1  Re: Toggles out of Clay? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by _assassin on: January 24, 2010 10:57:32 PM
I'm terrible when it comes to explaining things, so instead I made a little image to do all the talking for me. Since your friend is allergic to metal, I assume you'll be using lots of natural and rubber type cording, correct? What I do is this...

Basically, you'll end up making beads and glue them in place. This works extremely well with rubber cording. And you can always make the 'bead' that fits through the loop more decorative so it could be more pendant-esque. Hope this helps!

2  Zero From Nightmare Before Xmas in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by _assassin on: August 13, 2009 11:46:47 AM
I have a friend who is completely batty over Nightmare... Well, anything Burton for that matter. So for her birthday back in May (yes, I'm a procrastinator at times), I decided to make her Zero for her desk at work.

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy my bit of procrastination as much as Nicole did!

3  A light in the attic.. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by _assassin on: March 18, 2009 07:33:38 AM
A Light in the Attic

There's a light on in the attic.
Through the house is dark and shuttered,
I can see a flickerin' flutter,
and i know what it's about.
There's a light on in the attic.
I can see it from outside,
And I know you're on the inside...lookin' out.

Progress Shots:

All Done!:

This was the very first poetry book I ever received as a child. In fact, it was a birthday present from my older sister. I fell in love with Shel Silverstein at that point.

Ever since then, I've always wanted to make something Silverstein-inspired... Since I could never think of something to have tattooed on my body, polymer clay was my next best bet.

Other than the eggshell inside, hemp cord and acrylics.. It's entirely made out of polymer clay.

4  Penguins & Frog figures in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by _assassin on: September 03, 2008 12:35:44 AM
Two of my best friend's co-workers finally stopped drooling over her penguin figure I made her for her birthday, so they finally put in teir requests. They didn't give me too many details just "I want penguins" & "I want frogs".So, I went off in my own little direction and the gals loved them.


My favorite, the penguins.

He just cracks me up every time I see his little blank stare.

Hope you guys like them!

5  Skeleton Hand Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by _assassin on: September 02, 2008 03:12:35 PM
I love this time of year.. When all stores carry neat little Halloween decorations. I came across these little bad boys the other day and nearly bought the store out. I think I have a problem... but the possibilities are endless! So far, I've only turned one pack into necklaces. The hands are awesome cause they 'click' together making them the coolest clasps ever. I'm truly in love... And once my toddler goes to bed, another pack of these little beauties have a date with my Dremel.

Let me know what you guys think!

6  Tons of Charms & Pendants = Lots o' pictures in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by _assassin on: August 05, 2008 04:07:45 PM

mmm.. meat


You would never guess that this octopus was once a mix of glow in the dark and translucent sculpey. My toaster oven at work is the mouth of hell and burns everything within 2.5 minutes. I rather enjoy what happened to it.. it gave it a really neat texture and well.. looks awesome in black, especially with the silver.



This was pure genius on my behalf... I finally found a use for silica beads you find in new shoe boxes and other crazy random things. And I also found out that when coating them in sculpey glaze sometimes makes some of them explode. It kept me on my toes and totally turned out awesome.


This is my corporate-safe, cutesie skull. Most of the cubicle zombies think it's a cloud... No imagination, I swear. lol


Bubbly zombie hands are so cute Cheesy


First time experimenting with spider web cane.


Painting with poly clay is interesting. And I love this pendant, I want to make one in red now.


Inside the jar there's various shades of blue & pearl beads, along with a treasure map and other little sparkly do-dads. It's one of the cutest spur of the moment creations ever.


A cuppy cake for my daughter.. once she's old enough to finally wear it.


This thing is freakin' huge! I wear one constantly.


This one I'm thinking about putting on a hemp necklace, it's nice and chunky.


Yet another rather large pendant.


I <3 Jeffry Combs & mad scientists.


No comment is needed for this one... The cuteness says it all.


I truly do have a skull obsession


Phew! My pinky is tired of copying & pasting... Hope you like them.

7  Sushi & Chinese Takeout Explosion (img heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by _assassin on: August 05, 2008 01:28:04 PM
This is a collection of a nice-size chunk of all (my favorite) sushi/takeout related sculpey (and paper) creations from the past 2-3 years. I'm queen of procrastination and take forever to upload pictures.  Cheesy

Group photo.

My personal favorites are the bracelet (Which was my very first sushi/takeout experiment and my 3rd project ever using sculpey), the 2 small plates o' sushi charms and the little salmon egg thingys. I don't like eating the stuff, but it's so much fun to make. Whatcha think?

9  Chinese Take Out Gift in Completed Projects by _assassin on: February 21, 2005 12:26:16 AM
Thanks to the discount V-Day goodies at a local drug store (CVS to be exact), I found some nifty take out boxes that inspired the crap out of me. And hopefully will make a nice gift for a friend.

First off, the box that started it all. In it's original form.

After a nice coat of green paint, kanji and acrylic sealer.
love and..


Then, to one of the hardest parts of the gift, the sculpey fortune cookie.

So far that's all I have done. I'm working on origami orchids as well as felt sushi and a few other things to go inside. I just hope he enjoys it.
