ORANGE IS THE NEW…COVFEFE

 

2017 LCRI will be attending Klay Karma Retreat at Rivier University in Nashua NH July 20-23.  They play a game called LCR: (left, center, right). So I made 9 “coins” from polymer clay for the event.  Last year for the retreat in Connecticut, I made 9 “coins” but they had a Statue of Liberty torch and a patriotic theme.  This year I took them in a whole different direction.  Looking forward to reconnecting with the new friends I made last year.

FOR KATIE…

 

 

 

2017 BH Shell TopThis Bottle of Hope is for my nephew David’s daughter Katie who is in the battle of her life fighting angiosarcoma.  I used Makin’s Clay® to form the shells and to cover the rest of the bottle surface. There is a small pearl hidden in the shells. You are in my prayers Katie.

 

FOR KAREN…

I made this little book, measuring 2″ X  3″,  for my friend Karen.  Her Mom, a friend of mine since I was a teenager, died yesterday.  I used two different Makin’s® Texture Sheets for the front and back covers. The mini book is filled with pictures of Karen and her Mom.  Rest in peace my friend, you will be missed.

MAKIN A FLASH…

 

2017 FlashFor my June Makin’s Clay® project, I covered a flash drive with clay and made it look like a Steampunk item.  That is the awesome thing about Makin’s, the No Bake Clay®.  You can cover anything and transform it without the heat of an oven.  Go to Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions!

Just Steampunk Volume 9…

I got a copy of Just Steampunk and was surprised to see my 2016 Makin’s Clay® Mini book that I made in 2016 on a full page spread!  Thanks Scott Publications, I did not expect to see that.

GIVE A HOOT…

I made a little owl pendant for my May Makin’s Clay® project.  I used numerous watch parts and some gears.  Head over to:  Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions and I will show you how to make one for yourself.  It is easy, it is fun and no baking is required!

FAIRY GARDEN TREE…

Inspired by my friend and sculptor Jake Folger, I made this little tree for one of my fairy gardens. I rarely make things for myself but I got so sick of buying cheap plastic pieces for my gardens that I decided to make my own.  I used Sculpey III® to make the tree and colored it with mica powders after which I sealed it with exterior Mod Podge®.  It is attached to a rock I found when visiting a local nursery.  Thanks for the great tutorials Jake!
