DOORIE, DOOR KNOB ANGEL…

 

2018 Angelfinal framedMy June Makin’s Clay® project was a lot of fun to create.  I used an antique glass door knob, some black Makin’s Clay®, metal wings, ball chain, a gear and a large nut to create my little angel. Hop on over to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions and you can make one too!

SWITCH PLATE COVER…

 

 

2018 Koi Switch cover 

This month, with my  CreateAlong.com box, I covered a switch plate cover with Premo® polymer clay, then used their Magic Transfer Paper for the main design.  I then colored in the design with alcohol inks. This will be going into our pool house!

MY LITTLE PINEAPPLE…

 

 

2018 PinappleI just love all the applications that are possible with Makin’s Clay®.  I covered a small plastic medicine bottle with some Makin’s Clay® and formed a small pineapple.  When it dried I carved out the texture, painted it yellow then added bronze wax to the lines. The top is an air plant…what a cute way to display your air plant and recycle a little plastic bottle that would have ended up in the trash!  Anything is possible with Makin’s The No Bake Clay®.

AJAX…

 

 

2018 AjaxI used an Ajax dish washing detergent bottle as the substrate to make this mannequin. It is covered with Makin’s Clay®.  Gears, an old clock key, a keyhole escutcheon with a key and various other found objects adorn Ajax. Metallic finishing waxes complete the project.

DRAGONFLY SPHERE…

 

 

2018 Dragonfly SphereHere’s what I created with the CreateAlong.com polymer clay box.  I love the Magic Transfer Papers and used them for the dragonfly imagines.  I also used heat-set crystals and some flower stamps. The sphere was built on an old light bulb covered with Souffle® polymer clay then antiqued with burnt umber oil paint.  The sphere flew down to NC to chill out.

FOR BECKY…

 

 

2018 HenryAlbeit not polymer clay, I made this paperweight for Jan’s cousin in  NC in memory of her schnauzer Henry….what a cutie.

DECEPTION…

 

 

2018 Pencil Necklace FinalFor my May Makin’s Clay® project, I made a necklace from extruded clay that resembles pencils. I saw a similar necklace on Pinterest made from real colored pencils and decided to make one from clay.  Looks can be deceiving. Go to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions.
