Made this treasury to give a shout-out to some of my fellow artisans in the Polymer Clay Artists Guild Of Etsy:

I agree, the lashes would be amazing! Even just using some costume lashes would make it *zing!*
Is it glow in the dark or is it just the color of the clay? Every time I see that color I automatically assume it is GitD.
Very well done.

actually, NOT glow in the dark---but the color does appear that way. it is Sculpey Premo! Pistachio clay, so it just kinda looks like that Smiley

So cute and instantly recognizable. Loving the colors you've used, too. So very kitsch.

You should give her big bristly top lashes Cheesy

thanks!!! yeah, i thought of adding lashes too! might even build on the lashes out of clay so that they would be 3-D rather than just painting them on, but YES!

Hey Fellow Halloween-ies!

If you're like me, you love campy old horror films. I am really into making polymer clay masks lately, and I made THIS one out of the excitement of gearing up for Halloween!!! I make my masks from polymer clay as a vegan alternative to leather--usually I do dramatic fantasy-type stuff, but this was more a pop art kitsch project for me!









Thanks for looking! Happy halloween!

OMG that baby was beyond creepy  Shocked  I had to scroll past the pictures quickly as I was sooooo creeped out. But the kitty is adorable (in a cool horror way!) I love his eyes they look so lifeless but also slighty alive!  Grin

ditto to what all of u said about the baby being creepy: i knew it was BORN for this contest (forgive the pun! baby...born...is this thing on?!)

what made the baby terrible is the extra long limbs it had for some reason--even before i knew exactly what i would make, i KNEW i needed to chop those arms off and shorten the legs.

as far as the clay eyes, i am 99% happy with them--eyes are hard: they always have to be *just* so...

I feel like the freaky baby's soul is trapped inside of franken kitty! Okay, maybe I've watched too much Supernatural! Love the whiskers btw.

funny you should say that the freakbaby's soul is still inside: i just realized that the original freak baby had "button eyes", and i actually ended up giving the franken kitty button eyes too! maybe the soul of the baby made me do it! Smiley

Wow! I totally would never have picked up that baby and tought Kittey. LOL You are seriously talented to make something so diffrent out of that thing, and it is now so cute

awwww...thanks so much for the feedback and kind words. when i first bought it, i did not know what it would become...but after staring at it for a day or two, i DID see the potential kitty inside: the round little belly was the seed of it all!

I am amazed at how you took off the arms and legs! very cool!

Yes, this was a very pivotal moment--i knew that if i hit the baby wrong, and the break was not even, i would accidentally destroy it, and have to find a new item to transform...that's why i used the PVC cutter shown in pic (red handle, next to the hammer) to create precision: set the PVC blade into the joint, then tapped the back of the PVC cutter with the hammer, for a more controlled break Smiley the baby was plaster, not ceramic, so this was not *too* hard!
