11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mix-media Skeleton Super Mutant on: March 01, 2014 08:20:03 AM
I made this for the "Loyal Mutant Swap" for Ludi

The head and eyes in the wings are made of polymer clay. The structure is wire and clay "bones" with some stuffing. The mutant is suppoed to be cats and dinosaurs and animal skulls/skeletons  (the skull is a sabertooth so qualifies for all three... sort of) mushrooms (there are tiny mushrooms growing out of cracks in the skull) insects (the eyes are insect-inspired) Birds and frogs (the body is half swan half frog) and she likes old school horror movies and H.P. Lovecraft. I tried interpretting old-school horror by puting the human eyes in the wings as well as integrating some of her personal taste by making the wings pieces of fabric that seem sort of period style and her favorite colors. the entire structure is supposed to be semi-lovecraft-inspired.

Thanks for looking!
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Faux Trophy Head Necklace Hanger on: December 27, 2013 09:00:49 PM
I made a necklace hanger for my friend who likes taxidermy out of cheap toys and some wood.

It took a lot more work than I expected; First, the dollar store toys I bought started melting... so those were a no-go... then I wasn't finding enough variety of hollow toys... I ended up with still needing one more and ended up just drilling right through a swordfish... lol. The rest of the toys are held on by first covering the screws in polymer clay and baking it, then puting them in the cavities of the painted-white toy heads and filling it up with hot glue... then pre-drilling the holes before twisting the animals heads on. The screws also happened to go too far out the back of the board and I had to file them down. It was all pretty insane but it ended up looking really nice and polished looking so I'm pretty proud of it.


My friend that I gifted this to sent me this picture of it in action lol so hear you go:

13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dolly and Bear on: December 27, 2013 08:50:49 PM
I made these quick as presents off of a few things I've seen on the internet.
Here http://lollidolls.wordpress.com/ and here http://www.flickr.com/photos/jmaranez/2304574664/in/faves-vaide/ although those were just inspirations, however I take no credit for the initial designs. If someone has a problem with it I'll take them off. I made up the patterns from what I saw and made up the face for the doll.

Thanks for looking!

15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Tree Ornaments and Pom-Pom Trees on: December 17, 2013 11:36:24 PM
I made a bunch of what I was deciding was "vintage-style" ornaments this year and am still working on some so I thought I'd show people! I made a few pin-in-styrofoam-ball style ornaments:

Done by wrapping ribbon around the ball first...

Then I made these Pom-pom trees... some ready-made cones and some paper mache... and pom poms.

Another pin-in-styrofoam-ball style ornament

A pipe cleaner santa

and a felt gingerbread house! Cheesy

16  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Cuttlefish Fused Glass Mosaic Light Box on: September 09, 2013 07:02:13 PM
I made this light box kinda just randomly at my (sort of) local studio and really quickly put this together. I'm pleased with it for how fast I made it (within two hours) and I think it's super cute! The lightbox part is made from a shadow box from Michael's.

Thanks for looking! If you need any information on how it was assembled I'd be happy to tell you.
17  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Abstract Woven Wall Hanging on: August 30, 2013 09:36:24 PM

I was experimenting with weaving about a year ago and decided I would make my mother a wall hanging and I suppose I got bored with it and thought I should make the wall hanging longer and straight at the bottom. Recently I started weaving again and I saw my unfinished hanging and thought... why not tie off the ends and hang it. SO... there you go. My mother loves it.

Thanks for looking!

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Three-Toed Sloth Stuffie on: August 04, 2013 05:44:03 PM
I decided I needed more sloth in my life so I made this:

The faux fur was originally white. I dyed it with sharpies like in this tutorial: http://fursuit.livejournal.com/2826105.html

The face and claws are made of polymer clay that I painted then covered with liquid polymer clay to stand up to lots of wear. I then basically hot-glued them on. They are pretty well on there I would say. This is the first time I've tried doing anything like this guy ever. I even made the pattern for the body. Its arms are jointed with safety eyes because that's what I had. If you want a pattern for it I will certainly give it to you.

Weeeelll thanks for looking!
