31  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fun Little Sugar Plum Fairy on: December 27, 2012 08:28:59 PM
I love these cute dolls made with pipe cleaner on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/camamiel?ref=seller_info .) I'll totally  buy a doll from her but in the mean time I couldn't resist making my own. I hope that isn't really a problem since it's just for me. I named her Plumentina and I'm also currently working on a few others...



Here she is sitting with little boots.



and I made some fairy wings out of wire:



I'm pretty proud of her but I'm not sure where I want to put her in my room... I have too much stuff! lol
32  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Grandparents Photo Ornament on: December 20, 2012 07:07:26 PM
I saw rackycoo's Holiday Photo Ornament ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417991.0 ) and I HAD to make something like it. Unfortunately I don't have all the little knick-nack type things to construct from like wooden blocks or wheels or anything so I constructed the base out of cardboard then covered it in papier-mache... because for some reason I think papier-mache solves everything. Then I painted it in gold acrylic. I DID find some wooden nobs so that helped. Then I found more tiny nobs and decorated the crap out of the whole thing. yaaaay!






I put both sides of my family's grandparents on it as a small memorial; two pictures of my dad's parents and two pictures of my mom's parents. I think my dad will especially like this. I can't wait until he comes home and sees it! Thanks, rackycoo, for posting such awesome crafts!

33  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Angler Fish Stained Glass Piece on: December 02, 2012 10:11:14 AM
This is my third stained glass piece. It's my own design and I am pretty proud of it! An angler fish is a deep sea fish that has an appendage that actually glows in the deep sea dark to attract fish to eat. That is what the marble hanging from the wire is. The other strange thing is that this is the female. The male is actually a much smaller less intimidating fish that when it finds the female, bites her, and his jaws begin to meld into her body. His body is eventually absorbed by her and she can use his parts to mate when she sees fit. That is what the long piece with the clear marble and fin on the bottom is; it's her husband!

34  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My Dapper Fish Man on: November 13, 2012 11:08:26 AM
I made this fish out or polymer clay after a similar drawing of mine but added a moustache. Pretty slick, huh?  Wink



My original thought in this was the idea that all mammals are in a long string of evolutionary process related to fish. This makes me happy to know that we come from these creatures. That as well as others would think that it was rather disturbing, hence Mr. Fish also has a very creepy look about him. I know that if I were fishing and pulled that aboard I would not exactly be thrilled by any means. It is meant to be interesting and disturbing.

This is one of my first attempts at really doing much sculpting with polymer clay, as well as with coloring with it. I would have liked it to be more "Magical" looking and more realistic but am new to this craft and am not necessarily sure about what people do with it to make it that way. It would be good to know what people use to add fine details... what sort of powder I see people using and what gives an Item a finished look. Any interesting tidbits on knowledge would be useful.


Here's a few more different angles of him:










Thanks for looking.
35  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / "Go For It!" Fairy in a Whimsical Cabinet: "Good Vibes" charm on: November 06, 2012 04:15:14 PM
My mother's friend and my sort-of aunt has had a hell of a rough year. I can't even imagine... so I decided I would make a charm-type bobble deal with a message on it. I started off with just thinking I was going to decopauge a wooden heart ornament but... as usual I can't leave well enough alone. I built up the heart   , then I started making a box within it, then doors... then a fairy... well... I'm proud of it and she loves it! And guess what? She is already making strides towards the better.

The heart "cabinet" itself is made of cardboard and papier mache. It was painted in acrylics and a gold metalic marker. The fairy is made of polimer clay, yarn for hair, and has articulated legs and feet.
.


The fairy is supposed to be a little folksy and imitative of cutesy inspirational stuff you see in stores. Because... usuallly I get a little weird with my crafts so I wanted to make sure she likes it. I messed up on her  face  a little when I wanted to add the smile and eye dots so I painted the whole face over... hopefully it doesn't look too bad. Lol

Fairy ontop!



Just the cabinet delio itself. You can actually just shove the fairy's feet in there at an awkward angle if you want. Lol

Thanks for looking!
36  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lady Bug Tag Blankie on: October 26, 2012 09:00:30 AM
I made this for my Boss who's wife just had a baby girl. I have seen these before somewhere and thought it would be unique and quick. It was! He hasn't been in yet so I haven't seen his reaction.



Kind of a bad picture but I thought I'd post it anyway.
37  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The poseable Red Panda Doll on: October 26, 2012 07:21:32 AM
I made this red panda art doll in a Zoo Animal swap. I was working on trying to make it ball-jointed but after one failed attempt I realized i didn't have enough time. So I re-sculpted it for a little movement. This is my first time really sculpting anything but i think i did a good job. What do you think? Cheesy





Close up of the face







He's about six inches tall, is made of polymer clay and is held together with strong elastic.



Lol. A little tail shot.
38  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Magic Stained Glass Kaleidoscope! on: October 19, 2012 11:02:52 AM
I made this Kaleidoscope in a class. It really pleases me. The circle of marbles and glass at the end spins so you get different views. I think it's really magical.



Here is a picture of the view:



I know of a website that has a kit for it and instructions if anyone wants it.
39  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Gnome And Mushrooms Stained Glass Lamp on: October 19, 2012 10:55:12 AM
This was my first stained glass project. I wanted to make something in my own design and I wanted something useful and unique. There are definitely some imperfections but I'm proud of it.

Here it is in its place in my room.











Sorry for the bit of mess in the pictures. Maybe I'll get better ones later?

Anyway, thanks for looking!
