2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / polymer clay rings on: July 28, 2015 11:48:50 AM
been making rings lately. i was trying to create a boulder opal effect. its not quite as realistic as i wanted but i really like the effect.

despite the chunky look they are surprisingly comfy and the oval shape mean they can be worn two ways

this ring was made by mixing embossing powder with translucent clay. a cane forms the faux ammonite. i think the black rock is too dark a background  Undecided  i think it would work much better with a paler faux rock.

bit of a break from faux rock effects. its too chunky to be comfortable when worn on any but the index or little fingers, but it was fun to play around with shapes.
translucent clay mixed with a little oil paint and ultra fine glitter.

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / fun with face canes on: July 23, 2015 11:01:47 PM
i made a lip cane for a particular project and had loads left over and since id never got round to making a full face cane i gave it a go. not as complex as my usual canes but good fun Smiley
i cut slices from the face cane then made a neck from a sheet of flesh coloured clay. the hair is made from a sheet of clay made of colours stacked on top of each other. i cut very thin slices from this and positioned it, and the rolled it smooth until there was no visible joins or lumps. doing each piece as you lay it rather than  placing all the hair then rolling results in less distortion. the lace cane for the mask i cut a little thicker to make it easier to position then carefully sliced off a tiny bit as a time until it was thin enough to roll smooth.
i made these into pendants

i made a lace cane

the original cane:

 eye and lip canes

i had to reduce the face cane but the ends made me laugh

and those eyebrows were too good to waste! unfortunately it plaqued badly around the neck (seems to be a problem for fimo flesh all of the pieces have one or two of those little pale moon shapes but this was really bad Sad was my favourite piece too Undecided  )

lip beads made with some of the left over lip canes

i decreased the amount of deep red in this cane, i was trying to make it quicker to make and simpler.

so many imaginative pieces Shocked
thr key looks so realisticly metalic. i thought it was a found piece at first.
love that yellow and purple circle necklace and the greens, blues and yellows wooly piece is just awesome. it looks like something under the sea, i really like the  woven/stitched/embroidered patches on the cord
