11  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.



12  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)
Blueberries
Cranberries
Raspberries
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


Blueberries


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.

This little guy has been done for some time now I finally got around to taking pics of him. He is sculpted from polymer clay and the fins are made from liquid polymer clay.

It's been a while since I have posted any of my sculptures here, so I thought that I would share some pics of my latest unicorn. I just put some of the finishing touches on the base yesterday. The unicorn has been finished since August last year.

He is completely hand sculpted from polymer clay and epoxy over a wire and foil armature, and hand painted with acrylic paint. No molds were made or used in the making of this sculpture. All of the plants except the flowers were hand made from polymer clay. The hair is Tibetan lamb's wool.

The unicorn is 12 in long and around 6 1/2 in tall without the base. The base is 9x7 in wooden oval.
 
There is a brass peg in his base, which fits into a hollow brass tube in his leg, that allows him to stand on one leg.











Close up of the snail, if you didn't see him. He is about 1 cm long. I sculpted him too (but not the shell, it is real), he even has eye stalks and feelers or what ever they are called.

This was supposed to be a "quick", "fun" Roll Eyes project I had so many problems with it, that it has taken me years to finish.

 




It is sculpted out of Super Sculpey, Kato, and epoxy. It is painted with acrylic paint, colored chalk, mica powder, and glitter. The eyes are Austrian crystal, the mane is dyed Tibetan lamb's wool, the fins are made of cellophane and wire. It has been coated in clear resin for a durable glossy finish. It is 6 in long and 3 1/2 in tall.

The eyes are very reflective and seem to glow in the right light




17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Xmas gift on: December 29, 2010 02:07:53 PM


Xmas present I made for my cousin.  I bought the wrong length zipper by mistake, it was a little short, but I made the zipper tabs a bit longer, it turned out ok. I was rushing to get this finished on Christmas eve, so it isnt perfect, but I am happy with how it came out. Out of the 3 clutches I made this one came out the best.




Here's the pattern http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/04/gathered-clutch-tutorial.html

I found the pattern through Craftster, I loved the ones that others posted here, and had to try making one. I am new to sewing, and this pattern was easy to follow, but I did have one problem with it, the lining fabric should be cut a little smaller than the pattern recommends. My first 2 clutches turned out really wrinkled on the inside, when I followed the pattern, so with this one I made the lining smaller, and it looked so much better. I also added an extra card holder to my clutches.

Nougatgee asked to see the unicorn in my avatar, so here he is









He is sculpted from Super Sculpey, Super Sculpey Firm, and epoxy, over foil and wire. Painted with acrylic paint. His mane and beard are made from fox fur, and the hair on his hooves and tail, is Tibetan lamb wool. Hes about 8 in tall from hoof to the tip of  the horn. Modeled after an Arabian horse, his coat is fleabitten gray.

I dont keep track of how long it takes to finish a sculpture, but it takes weeks and many hours of work. Basically I just keep working on them, until I am somewhat satisfied with how they look.
19  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Goldfish Ornaments on: December 18, 2009 01:38:25 AM


My 2nd one. Its 2 3/4 in long. The fins aren't quite as yellow in person. I had planned on making it solid orange, but it had a few small dark specks imbedded in the clay, so I covered them with black paint  Undecided.

I keep it next to the fish tank, my goldfish seems to like it. I left it on my dresser after taking pictures of it and when I brought it back to put next to the tank my goldfish was really excited. Tongue






This is my fist one. Its 2 in long.  It kind of just happened, I didn't really know what to do with a piece of scrap wire and epoxy, but I covered it with some pearl clay and started sculpting. I was happily surprised when it turned out to be a portrait of my goldfish  Cheesy, though I am still a bit disappointed that the fins curled Sad. Its still not finished, I havent sculpted the eyes or the mouth yet.



20  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My 3rd unicorn is finally finished =D _LOTS OF PICS!_ on: April 22, 2009 04:00:13 AM
I started him last year, he has been sitting on a shelf mostly untouched since then. I am so glad that I finally got him finished, so that I can concentrate on getting my other sculptures done. Cheesy

He is made out of a mix of super sculpey and super sculpey firm, his horn, tail, and ears are made out of a flexible polymer clay to help resist breakage. He is painted in acrylic paint, colored chalks, and sealed with a satin finish. His mane and tail are made from mohair. He is about 4 1/2 in tall, and 7 in long from horn tip to hoof. He is modeled after an Iberian horse. His coat is dapple gray with fleabites.

anyway I hope you like him. He is my favorite so far  Grin

LOL looks like he is asking himself "what the heck did I just stept in"  Shocked
