BOTTLE OF HOPE…

 

 

2019 bh I made a very small Bottle of Hope using Cernit® polymer clay and used one of my Makin’s Clay® texture sheet, Cobblestones and their heart push mold.  I added extra color with some Art C wax.

Passion for Polymer Vol.1

 

 

 

issue 1 january 2019.1I am so honored to have three pieces of my art in the premier issue of Passion for Polymer by CreateAlong.com.  I have a tutorial on how to make a steampunk bird, and two Makin’s Clay® projects, including my piranha in the Makin’s®  ad. Editor Cindi McGee and producers Ilysa Ginsburg and Kira McCoy have put out a great  magazine…even the paper in the magazine screams quality! It is so nice to have a magazine that you can go to for inspiration and creativity.  Thanks girls!

GEARS…

 

 

T's heartHere’s a steampunk heart I made from Souffle polymer clay.  I used a couple of gears that my friend dug up during her adventures in metal detecting. I finished the piece with Art C wax.

FOR THE DETECTORIST…

 

 

 

2018 Heart in chainsI left an entire package of Makin’s Clay® unwrapped and exposed to the air to fully “cure”, and air dry the clay.  This process took about 2 1/2 months.  When the clay was completely dried, I carved out a heart shape and added some inclusions.  The inclusions happen to be “findings” that my metal detecting mentor had dug up. After she gave me a box of mixed pieces that she thought I could use in my art, I decided to make her a pendant with three pieces that she dug. Look out Springtime, they’ll be a whole lotta digging going on!
