENDED…

This heart was craved from a piece of fully cured Makin’s Clay®.  I unwrapped a block of clay and let it sit out for a month or so.  I love the facets from carving and the effect is totally different than just forming the heart from fresh clay. Never any waste when you are using Makin’s Clay®.

Passion for Polymer…

How incredibly honored am I to have a spread showing my studio in the new Passion for Polymer magazine along with a mini tutorial!  Thank you Kira, Ilysa and Cindi, the editor.  I love my work space.

UNHINGED HEART…

For my May Makin’s Clay® project, I made a steampunk heart with a hinge in the middle.  I am going to do a year of hearts on the design team this year.  Go to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions!  Anything is possible with Makin’s Clay®

THE LAYERS OF MY HEART

I made this pendant using Souffle polymer clay.  I textured the back using a Makin’s® Texture Sheet, then I covered the piece with  UV cured resin. Continue reading

STEAMPUNK SHOE…

 

 

 

IMG_3607I am so inspired by Laurie Mika’s art.  A while back she made a shoe shrine and I decided to follow suit and make a steampunk version.  I turned an old wooden flat shoe form into a high heel by adding a large screw and forming the heel with foil which I then covered with rigid wrap.  The piece was then covered with Premo polymer clay and inclusions from my  large mass of pulleys, springs, a fuse and various other parts.  This was a fun project!
