1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / little dog on: October 05, 2010 08:51:46 PM
i found it sooo difficult - in fact impossible to keep the white and black fimo clean - so i ended up using paint Smiley.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / maeve on: August 18, 2010 09:16:57 AM
maeve is going to live with my sister in scotland.
its a surprise so i'm not putting the pix up on my blog for a couple of weeks.

i made basic canes with silver in the centre  and blue or green metallic clay on the outside.  the tail part is made of silver fimo/sculpey then i sliced the canes and used them as scales.  when it was baked i added a little silver paint to the tail, tips of fin and hair.  and a little as eyeshadow/make up Smiley  then varnish.

as always the wires and beads were a real pain.... but i managed to get them stuck on without squashing too much out of shape....tho there were some emergency corrections....
she's 8 inches long.

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Amy on: August 10, 2010 11:41:01 PM
amy is a little fairy with copper hair.  i'm very pleased with the way the wings turned out.  i did brush her with eye shadow before baking not sure i like what little effect it made.... she's living with my parents.
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / problems at airport? on: August 03, 2010 10:18:35 AM
my son is visiting my sister in scotland next month and i'd love to make her a little fimo sculpture.  but it occurred to me  would he have any problems at the airport if i use a foil and wire armature??

ok - so no answer.  i'm considering making a shape out of clay and baking that  and adding clay onto that once its cooled...

has anyone travelled internationally with sculptures in their hand/luggage???
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / medusa on: August 01, 2010 05:37:39 AM
medusa is about 21/2 inches long from hair to chin.  i tried using shimmer eye shadow on the snakes but most of it vanished when i varnished it...

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / fishee on: July 27, 2010 03:20:41 AM
my fishee is approx 3 inches long.  solid fimo.  i had my first attempt at a cane and i sliced it to make scales.  the eyes were an experiment.  white discs with a hollow with a little black snake in it. then coloured deko-gel in it.
in the baking the side fins fell off and the tail got a bit discoloured so i disguised it with some gold paint - but i really like the result!!  and a little varnish on fishee's body.

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / angler fish on: July 22, 2010 07:48:39 AM
so here is my angler fish Smiley
he's made of a mixture of silver and a pink mix.  teeth and other pointy bits are wire.  there's also deko-gel on the tail and fins ,on the teeth,and a drop here and there.
the little fishies are in primary colours and varnished to contrast with the angler's subtle colouring.  and the star glows in the dark.
i used 'bake and bond' to stick all the fishes together and i'm sooo glad i did it from underneath cos the darn stuff remained visible!!

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / scrap critters on: July 22, 2010 07:40:27 AM
here are some critters made out of scraps of clay and unfortunate mixes.

they were made really quickly. Smiley

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / ssssnakessssss on: July 17, 2010 09:29:29 AM
here are the 2 snakesssss i made today.
the green one - tyson seems to have been bashed up a bit...Smiley
i made marks on it with a scalloped blade to look like scales (i hope)  and then brushed on and wiped off white paint.  and finally varnished.


the brown one - wallet - thinks he is so gorgeous - he'd better be careful.
i made a snake shape out of orange fimo.  in a thin sheet of brown fimo i made holes with a knitting needle and then pulled it a bit to make the holes larger.  i fitted it on the snake shape and made 'scales' with a round thingy.  i don't think it worked too well tho - oh well - oh then black paint wiped off and varnished.
