The design for this project evolved by simply playing with clay, giving curiosity and serendipity the upper hand. But it is meant to be abstract, allowing the viewer to find the story that speaks to them. While I will outline techniques during this tutorial, artists are encouraged to use their own sense of creativity to make the design their own.

The birch artist’s panels were chosen to allow the finished product to be hung or stand independently on a flat tabletop or shelf. The sides of the panels can be left natural or painted as the artist desires. You can create one or more panels for your artwork!

We love that Sculpey is the perfect medium to embellish with! Have an old pieces that needs a make over? or want to add a little more to a store bought item? Sculpey is just want you need!

Here’s something fun and easy for all skill levels. For this bracelet I chose mica flakes, but you’ll want to try tiny, baked polymer clay cane slices, mylar confetti, glitter and shells.

This miniature can be used as a decoration for people who love architecture or miniatures. I came up with this design after looking at french architecture. It’s good to plan out the rooms and sketch a quick design before beginning. Always keep in mind the scale of the house, if you want it to be perfect a scale ruler will help with this.

I was staring into space thinking there should be a prettier name for a “wall hanging” than … wall hanging. I googled around until I found the French phrase pour le mur (“for the wall”) I had to smile when I heard it pronounced, because it sounds like a sexy version of “polymer”.

 

This project is a major creative funfest because it has so many possibilities.  For this one, I placed the paler embossed pieces on one side and the darker silk screened pieces on the other side to make it reversible; but you can mix them up in all kinds of ways.

This unique pendant can be worn with casual as well as office wear.  The touch of gold in the background of the image highlights the gold on the pendant.

Note: The paper used for my transfer is Hammermill (Inkjet or Copy Plus)  Do not use a recycled paper as they tend to have a very thin sheet of plastic between the paper fiber.

This project uses the new Sculpey® Silicone Mandala Mold!

These great bracelets started with a photo I took on my travels.  I converted it to black and white and started transferring to clay.  I love the results!

NOTE: I use the Sculpey Bracelet Blank for this project.  I remove the blank after baking and I can use the blank over and over!

I also use Hammermill Copy Plus paper for my transfers.  Basically, any true wood fiber paper should work.  I’ve found that recycled papers have a thin sheet of plastic in the middle, so they don’t transfer at all.

With a passion for nature and wildlife, my backyard serves as an excellent source for creative inspiration.  It is fun to bring a touch of the outdoors into the home by designing a jar terrarium.

Create a Narwhal to hold your phone for you while your hands are busy. If you like, you can build just the Narwhal to hold your phone horizontally. Or, if you want to add the waves and water, your Narwhal buddy can hold your phone in different directions.

I love the lacy look of liquid clay in these gorgeous Sculpey Mandala Molds; and liquid clay earrings are so light and comfortable to wear. For this project I used the Clear; but I couldn’t stop there. I made earrings like these with Sculpey Bakeable Liquid Clay in Tinted Translucent, Tinted Clear, White, Gold, Silver, and my favorite, Black. The black ones remind me of something you’d see on a Spanish dancer.

Learning about landforms is far more effective for children when they have hands on experience.  Through the designing and creating of a volcano, many elements and aspects can be identified.

NOTE: if you have a Clay Conditioning Machine, you can use it to make your layers flat and smooth!

For my inspiration I looked up “splash” images. I referred to the images to help me create shapes that were different from each other but still looked like water splashing. I thought this was the perfect icon for a coaster set.

You can write or color with Marvy Le Plume Permanent Markers on Ultralight (UL) before or after it is baked. This will give you a lot of versatility in the way that you choose to work on your project. The plume shape of the marker tips makes it so easy to create a dry brush effect across the top of the textures leaving the bright white of the UL to show off the details. I chose UL for this project because of how lightweight it is in creating a larger wall hanging.

I love doodling and so this project was really fun for me. I got to doodle both in oven bake clay and in markers.

I don’t know about you, but I adore weird looking stuff. In fact, my goal is to create something I’ve never seen before. Translucent clay always opens my mind and tickles my imagination. Try it over different colors and with different shaped cores; and I’ll bet you’ll get hooked on Translucent too.
