Scrap Clay and shape cutters
Here are some Fall inspirations!
Fall and winter decorations and crafts are everywhere,I just picked up my first Holiday crafts magazine and am starting to get inspired,by everything around me.Seasons are slowly changing!
Owl wine charms
I found this cute idea on pinterest. They are created by Janet Burns and are originally done in pottery, made to be ornaments, so I thought, why not in polymer!? They could be an ornament, earrings, a pendant, or in this case wine charms. You can make each one look different, with all the colors available in polymer clay.
I used circle cutters to make all of the shapes. You need two shapes for the body, to fit the wire in between, two shapes for the wings, six different size circles for the eyes and a cone shape for the beak.
Inspirations for the upcoming holidays
Polymer Clay bowl
Another fun thing, I've learned at the Connecticut polymer Clay connection was, how to make a bowl, using canes.
2012 ClayconneCTion, Bottle of Hope
I had such a wonderful time last weekend, being part of this year’s ClayconneCTion. There were tons of demos and so many wonderful and talented people. I have learned a lot and am so inspired, that I would like to hide somewhere for at least a week and try all the new techniques, I’ve learned.
Ring holder Mother's Day project
A couple of years back we went through a phase of painting our own pottery. We acquired many different things, from dog bowls to a ring holder. Whoever came up with the idea of a ring holder should be congratulated. It is such a neat thing to have. Mine sits on my kitchen window sill and I use it quite often. I would often look at it and think,”I can make this out of polymer Clay”. So here's my version off a ring holder.
What a great find I had today. I had a fun day shopping with my daughter Alina at a nearby JoAnn's fabrics. I always stroll around and look to see if there's something I can use for my little projects.
I found these great Stretch Magic Necklaces, which I think are great for children's necklaces. They are easy to open and close and come in a fun variety of colors. They also had some black ones, but I really loved the multicolored ones.
I found something fun at pinterest, a silver aluminum bird, made by Karismabykarajewelry on etsy. I loved the design and thought it would be a great idea to make it with Polymer clay. So I chose some sculpey III turquoise, conditioned it and made a long snake with the extruder, then I shaped it like the picture of the bird, baked it and put a ribbon onto the top. So cute. I made it large enough to hang it into the window, but I think it would be cute to make it smaller and add to the wrapping of a presant.
