    “Hungry Fungus", made with Sculpey Premo™ When I was asked what I like best about Sculpey and especially how I use it, at first I did not know what to say. Honestly the answer is not that easy!

  7. What's Your Favorite Color?

    by Anke Humpert “People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In my line of work, I...

  8. Why it can give you a boost to go off the beaten track!

    Most of us do spent a fair amount of time on line. Often for work, but also in our free time. We connect to friends and family and we inform ourselves. And let´s be honest more often that we want we also fall down the rabbit hole and one thing leads to another: we spent much more time that...

  9. The colours of a sun set!

    When you ask artists about their sources of inspiration often you will hear: “I am inspired by nature!” Well, that´s great, but what does it actually mean?I wanted to see for myself if I can tap into “nature” and find some inspiration.

    Literally and figuratively speaking. This morning I was smelling something “electric” (if you ever did, you know what I mean!) near my work desk.
