I love it! Cheesy

I may just have to make one for myself. I have been needing a sturdy bag to haul around my craft stuff.
52  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A Bag For My Earring Display Rack on: February 27, 2014 10:16:01 AM
My earring rack needed something much safer/sturdier/nicer looking, than a plastic grocery bag to get my earrings safely to and from places.

I am pretty happy with how it tuned out  Cheesy, since I don't have a lot of sewing experience, and it was made on the fly without a pattern.

I used two quarter yard fabric strips. I was fortunate that I didn't run out of fabric mid project. When it was finished, all that was left of the fabric was 2 little scraps just big enough to make a strap for a button closure, I haven't added one but I may at some point.

It has a layer of quilt batting as interface material, and in the handles I used denim.

I was happy to find an iron on patch in my stash that matched the fabric  Cheesy

I made it just wide enough that when removing the earring rack from the bag, none of the french hook earrings get snagged and fall off.

I love the wild colors - especially the gold and purple one.  You should go wild more often!
The purple one is one of my favorites too  Smiley

Okay THOSE ARE AMAZING!!! I can't pick a favorite but my youngest daughter is begging for one now  Cheesy Such a  fantastic talent!

Thank you  Grin

57  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Alaska themed earrings on: January 28, 2014 11:49:05 AM
All my earrings are hand sculpted from polymer clay without the use of molds.

Earrings based on the berries that grow on the tundra in my part of Alaska.

Salmonberries (the big orange raspberries like berries)
Blackberries (not same as black raspberry type berries, these are round like blueberries)

Fireweed flowers which are common throughout Alaska

The orange triangle things are salmon dryfish, which in the summer is another common sight in western Alaska. Dryfish is sort of like fish jerkey. The salmon is filleted with the skin and tail attached (so that it is able to be hung to dry), then it is salted then hung to dry for a few days before it is smoked, it's pretty tasty.

Fireweed flowers


I wasn't able to get close up pictures of all my earrings, since my mom commandeered a bunch of them to show to her coworkers, and has yet to return them Tongue

These are a lot of fun to make  Cheesy

Sometimes I get bored or frustrated when working on my larger sculptures, so its nice to work on these quick projects and then get paint them wild colors Grin, since I usually paint my larger sculptures with more realistic horse colors.

they are about 2-3 in tall or wide

These are just some of my older pieces, I have a bunch more and some newer ones I haven't finished painting yet.

You might want to try a product called Testors Dullcote if you are having trouble getting the matte finish you want.

Strangely I've had a heck of a time trying to find this. Can't seem to find it in Ottawa. Though I suppose maybe miniatures online stores may have it. But I'm still trying to find it.

I have heard that it can be hard to find. Hobby shops like the ones that sell model kits would probably have it. I looked for it in big craft stores and didnt find it, but ended up finding some by chance at my local grocery store.

I prefer sculpting with Kato. It is much firmer than any of the Sculpey clays, and is not brittle like Sculpey after baking. I find translucent Kato easiest to work with followed by beige, the other more colored Kato clays seem to have a slightly different texture. I usually mix my clays with other brands, depending on how soft or firm I want them, sometimes I mix Kato with Super Sculpey to make it softer or with Sculpey Moldmaker to make it really soft.
