Many artists around the world are making Hearts of Hope for Serbian children with cancer. My friend Anya of Artensania Studios in Serbia and Fimo Polymer Clay are sponsoring this project. Here are my contributions. Thank you Anya for telling me about this…my pleasure to make these for the children.
This is my little robot made for my August Makin’s Clay® project. I used the bottom of an Altoid Smalls tin. Extruded clay forms the arms and legs that I made look like pencils. Everything was glued in place with my favorite adhesives Beacon Tacky™ glue and Beacon Power-Tac. Gears, a fuse and other old parts make up his body suit. Go to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions so you can make one!
For my July PolymerclayTV project, I made a fairy tin from a tiny mint tin. I incorporated CreateAlong.com Fairy Cabochon Silicone Mold and their Color Me Transfer Paper to adorn the top. The tin base was textured with a Kor roller over the Premo™ polymer clay and Beacon™ Tacky Glue was used as the adhesive. The tin was then sealed with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage.
I am attending my first ever polymer clay retreat in New London Connecticut Thursday through Sunday. They play a game called Left Center Right. We make “poker chips” from polymer clay to use in the game. The winner gets all the different chips that the artists make. So, here are my first ever LCR poker chips. I used Fimo® polymer clay, a mold I made to form the Statue of Liberty torch, and I textured the front and back with a Makin’s® Texture Sheet. I also cut stars out with the medium size Makin’s® Clay Cutter and covered them with Fimo® Silver Leaf.
This is a piece I made using Fimo® and Premo® polymer clays. I also used Makin’s® Texture sheets and their triangle cutters. I epoxied the piece with Parks Super Glaze. In light of the incidents in Orlando and Dallas, this pendant represents Tolerance, Civility and Respect. The Nazis used a pink triangle, in the concentration camps, to identify and shame homosexuals. Today it is a symbol for the LBGT community as is the rainbow flag. The rainbow colored small balls of clay represent the rainbow of colors of people.
