Everything on this little guy is made from clay. EVEN THE EYES! It's not as hard as it looks. Give it a try and experiment with your favorite characters Smiley

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Fake (Faux) Purple Agate Pendant (link to video tutorial) on: September 05, 2014 07:03:34 AM
Do you like sparkly agates? This fake geode technique can be used with your favorite colors. Use nature to inspire you! I used Premo accents for this project, but if you have regular clay and some eyeshadow or mica pigments, you will get the same sparkly effect.

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Back to School Locker Magnets (rock, paper, scissor) on: September 01, 2014 06:40:07 AM
Back to school always reminded me of playground dilemmas, but we always fixed those issues with a game of rock, paper, scissors. Turn these cute little guys into magnets, charms, earrings, or anything you want!

This is a really neat project! The fish are so cute. Where did you get the rounded tip tools you use in your videos?

ebay! Just search "dotting tools". They were 2$ for 5 different sizes Smiley
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Miniature Fish Tank/ Aquarium (video tutorial) on: August 22, 2014 01:51:28 AM
I love aquariums, but I don't like the maintenance required to look after one! Hence, this miniature fish tank! This project seems difficult, but it's quite easy! The solid "water" is clear epoxy resin. I love using this medium with polymer clay; they complement each other very nicely.

working on my recreation of this project.

Unfortunately to due accessibility issues (aka my parents don't want the house roaring with heat from the oven and the polymer clay is a bit stinky when being baked and my mom is very sensitive to smells,) I'm making mine out of air dry clay.  UGH!!! That's all I can say.  Air dry clay is fun to work with but man can it be fiddly!! The poor hands on my Groot and very delicate and I had to opt out of doing the spikes for the roots at the top of his head.  I've come up with another option tho.

Here's some in progress pics


First this is the base of the body with part of the wire skeleton I made to help support it.  The wire extends beyond the clay and into the base.

Next is the base and arms covered with long and short strands of clay for texture.  This was pretty fiddly and time consuming.  The hands are a bit bigger than I wanted but I'm okay with that.

He has a head!!!  This was the hardest part to get right.  I followed along with the tutorial but had difficulty with the eyes (I ended up just making a circular indentation rather than hollowing out a section for another piece. I had to opt out of the branches on the head so I've got wires sticking out and after it dries and is painted, I'm going to glue moss to the wires for the head.

Overall I think he's looking pretty cute. I'll post more pics after he's dried completely (a day or so) and he's been painted and mossified lol.

Oh the green thing hes sitting is is a piece of foam that fits perfectly into the top of a 4" clay pot when flipped around the other way.

Looking good! Can't wait to see the final piece!! =D
