    Landscape Texture Sheets- Inspiration to Create Ring Dishes by Sherri Kellberg

    One of my favorite new Sculpey  products are the Landscape Texture Sheets. You get 2 texture sheets in a pack,  one has 6 mini textures, the other is an all-over floral pattern.  I've found that it's an easy way to add designs to my clay ring dishes.  The sheets are transparent, so it makes it simple to line up the...

    My Inspirations

     Littlest Sweet Shop is a world that I have created to showcase my miniature work. I wanted to have something that would stand out in the sea of other talented miniature artists so I made a sweet shop diorama to display my work and brought it to life. In order to create something that was truly original, I drew inspiration...

    Bracelets and Bangles and Cuffs...Oh My!

      When I think of summer, I think of wearing bracelets, cuffs and big bangles when I go out. Here are a few new styles I have come across. Distinguishing between a bracelet and a bangle is not a precise science. I found a simple explanation, "Bangles usually circular in shape, and unlike bracelets, are not flexible." I myself would add that...

    Tiny Bottles for Summer!

    I have been seeing tiny bottles showing up everywhere lately. They have been used to hold many different types of items, including polymer clay mini food cane slices to lady bugs,  fish, sea turtles, mermaids and many other summer themed items. Here is a collection of some of the designs I found online. Most of them come with a tiny...

    Miniatures are back...but in a new form!

    You may not know this, but the first people to use polymer clay were miniaturists. I know this as in the beginning....well maybe not that far back, the only place I could find the clay was in hobby and train shops. It was used to create tiny people or greenery for model trains. Soon after discovering the clay, I was...

    What I Like To Do To Stay Creative

    No matter if working with polymer clay is your hobby, your creative outlet or it is your art form, we are all not inspired at times. We feel we are doing the same old same old again and again and just have no ideas at one point. It happens to everyone. The point is: not to stay un-inspired and un-creative...

    The Joy of Scrap Clay

    The Joy of Scrap Clay  Teresa Pandora Salgado   Got scrap? I think we all do. Some of my most relaxing times revolve around it. After all, what have you got to lose? I especially love to make Natasha pieces. If you’ve ever made a Natasha bead or pendant, you may have asked yourself, who is Natasha? For years I...

    The Importance of Keeping a Polymer Clay Journal

    Many have wondered if they should be keeping a polymer clay journal. In my opinion, I think a polymer clay journal is essential for cataloging where you’ve been, where you’re going, and how you might get there. Think of it as a little “glimpse” into your studio over time. What Kind of Things Might Your Write Down? Colors you’ve used...

    Spring-Summer Trend...Gingham!

    I diligently search the fashion magazines for trends in fashion that could relate to clay . Seriously, don't we try to relate EVERYTHING to clay? "look at the wall texture-good for clay" or "I could cane this pattern"..  It seems that one of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer will be gingham!  As well as pale blues for nails.  So I...

    Sculpey Easter Crafts Round up

    Easter Crafts are a fun activity for children.  This year is no exception since Easter is early and winter is still here and indoor activities are needed.  The winter this year in Ohio has been on the extra cold side so it is fun to fire up the oven and make the kitchen warm.  You can use any variety of...

    What a Difference a Day Makes

    What a Difference a Day Makes by Teresa Pandora Salgado As a caner, I often set aside several days to blend, build and assemble millefiore elements. That’s all well and good I suppose, since the payoff eventually comes in the form of a nice complex cane; but, then I’ve got to start the actual project. So there’s another day, maybe...

    For the Love of Junque

    For the Love of Junque by Teresa Pandora Salgado I remember when Re-purposing was called Recycling. I think recycling was a better word, because our trash and treasures really do go through a cycle, don’t they? The pen holder shown here is a Knott’s Berry Farm jam jar that I lost the lid to. The bowl is a battered old...

    Embracing the Hideous

    Embracing the Hideous Teresa Pandora Salgado Keep this to yourself, ok? Sometimes I make some truly ugly canes. No lie, my friends. I blend and blend and reduce and reduce and combine and combine and I manage to create something not only underwhelming, but downright grotesque. Such was the case with the cane used in this bowl. You’ll notice I...

    My Creative Map

     I decided last weekend to do another study like I did with the cutter bracelets last year. The way I do my challenges is to decide on a creation type - bracelet or pendant, etc. and then nominate the tools that can be used in all the projects.  This time I also limited myself to the colors of clay on...

    He"art"felt Expressions

    One of my greatest joys as an artist is the sharing of my love of art with my children. My youngest child never misses an opportunity to deliver custom-made "to: Mommy-mail". She recently paired up a polymer clay heart that she made (age 6) with a letter that she wrote to me. Needless to say, they will both end up...

    Your Kids Can Teach You About Clay

    ..but you have to be willing to listen! When my boys were in grade school, it was tradition in California that in the 4th grade they all built a mission or something reflective of Junipero Serra era of our state history.  Well, my son came home and announced that he was building the original Royal Presidio of San Diego and...

    A Treasure from Germany

    It's not like I could ever find anything with my kid's names on them when they were little..Tahichi and Kojiro are not exactly common names in the USA (or Japan really either).  But look at what my dear clay friend Anke Humpert sent me from Germany! It's one of her fantastic graffiti bracelets that says "Tach&Kojiro"!  I finally have something...

    Plant inspiration.

    One obvious source of inspiration is all the beautiful plants around us. Some have great textures, others stunning colours. Somewhere I read that green goes with every colour because natures colours are almost always mixed with green, maybe that is true. Again your mobile phone with a camera is your best friend. Flowers are ofcourse a BIG source of inspiration...

    I'm demoing at the International Retreat next month and I've agonized all week on how to get all of what I want to demo into one photo.  Trying to pick just ONE photo of what I'm going to demo is tough!
