1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Merkitty paperclay on: July 11, 2010 06:09:46 AM
Sorry I've been away for so long. My wonderful hubby had back surgery and then we went through a round of colds, sniffles and just pain yuckiness. He's doing well and no more drippy noses.  Grin

I just finished my newest sculpture, Merkitty. I designed it from one of my aceos that I painted a few years ago. This one was a real challenge for me and I must admit I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I love, love, love working with paperclay. It lets me sculpt more complicated pieces then when I was sculpting in wax and making my own molds. I also like creating one of a kinds because recreating the same piece over and over makes my brain freeze ... lol



Sculpture is 9 3/4" tall and 6" wide.
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zombie head candy dish on: May 12, 2010 09:26:07 AM
My newest work is a Zombie head candy dish. I had been wanting to try sculpting lidded candy bowls but didn't have a clue as to how so I just starting playing around till I figured it out. This one turned out so gruesome and icky and I think it needs to have gummy worms in it. lol



Size is approx 5 1/2" tall x 5 1/4 wide. Sculpted in paperclay.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Food safe finish for paperclay? on: May 07, 2010 06:51:50 AM
I'm making some candy bowls from my paperclay and I'd like to make sure the final finish on the bowls interior is food safe. I'm painting the bowls with acrylic paints and normaly would use a polycrylic varnish for a protective finish but that's not food safe. I've been looking all over the internet for days and am not finding a food safe product that would work on paperclay.  Anyone know of a product that is food safe?
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Do you live with Dust Bunnies? on: April 15, 2010 07:20:01 AM
I do and I just caught one! I was doing my weekly cleaning, trying to vacuum under my bed when all of a sudden my vacuum got plugged with something. Great, I just vacuumed up another one of my hubbahubby's socks! Was I surprised to see what the vacuum really got plugged with! Yes, I had caught a sock alright but it was in the mouth of the biggest dust bunny I've ever seen! After I pulled him out of the hose all he said to me was, "What sock?"



Dust E. Bunny - "What sock?"
Size: 7 1/4 inches tall
Sculpted in Creative Papaclay

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Jack B. Rotten ornament on: March 17, 2010 01:24:24 PM
Jack B. Rotten is my new series of Halloween pumpkins that have a rather rotten attitude. These pumpkins are just plain not so nice and don't want to be anyone's jack-o-laterns.
 
This one is titled "What Kitty?". It's sculpted with Paperclay and is approx. 4 1/4" tall.





Thank you all for looking.
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Who likes clowns? on: March 03, 2010 06:43:01 AM
I finished this a few days ago. It's a mime snowman ornament and he's sculpted in paperclay. His collar is wired ribbon. I found oodles of all different color wired ribbons on sale after the holidays and bought lots and lots of rolls. Smiley

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / New Hearts and a Snowman on: February 11, 2010 10:57:16 AM
I've been away for a bit, actually out of town for the holidays and then busy, busy, busy. I finally managed to get a few new things made and would like to share them with you all.

I did 2 new heart pendants. They both are polymer clay. The one with snow has a real glass icicle bead that I have custom made for me to use in my art. The second heart has antique watch parts in it.



The Snowman is sculpted in Paperclay and also has one of my glass icicles in it. He stands 6 1/4" tall.



Thank you for looking.
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Let it Snow! snowman ornament on: December 18, 2009 12:43:12 PM
I just love the expression on his face, so content and happy with the new snowfall.

I had some custom glass icicles made for me to add to my sculptures and I think this one looks wonderful hanging from his nose.

Title: "Let it Snow!"
Ornament size: approx. 3" tall. With wire hanger 4" tall.
Sculpted with paperclay


9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Tophat Snowman and cardinal on: December 06, 2009 02:23:32 AM
This is the 6th ornament in my Snowman series. I think I like this one the best. It's sculpted in paperclay and from bottom to top of wire is 5 1/2". It's very light and hangs beautiful. I think that's one of the things I like about paperclay, it's so light weight when dry but very hard and it takes paints beautifully.

Title is "Home for the holidays"


10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / 2 New Snowman ornaments (just added one) on: December 04, 2009 07:44:22 AM
My muse sure is having fun these days. The little imp has me making Christmas ornamets but that's okay because the expressions on their faces make me giggle.




Opps, forgot to add, this is sculpted with paperclay over a strofoam ball. It's 3 3/4" tall, with wire it's 5" tall. Painted with acrylics and sealed with a polycrylic varnish.

I'm on a roll today. Didn't want to start another thread and become a forum hoggy (oink, oink) so I'm adding another snowman to this thread. This one is 3" tall, with wire 4". It's title is "Fa La La"
