1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Piggy on: February 09, 2016 04:48:22 PM
Wow, he's quite a babe!  (nyuk nyuk)

You can insulate the clay while baking to reduce browning:
Put a layer of polyester batting on your cooking tray and place the item on that (which also prevents shiny spots from the clay touching a hot surface), then cover with a second layer of batting.  Since I cook in a toaster oven (dedicated to crafts, not food), I put a layer of foil on top of the batting. 

Bake as usual, in a well-ventilated area.
I've used the same batting several times; it starts to get a little melty, but doesn't catch fire.  Keep a close eye on yours, just in case!

Thanks. This pretty much describes my usual baking process, I have small oven just for clay too Smiley
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Deer Fawn on: February 09, 2016 04:39:15 PM
Hand sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint.

Baby deer are just so cute. After I sculpted a sleeping one back in December, I had to sculpt another Cheesy

This little guy has been sitting unfinished in a box of sculpey since 08 Shocked, I finally got around to finishing him.

I haven't actually baked him yet, the clay has been heat set with a heat gun though. I expect that the clay will scorch horribly once he has been baked properly(and likely crack), since he was sculpted with super sculpey  Sad. So I thought that I would take pics of him now while the clay is still a nice even color.

He is about 3 1/8in tall and about 3 1/2in long.

I realize that you have probably gotten sharpie marks off by now, but I just wanted to add that rubbing alcohol works really well.

I always have some nearby when I am crafting. It is really effective and works on a variety of different things like ink, oil/acrylic paint, etc. or whenever soap, water, and scrubbing does not work, I usually will try rubbing alcohol. It is also good to have around for crafting related injuries lol.

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Forest Animal Shadowboxes on: January 04, 2016 10:46:27 PM
The animals are all hand sculpted from polymer clay without the use of molds, and painted with acrylic paint.

here they are together before I glued them into their boxes.

the animals are about doll house scale. The boxes are all 2 to 3 in tall and 2 to 4 in long.
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Horse Barn Shadowbox on: November 18, 2015 05:01:16 PM
I have had this idea for a while now, and I finally got around to making it into a reality. Smiley

The horse was hand sculpted from polymer clay and epoxy over a wire and foil armature, without the use of molds. The horse is painted with acrylic paint.

The horseshoes on the sides of the shadowbox were sculpted from polymer clay.

For the "barn", I dyed some craft sticks brown with fabric dye and glued them to the sides of a shadowbox.
