FOR AMY…

This house shaped pendant, made from Sculpey® Souffle polymer clay, was made for our realtor Amy, owner of Shoreland Realty Group. Mica powders were used to highlight the house. Thanks Amy for all you do!2017-amy

COTTER’S COTTAGE…

Quite a few months ago I had promised my sister-in-law that I would make her a fairy door…well I did not get around to it until yesterday.  Instead, I made her the whole cottage for a cute little fairy. I used Sculpey®III to cover an old bottle I had and fashioned this little house for her. Hey Cheryl, I still love you even though you voted for Trump!

Thank you Scott Publications for including three of my art projects in your 2017 edition of Just Mixed Media. Two are Makin’s Clay® pieces and one is a  Sculpey® Premo piece. I also used some Createalong.com products in the pieces.

MINI FAIRY MUSHROOM HOUSE

I have been watching a lot of Jake Folgers YouTube videos.  Here is a mini mushroom fairy house that is only 1″ tall, inspired by Jake.  Check out his channel!  The mushroom is made from Sculpey®III polymer clay and enclosed in a mini glass cloche.2017-mushroom 

SHATTERED BUT NOT BROKEN…

This heart is going to a woman in my town that was the victim of domestic abuse.  I found some pieces of a broken windshield in a parking lot and thought I could use them in my art. This pendant reminds me that peoples hearts can be shattered but not broken.  I hope that this woman’s heart is no longer shattered. The heart was made from Sculpey ® Souffle polymer clay and sealed with Beacon’s™ Fast Finish Decoupage.

THIS OLE TICKER…

Here’s my February Makin’s Clay® project, just in time for Valentine Day. Coming in at a little bigger than a quarter, this pendant is sure to take a lickin and keep on tickin all with a little help from Beacons™ Tacky Glue.

CHOPPERS…

My friend Cindi’s son Thomas was in Florida and saw some cool steampunk figures, took some pictures and told his Mom he thought I would like them.  So here’s what I created from the pictures that inspired me to make Choppers, my Makin’s Clay® steampunk piranha.  Choppers is a little over 12″ long and in the weeks that it took to make him I was also able to calm him down so he does not bite. My favorite adhesives Beacon’s™ Tacky Glue and Beacon Quick Grip™ were used in the process.
