    Just Steampunk! Volume 1 2011


This is a magnet I made for Michelle…it depicts her Mom at our 2009 annual Liberty Splash pool party. It is made from polymer clay with eyelets and a glass pebble over the picture of Marcia.

Also, at this time, I would like to thank my partner for the great pictures she has taken for me and for all her help with my blog…you rock Jan!!!


Cloth Paper Scissors, a collage, mixed media artist magazine, had a reader challenge…build a home for their little neighborhood.  The mini abode could be made from fabric, paper, metal, found objects, anything but it could not exceed 1/2 lb.  There was a pattern to use and the house was to be that size.  Well, I love a challenge.  I made my house called “Liberty House” fashioned after our home. I used basswood for the frame, then covered it with Grungeboard.  I cut out the windows, glued acetate that I tinted with alcohol ink onto the back, made shutters from the window cut outs, then used Glossy Accents to fill the window openings.  The chimney was made from basswood that I textured with a hot knife. And  to finish it off, there is Lady Liberty  in front  just like at my home!  Yesterday I learned that Liberty House was a finalist…so off it goes to Cloth Paper Scissors to be possibly featured in an up coming issue.


Butterflies are a symbol of change and transformation.  This little steampunk butterfly was made for my friend Raine…she really got me started in polymer clay and taught me a lot about using this medium.  Phoenix, the name I have given this butterfly, is made from polymer clay.  A fuse and various watch gears are embedded in the clay. The back has two little wells with glass beads covered with resin.  “If I had wings no one would ask me should I fly…”


This little steampunk bird is a free wheeling spirit.  She flew into my mind and captured my imagination.  Amelia is made of polymer clay and embellished with watch parts and gears.  Come fly with me…
