COILED HEART…

2015 Heart CoilThis little heart of mine is made from Sculpey’s Souffle™ polymer clay. The inclusions are numerous watch parts and gears. Sealed in Lisa Pavelka’s Magic-Glos® UV cured resin is a coil that I salvaged.  The piece is finished with mica powders.

“MAKIN” the robot…

Let me introduce “MAKIN”, the Makin’s Clay® robot. He is a perfect example of the versatility of the air dry polymer clay.  I was able to tint white Makin’s Clay® with acrylic paint to get the Makin’s® green color to make this little guy.  Not having to bake the clay to cure it gives you a lot of options for substrates, which in this case was a small cardboard box I used for his body. Head over to makinsclayblog.blogspot.com to see all the fun things you can make with this awesome product!Makin Robot all

ESS ROBOT
