Where in the world is Makin’s airship?

Gee, I wonder where my Makin’s airship is?Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan Skyline


This steampunk airship was made with Makin’s Clay® and I got to tell you I had a blast making it. The copper tip is a replaced part from my furnace , the chains are from an old clock and the basket was made by putting metal tape over a small cardboard box.  The propellers are from Prima Junkyard Findings. Now that she has landed, she is in suspension mode hanging in my studio. I LOVE Makin’s Clay®!2016 Airship1


For my April Makin’s Clay® project I made this tiny book pendant.  It measures 1″x 1 1/2″.Head over to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions!2016 Book and Key_edited-1

Have to brag a little….

Not a big deal to some but I am thrilled that after a year on the Makin’s Clay® Design Team that I am now certified!  Although most of my friends already know that I am certifiable, just saying…Makins Certification


This little fairy door was made for my friend Vicki.  I used Souffle™ polymer clay, mica powders, and finished it with an oil based paint to antique. No molds were used for this door, I made it all myself freehand.  So Vickie, this door should be OK to leave outside…just use some silicone and glue it to the base of your favorite tree and the fairies will appear!  Notice the “L” on the door knocker…only fairies with that last name can enter.2016 Fairy Door on Tree copy
