1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / There's a Zombie on your lawn. [7 images] on: May 21, 2009 12:21:57 PM
If anyone has played Plants vs. Zombies, you know it's one of the most addictive games to come out in a long time. You also know it's the cutest!!

I had a friend request a fridge magnet with the Sunflower and Peashooter. They loved it so I'd figure I'd share. Now they want a "wallnut" so now I'm trying to figure out how to make a bumpy texture lol. Anyway, here are the pics. I also made a lapel pin and necklace. The background is supposed to be the lawn. Glossed with Varathane.

The game: http://www.popcap.com/extras/pvz/index.php
The music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N1_0SUGlDQ (hilariously cute and catchy)




It's pretty big!

The necklace (The pin is the same size)


I'll post more pics when I get the other requests done!
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / What I've been doing... (some slightly adult content) on: April 10, 2009 12:33:36 PM
Geez I miss you guys Sad So much awesome artwork here since I've been gone! I can't wait to get to a peaceful time in my life to get through all of the posts! Hi Everyone!! So much has been happening in the last few months. I'm looking for a new job and I may be moving to get one! Cross your fingers for me. Lots of other crazy stuff I won't bore you with as well. I have made some time for crafting, but that's about to come to a screeching halt here as I'm going away in two weeks and have a lot of things to do to get ready.

Here are some of the things I've been doing lately:

Companion cube ring:

Gamer Girl Neckaces:

Portal Cake Ring:

WiiMote Necklace:

Companion Cube Keyring and Charm set (for a sweet couple who play portal together)

Hehe, not really.... well kind of! Wink My friend has three talented daughters and asked me to make them each a necklace. It was so fun doing something different! The spiral on the sketchpad is a spring from a pen. The image on the front is from a picture I found of a sketchpad. I copied it onto T-Shirt transfer paper and stuck it on the front. The guitar pick is covering an actual guitar pick that I snagged at a Rob Zombie concert.

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Help! Baking things more than once on: December 16, 2008 03:38:25 PM
One of my pieces I make a lot of was becoming a chore. I was trying to make it all at once (other than the armature) and by the time I got to the end the beginning had been handled too much. I followed the great advice here and started baking as I did steps. I have it down now so that

The armature is baked
The cover and one decoration is put on and baked
another decoration is put on and baked
The final pieces are put on and baked

Now I am having the issue of the first backed pieces being a bit too dry and they chip easily.

Should I not be baking them for the full amount of time? I really just want to get it to the point where I won't be squishing it.

Thank you Smiley
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / A "twist" on the Oreo Tutorial on: December 12, 2008 01:18:20 PM
Pun intended! ThatsNeat did a great little mini Oreo tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=279963.0 I've been dying to try it. It was a lot of fun, and sadly, quite a few Oreos were killed in the process. May they RIP, in my stomach. The mold came out great thanks to the tutorial! I got the idea to make some with a bite out of the creme, since quite a few "died" that way. I wound up with a reversible charm. I used Fimo sparkly white clay for the filling to give them a little twinkle. The third pic is a mini mini oreo. I put the clay in the mold, then cut off the edges and rounded them off. It's so tiny! It's my favorite one. Thank you to ThatsNeat for the fun tutorial!

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / What the... Tentacles? on: December 06, 2008 05:08:27 PM
My friend asked for tentacle earrings. At first I thought she said testicles LOL! What is with the tentacle fascination? I see them all over the place.

These earrings are HUGE, almost 3 inches long, at her request! They made me think of kookie when I was making them Wink

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Gingerbread house on: December 06, 2008 12:52:02 AM
There is not much different here than what is in my Gingerbread pin tutorial. The armature for this is UltraLight Clay. I made the house shape first and baked it, then put the "gingerbread" over it. The house sits on a piece of a chocolate candy bar. Thank you to DianeB for all the great info from the glass attic! It is 1 3/4 inch high

Happy holidays everyone Smiley

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Ginger Bread House Lapel Pin [TUTORIAL][IMAGE HEAVY] on: November 26, 2008 04:16:07 PM
I'm laid off, so everyone is getting handmade gifts this year. I wanted to do some pre Christmas gifts for my Aunt to wear on the holidays. I made her a gingerbread house pin that she loved years ago, but thanks to beadizzygrl, I can make canes now! This was a really fun project and the total time was about 6 hours. It will go a lot faster if I make any more because the canes are made. A big thanks to KishCrafts and Porgie whose tiny food is such an inspiration!! Here are the finished pins:

Let's get started. First we make some canes that look like peppermint candy, save some of the left over pieces for candy canes.

Then we make a Christmas tree cane. First cut out your tree:

then stuff in the white. I cut out triangles to fit under the branches:

Then reduce and:

then some candied fruit canes:

Next we cut out the houses. These were run through the pasta machine on the thickest setting:

Then reduce the candy canes and use them around the framing. I formed the gingerbread men by hand, I think I'll make a mold for next time. His buttons are those tiny glass marbles:

Time to reduce the canes and start decorating!

Using white clay and liquid clay (thank you Dianeb) I made some icing. I used ultralight clay because I think it 'melts' nice.  I added some glass marbles for sprinkles:

As you can see, I decorated them all differently.

The End! Thank you to all of my mentors at Craftster.

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Penny Candy on: November 13, 2008 03:32:26 PM
A few months ago I had one of those weird dreams where you just relive something you did. I was dreaming about being in a Penny candy store when I was little! I woke up and was thinking about it and decided I wanted to make a penny candy bracelet. I totally forgot about it, like most of the things I think of at 3:00 AM. I need to put paper and pencil beside my bed. A post by DollyMix jarred my memory last week, and I finally made it. I had 2 empty spaces so I added blue and pink candy looking glass beads. It took about 3 hours to make. I seem to work faster when I'm doing something I'm excited about. lol. The wax bottle is translucent clay rolled very thin with translucent on the top and bottom. The candy cig and lollipop stick is ultralight with wire armature.

 Here is what is on it:

1 LemonHead
1 Piece Dolly Mix
1 Goetzes Caramel Bullseye
1 Grape Lollipop
2 Pieces Good n Plenty
1 Flying Saucer Wafer
1 Green M & M / Smartie
1 Piece Bazooka Joe
1 Swedish Fish
1 Orange Gumball
1 Candy Cigarette
1 Pair Wax Lips
1 Nik-L-Nip wax bottle filled with fruit juice

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Christmas Bear on: October 29, 2008 08:02:17 AM
A new take on the portal bear. Everything is ultralight clay, except for the silver and pink on the Christmas gift. I put a ribbon through his hat so he can be an ornament. He's 2 1/2 inches high. This one went to my Aunt, she should get him today.

I really like working with the ultralight, it's loads of fun. It's like playing with foam.
