21  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Zombie House on: October 07, 2008 06:05:13 PM
I made this for the Halloween 2008 Swap.  I found the house at a thrift store, it was painted all flowery, so that had to go.  I used scraps of wood to board up the windows (That was pretty fun!)  I made the zombies out of polymer clay.  My favorite is the zombie crawling through the window. 

22  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / The Addams Family - Thing Jewery Box on: October 07, 2008 05:42:28 PM
I made this for the Addams Family Swap.  I tried using a hand plaster kit, but that turned into a complete disaster!  So I ended up using polymer.  I used clear nail polish to give the illusion of fingernails and I drew in palm lines.  I thought the jewelry box looked like Thing's box from the t.v. show.  It had a round picture frame on top of it to which I glued Thing to.

23  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Halloween Kitties on: September 23, 2008 07:21:27 PM
I made this for my swap partner in the Vintage Halloween 2008 Swap.  I took the idea from her wist, I am not sure where the original source came from.  I used acrylic paint for them, orange is not much fun to work with, it took many many coats.  I put them on a wood base and put my own twist on it by decoupaging a picture of fall leaves under them and decoupaged a bail of hay underneath the orange kitty.  I found the pumpkin at Goodwill.

24  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Paw Readings on: September 23, 2008 07:14:52 PM
I made this for my swap partner in the Vintage Halloween 2008 Swap.  I crafted from her wist, so I do not know where the original source came from.  I drew the stencils freehanded,  I am very happy with the outcome because I have never made stencils before.  I used a piece of wood from a cabinet, it ended up being longer then the original piece, so I added the kitty on the end to even everything out.  I also made the dachshund a little more chubbier because I work in a kennel and the ones that board with us are usually a bit plump!

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Rocky Horror Vase on: September 20, 2008 05:29:48 PM

I made this a while back for the Rocky Horror Picture Show Swap.  I used lots and lots and lots of glitter and a fishnet stocking.  I made the lips out of polymer clay.  Let me know what you think!

26  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Jay and Silent Bob Snooch! on: September 20, 2008 05:27:32 PM
I made Jay and Silent Bob for my partner in the Kevin Smith Swap.  I made them from polymer clay and acrylic paints.  I am very happy with how their shelltop shoes came out.  I made the base for them and decoupaged a cement picture and picture of the Quick Stop in the background.  They still needed something, so I added the boombox.  Let me know what you think!

27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Budweiser Lizard on: August 29, 2008 05:40:15 PM
I made this as a gift for the birthday of a friend of the family.  He likes lizards and bugs and guess what his choice of drink is.  Wink  I got this idea from the Aquarium in Baltimore, they sold similar things made from Soda cans.  I made it out of 6 beer cans, jewelry wire and used beads for the eyes.  Hope you like it!

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / The Rocky Horror Picture Show Clock on: August 22, 2008 07:45:39 PM
I made this for my swap partner in the Rocky Horror Swap.  I used a wooden clock that I had found in a thrift store, painted in black (It was a light wooden color originally).  The lettering is red vinyl stickers.  The clock part was so fun to make.  I used a skeleton that I found at the craft store, I glued him behind the hands, I used his arm and leg and glued them to the hands.  The instructions to the Time Warp are framed underneath the clock.  I am very happy with the way it turned out, my partner said she liked it.  Yay!

29  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Gears of War Lancer Gun on: August 04, 2008 06:19:53 PM
I made this for my husband.  The pictures did not pick up the actual color of the gun. The pictures kind of make it look cartoony. It doesn't look like a flat gray in real life and it is accented with silver metallic paint, which shows up white in the picture.  I made it with air dry clay and tin foil.  I molded everthing by sections over a series of days, the whole project took about 20 hours.  It has an actual chainsaw blade on it.  The plaque is plywood that I had stained, I made a little metal plaque that says "Lancer" underneath the gun with a dremel tool.  The Gears of War stamp was made from a sponge (My first ever attempt at making a stamp).  It is over 2 feet long and under a foot tall.

30  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Dum Dum the Easter Head Island Statue on: July 28, 2008 04:55:02 PM
I made this statue for my Mom, she has liked "Dum Dum" ever since she saw "Night at the Museum".  She had looked around in stores and catalogs for him, but they usually went for $50 or over.  I made him from a thin cinder block, polymer clay, tin foil and stone spray paint. All together it cost only $10.  It took about 3 hours to get him molded just right.  I had gone to the American Museum of Natural History in New York, took a picture and modeled the statue after that.  There was a line in the museum to get a picture with the statue, there were quite a lot of people getting a picture with him while holding gum up to his mouth  Cheesy  The one that I made is about a foot tall, he hangs out outside all day under a tree, too bad it's not a gum tree.....
