this is certainly not beginner's work.  the phoenix I made was beginner's work.  your stuff is more like professional work!  it looks like you've been doing this for YEARS!  you could give Christi Friesen a run for her money!

I think I'll be wisting the steampunk-looking wings.  they're my favorite.  Smiley

THe dragon eye is wonderful, wish I could do things like that. I'm still trying to figure out how to make Winnie the Pooh, lol, so it'll be a long time before I reach your calibur.

You guys are awesome for confidence!  Grin I really did just pick the clay up in April....I'll admit I'm an info hound and did lots of research first, mostly to figure out what I liked, not just styles but also techniques. I used to design painted woodcrafts so coming up with original things is not new to me but this is entirely different from painted woodcrafts  Tongue I had been thinking about picking up polymer clay for about a year before doing it, it was an itch and was not going away, do you all get those? So in spring this year I went nuts at the library and with my michaels coupons (buying one tool each week!) I really feel like it brings something out in me that could never get to the surface before, I really love this stuff. I love how you get to add things to it and texture it. I really look forward to a couple of years from now and what I might be making, it's exciting.

I LOVE Christi's stuff! I was inspired by her and so many others, I feel like a product of everyone who's ever posted their polymer clay projects on the internet because I think I looked at them all, on flickr, on google. Every single one was inspiring in some way.

I use a lot of mica powders, that's where the metallic look comes from. I really love the mica powders but am going to make an effort to do more with less of it, to have things look more real? I have a lot of learning to do as far as techniques go and patience in mixing colors, but I make up for it in fun lol

One thing I really think helps my pieces pop is the antiquing, I highly recommend anyone who isn't antiquing, to try and get comfortable with it, the difference between a piece with and without is like night and day. And one thing I know I cannot do is make replicas of things, so I don't even try, you've just got to be yourself and make things you think are cool.

Thank you everyone for all the compliments, you all rock! To tell you the truth I feel like I fit in here more than on other forums.
