I've been loving all of your work, but Jack Sparrow gets my vote for "Best Yet".

This rocks - click!
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Confession: I am a chronic sculpey burner... on: April 17, 2008 09:03:41 PM
The first time I worked with Sculpey, I burned it pretty bad. But never mind that the whole kitchen was filled with a sickly-sweet smelling smoke (it reminded me of Teflon, which I have also accidentally burned and is poisonous). I hope you have good ventilation

If all else fails try using a toaster oven. It limits the size of what you can make but should be less "temperamental" (and its better than turning your kitchen into a biohazard zone).

I think it depends on what it is youre making, and the look you are trying to go for.

Personally I paint almost everything but Im a control freak when it comes to color. I need the versatility and color range that painting allows, despite the pain of cleaning hardening plastic out of brushes.

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Happy Year of the Rat on: February 07, 2008 04:01:42 PM
February 7 is the first day of the new year, according to the Chinese calendar. So I thought I'd sculpt up a little version of this year's zodiac animal.

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / A Happy Little Monk on: February 03, 2008 07:07:18 PM

I started this project intending for it to be a little Jizo figurine, but it wasnt turning out the way I wanted. So it became a happy, baby-faced, and strangely disproportionate little monk instead.

He stands 1 inches tall.

Thanks for looking!
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / A knitter's first crochet project on: January 31, 2008 04:00:09 PM
For my first ever crochet project I wanted something simple and fun, and found a great pattern right here on Craftster.

Meet Seasick Sinclair: Cephalopod Debonair.
It takes a rare talent to remain slick and sophisticated while green with nausea! He also has a secret obsession with Slash. The top hat is my own creation, the octopus pattern is here:

I was so happy with how he turned out I just had to share!   Smiley

I figured you must have been a breeder! Im not, I just love having birds as pets. Theyre so smart, and have really fun personalities - even when theyre grumpy! They really are sweet and cuddly, although my little whiteface is such an alpha-male that he doesnt get along with my boyfriend sometimes. Cheesy   
And hes got an extremely annoying song that he does to woo his girlfriend ALL the time, complete with a dance of sorts, or at least a pose. I modeled it, although the previous pic didnt show it too well. Here it is:

I call it the Cobra. Sometimes he stands on one foot and ducks his head under a wing at the same time. It's pretty cute.

Anyway, thanks for the compliment!

Thanks, everyone.

Are the eyes the plastic kind you put into plushes or did you make them yourself??

It's all paint and clay. The eyes have a little dot of white to mimic shine.

Looks like you've got a whiteface pied (all white with dark gray back), a lutino (yellow and white), a whiteface cinnamon pearl (white with gray scalloping), and a regular whiteface (white face, gray breast, dark gray back).
Since all of them are realistic in their color scheme - are these modeled after a particular flock?

Wow, you nailed it!
And yes - it's my flock.  Smiley

Theyre almost as cute as their living counterparts, and much less mischievous!

Super Sculpey and acrylic paint are the ingredients.

Thanks for looking.

This sculpture is amazing! Incredible detail, and likeness!

You rock.  Smiley
