1  Sweet Shrink Plastic Jewelry (image heavy - may cause cavities) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by acrylicana on: April 01, 2008 05:36:26 PM
Ahoy hoy Craftsters!
I've ventured into the land of printing up my own shrink plastic charms. I'm seriously addicted. I feel the joy I felt as a small child watching them shrink up in my toaster oven. Cheesy First they're big, and then oh-so-little! AAAH! hahaha. Seriously, that excitement never fades.

(note: the middle cake is polymer clay and just felt like hanging out with all the plastic guys).

More Necklaces

Mobile Straps and Keychains

More Mobile Straps and Keychains

I herd you leik mudkips Mobile Straps and Keychains.

Post earrings.
I just got my ears pierced. In 6 weeks time, you know I'll be wearing some coffee mugs. Cheesy

Rings. I tend to wear adjustable funky rings daily. Smiley They make me happy.

And more rings.

Next time, I'm going to play with resin, glitter, rhinestones, sequins, and printing on both sides with shrink plastic. Smiley SO excited. That and new adventures in chain and accessories. Man, the possibilities are endless. There should be multiple warning labels on this stuff.

edit As this has been a common question, here's my answer:
YES, all of these were drawn from me. Many of the designs were taken from full scale illustrations of mine.
And the drawings were done on my computer with my tablet in adobe photoshop and illustrator.

2  Candies, Cakes, and Jeweled Things - Image HEAVY in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by acrylicana on: March 22, 2008 09:48:34 AM
Over my spring break I got busy with the clay (Fimo Soft). Seriously love that stuff.

While I love making charms and such from clay, I HATE the tedium of varnishing (Sculpey gloss). I do love the outcome, though (shiny shiny..oh my goodness). And it IS fun to peel off fingertips...~_o

Here's some jewelry made from the charms:

I tried baking the rhinestones with the clay (just for the hell of it). They went melty cool. Kept their shape, but lost the facets. Hahaha. Loved experimenting with it, though.

I meant to make licorice candy charms ages ago. I think it's been done often and is a logical conclusion for polymer clay candy. Coincidentally, my father gave me some All Sorts without knowing I made this bracelet during the week. Great minds, man. ~_o

Most important meal of the day. Mmm, fattening.

I made one of these for my aunt to give to my little cousin. I don't know what she thinks of it yet.

I think it's been apparent since my first post here that I have an odd affiliation with tp and poo. It's time to love things in a new way.

Making the layers on this made me SO SO happy. I love looking at pictures of baked goods and trying to imitate what I see. Often, it fails (and is thrown out, hahaha), but sometimes I think it looks OK to be shared. Smiley

I was doodling chocolate designs for some print media. Decided it'd be fun to make them out of clay too. The more I look at this, though, the more I think of flan. Glorious rectangular flan.

Toast Posts! (I like saying that, it makes me giggle).
I finally got around to making some post earrings. Smiley I'm tired of the dangleys.

He winks at you.
He's cheeky.

All I want ot do now is make little cake rings and be SUPER CAKE HANDS!

This is my favourite of all the cakes and pies I've made lately. I was working on it late at night and danced around when I ixed the kiwi colour that I liked. Cheesy SO excited.

I want to eat it, really. I think it'd be fun to try to bake a cake similar to this for my birthday. It'll probably be a disaster, but I can blame the ring.

I found gold paint. I got excited.

These rhinestones were glued on. And I added sparkles, which look weird when photographed sometimes. I need to work on that, b/c I love sparkles. *_* <- see, that proves the sparkle love.

There were other things I made, and I'll share those at a later date (I don't want to bog the universe down with photos).

Oh, I wanted to share my happiness of realizing that Dick Blick's prices on polymer clay are SO lower than Michael's or Joann's. Cheesy Seriously saved when buying large blocks of white and translucent.

3  Toilet Paper Roll Tote Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by acrylicana on: January 17, 2008 10:49:21 AM
Last semester I had a silk-screening class. This was apart of my final project. The outside of the tote, which measures...idk...10" x 12" or so, is cotton polyester blend with felt applique. The lining is white cotton with my design screen-printed on it. I had SUCH fun (and it was well tedious, since I didn't have a register to align the design while doing it).

Fun stuff. Smiley
I have the panels to make two more (one that's pink and one that's yellow), but haven't gotten around to making them yet. I think I will this weekend. I so have been wanting to share this for a while, but was waiting til I had all three done. I so couldn't wait any longer. hahaha.

"Chiipi Roru" is the name of the little toilet paper guy. I like making plushies, clay charms, and doodling him often. He's swell. And toilet-y.

4  Milk Carton Emoting Friends in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by acrylicana on: January 17, 2008 10:36:43 AM
Not "emo" milk cartons (although..that purple one...hahaha), but rather ones that exhibit an emotion of sorts.
They're made from felt, because I have a lot of it hanging around and decided it needed to be put into use aside from using it for pouches and applique on bags.

Also, I've been slightly obsessed with the personification of inanimate objects, especially in terms of beverages as of late. To the point where I draw and paint them often, and have to recreate those designs in as many media as possible...hahaha.

They're...I don't know 4 inches tall..3 inches wide. you can squish them in the palm of your hand (I say this because I'm holding the yellow one right now and doing that -- only because it's so nervous. hahaha. I like lining them up on the top of my monitor -- they stare at me).

I have plans for other beverages (a whole huge list) to be made into soft, felt friends (I swear I'm not lonely...hahaha).

Blah blah blah. I talk a lot. Cheesy Rock on crafty people with your craftiness.

5  Chocolate Candy Jewelry and Such in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by acrylicana on: January 17, 2008 10:24:01 AM
And such indeed.
It's been a bit of time since I posted here. I love lurking around, though. You crazy cats and your crafts -- oh, how I love them.

I've been on a chocolate charm making kick lately. Really have fun being silly with it all. Cheesy

All sorts of pastries and chocolates in that one.

I'm tired of winter already (it's too early to say that in Detroit), so I'm into bright colours and summery things right now. hahaha.

I used Fimo for all of the charms. I used to use Sculpey and Sculpey III (on the off chance you've seen that fortune cookie charm tutorial -- I was using Sculpey for it, which is fine), but I'm so in love with Fimo soft now. The COLOURS. Oh, man. Cheesy Bright and lovely.

I don't know about you guys, but I feel like I could post pictures here forever. Gotta stop at some point. Smiley

6  Medical Bag, Robot Pouch, Ghosties Tote and Swans! (image heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by acrylicana on: July 26, 2007 05:33:21 PM
The swan is special, let me tell you! ~_o
Let's begin.
First up is a medical bag design based on a couple illustrations (and clay charms) of mine Pouchy Designs.

Made from felt and cotton (lining). It measures 4.5" x 4". Fits phones and some digital cameras (i.e. the ones I have on my desk) quite well.

Musical notes inside! Whoo! Medical Musical! (Scrubs was totally nominated for 2 emmys for two of the songs from that musical episode -- awesome!).

And the back, where a felt heart becomes fabulous via sequins.

Next is my Bitty Love Bot friend (yeah, proper name, even!).
This guy is in purple (he's usually a teal or turquoise colour).

Same size as the one above. Also felt and cotton. Good times.

oooh, aaah.

Moving on - tote bags!

Ghostie design. Based on this illustration: Ghosties Design

It measures 10" x 12", made from cotton with felt applique, beads, sequins, and strappy trim stuff for a strap (2 at 3').

Inside. I love that fabric, I do.

Backside! (what a saucy bag)

And another tote bag!

Base on this illustration: Swan Vomit Rainbow

10" x 12", cotton with felt applique, beads and sequins and that strappy trim stuff for the strap (deja vu!).

Inside bit.


That's all from me for now.

7  Cute food, robots, and musical charms in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by acrylicana on: July 26, 2007 05:13:48 PM
Hey there cats and kittens.
It's been a bit of a while since I last posted that fortune cookie tutorial, and I've been rather busy with all sorts of charms. Here's some of my most recent.

These were super fun to make. I LOVE stripes. Totally fun.

Cherries are loads of fun to make.

I love me some Bitty Love Bots.

Tedsie Bear is my friend. Good times, that.

And finally, apple!

And that's all from me for now.

8  Tedsie and Bitty Love Bot in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by acrylicana on: July 14, 2007 07:38:37 AM
It's amigurumi toy time! Cheesy
First up, my lanky fellow Tedsie. He's based on this illustration of mine. This is only one of the many ways I'm adapting him into a variety of media.

6 inches tall.

Next is my little friend Bitty Love Bot. He's a bit of a gardener. If he had thumbs, they'd be green. He's also based on some doodles of mine seen here and here. He's been modified from the original concepts to something a wee bit simpler.

12 inches (or so..slightly larger depending on angle of head) tall.

I'm hard at work making friends for them now. Cheesy

9  Apple Mobile Pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by acrylicana on: May 24, 2007 11:52:00 AM
I made a mobile pouch (based off a drawing of mine) out of felt. ^_^
I really love felt right now.

It measures 4.5" x 5.5". Handsewn (b/c I'm old school like that). Snap closure.

The lining is plain white cotton.
I made one of these for my mom for mother's day (her request). ^_^

10  Chiipi Roru (TP Roll)Toy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by acrylicana on: May 24, 2007 11:47:23 AM
I have a slight obsession with drawing and making various TP rolls. I call him Chiipi Roru, and sometimes, he has poo friends that hang out with him.


Top view. Looks the same on the bottom too.

My own simple pattern and design. ooooh aaaah. ~_o
