1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Rockabilly Rose Bracelet & Brain Cameo (Picture weighty) on: January 20, 2012 04:44:44 PM
Decided I needed a new bracelet and more zombiesque jewelry so here they are Smiley Everything on the bracelet are made from polymer clay, the rose, all the beads and the skulls at the ends.  Smiley Also the brain glows in  the dark Smiley

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zombie Hand Brooch & Skull Beads on: January 17, 2012 09:19:30 AM
My first attempt at sculpting hands. Clearly the best thing to start with was a bloated, amputated, zombified hand. You cant see it too well in these pictures but Ive carved away some of the flesh to expose muscle and bone. My camera is being evil so the side detail isn't so clear Sad

Didnt come out too badly Smiley Just needs glazing now.

Also my first attempt at sculpting skulls, I seem to like making things in miniature as these are 1cm wide, again not to bad.

Note: I apologise for the pictures coming out so yellow, my lightbox has died and my house seems very yellow.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / 9th Doctor Who and Snowy TARDIS on: December 24, 2011 03:31:54 PM
My home made Christmas present for my fella Smiley

A crocheted TARDIS topped with snow for a Christmasy feel.
And my attempt at the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) who is the fella's favourite Doctor.

The TARDIS is a Christmas ornament and can be hung from the tree while the mini Doctor can be hung from his keys.

Didn't come out as badly as I expected. I hope he likes them!

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Steampunk Ragamuffin Robot Embroidery on: December 23, 2011 01:09:23 PM
A part of the swap parcel I sent. I'm quite happy with how he has come out. The satin stitch was used alot in this one. Rivets were done with an evil metallic thread which I now hate. In place of his ever present patch is a real watch cog Smiley





6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Steampunk Alice In Wonderland Bag Charm (pic weighty) on: December 23, 2011 12:51:53 PM
I recently did a personal swap and here is part of it Smiley Didnt come out exactly as I wanted, I was originally recreating the scene where Alice met the caterpillar and he evolves into the butterfly, but Alice got damaged and I dont have any blue polymer clay left so Ive had to substitute her. I knew my partner loves mushrooms so I knew I had to involve it somewhere, hence this scene.

You cant see it well in this picture but I aged the look of the pieces with acrylic paints and high pigmented eye shadows (I have no mica powders). Oh and for the caterpillar's hookah I used a bulb.

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Steampunk Soot Sprite on: December 23, 2011 12:33:20 PM
I recently did a personal swap (yey!) and for it we had three themes; Lenore, Alice In Wonderland and My Neighbour Totoro. Another part of the swap was that everything had to be steampunked in some way. So here is one of them Smiley


The soot sprite from My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away. Since my partner wanted a steampunk theme, I decided to give him a pair of flying goggles. Now he is ready for his time hiding away on dirigibles.

The soot sprite himself is crocheted while the goggles are made from tops and an old leather belt I cut up, the head band is a brass chain. Acrylic paints aged the lenses.

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Plate of Macaroons Ring, New Steampunk Hat Ring, Lenore Keyring on: October 11, 2011 11:16:59 AM
More practise Smiley Some have come out better than others really. Still happy with the results so far Smiley Wonky picture fail =/






Logic dictates that trying to draw eyes onto clay should be done when 1 yr old nephews are asleep and not running around, oops =/
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Gloss in the UK on: September 30, 2011 10:22:01 AM
I'm really sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm not on my laptop and have to be quick.

I've recently started using polymer clay but where I buy my clay from doesn't seem to sell any form of gloss (or glaze, whichever). I then went into my local art shop and was advised to buy this clear glaze they have, and sadly it doesn't work. The pieces I've used it on are still sticky three days later and even a second coat (I read somewhere about it sticking to the first layer instead of the clay, so it doesn't react and won't be sticky anymore) this didn't work either.
I've read that people use Rustoleum, but when I've found it, it doesn't say whether it is water based or not.

I live in the UK and never seem to be able to find the products I've seen others use so I was wondering. To any UK clayers, what do you use to gloss your pieces?

Thanks in advance Smiley
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bursting with Tentacles & Steampunk Hat Ring (Picture heavy) on: September 28, 2011 12:06:38 PM
Still trying my hand with clay. Don't think these have come out too bad. The first is proof of my love to tentacles Smiley The second is my attempt at something steampunky. Plus hats. I like hats.
