1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Hippocampus on: October 31, 2018 09:40:05 PM
Grin I had a lot of fun painting this one. I hadn't really planned on giving it such a wild paint job, but I get soooo bored painting boring white unicorns all the time. Lips sealed

It is completely hand sculpted from polymer clay. Painted with acrylic paint. Sealed with clear resin to give it a glossy look. The hair is dyed tibetan lambs wool.

It is 5 1/2in tall and 4in at the widest point.

I sculpted this years ago, it was hidden away in my craft stash until I dug it out earlier this year. I don't have any before photos, but it looked rather bland painted ombre blue (and painted rather poorly at that Lips sealed).  Besides repainting it, I ripped out the old fins and resculpted them, which improved its stability so that it now "stands" securely.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Beaded Haning Planters on: July 01, 2018 12:31:54 AM
Last year I started collecting succulent plants, and propagating their leaves in tiny pots. I had so many of them that I was starting to run out of window space, so I started beading hanging planters for them. Grin  I had a lot of fun coming up with different designs for these. I also have a few more that I haven't taken pictures of.

The blue one is my favorite. I like how well the color of the beads goes with the color of the terracotta pot. The crystal beads on the other pot really sparkle and cast a myriad of tiny rainbows Cheesy. I didn't have any nice big crystals for the embellishment on the bottom so I drilled holes in plastic vase filler gems. Roll Eyes

I don't really care for the pink one Lips sealed, I made it to destash some beads I was never going to use otherwise.

This is another favorite of mine, it is so sparkly in person. I want to make another in blue, green, or purple, since those colors would match the color of my plants a little better.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Pumpkins with faces and more on: August 26, 2017 06:09:31 PM
I couldn't wait until October to post these  Tongue, they are just so much fun to sculpt.

I love sculpting silly/creepy little faces on my miniature pumpkins, I am almost always laughing or at least smiling when I am sculpting them.  Cheesy

The two sitting on the right side of the bench are my favorites. They make me think of Sock and Buskin aka comedy and tragedy masks.

Shelf sitter dolls, their little arms and legs are moveable. I also made the teeny candy corn, black licorice, and candy pumpkins in the jars in the background, they are just a little bigger than nonpareil sprinkles. None of the dolls have been painted, all the color comes from the clay itself.

The cat is my favorite of the trio.
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Pineapple Planter on: May 06, 2017 02:58:32 AM
Hand sculpted from polymer clay. It is about 3 3/4 in tall and about the same width.

It was sculpted over a aluminum tea can so that the inside is waterproof.

It is not painted, the color comes from the clay itself and colored chalks that were brushed on before the clay was baked

I haven't counted them all, but there are at least 120 berries.

It has a real live Zebra Haworhia plant planted inside.

I am pretty happy with how this turned out, I may have to sculpt more!  Cheesy

Another Unicorn  Grin

Hand sculpted from polymer clay without the use of molds. Painted with acrylic paint. The mane and tail are made from tibetan lambs wool.

She is 6 3/8 in tall at the highest point and about 6 1/2 in long.

So far I think that she is one of my best Smiley

I have sculpted a lot of unicorns, but this is only the second foal I have made.

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Dollhouse Pumpkins on: October 10, 2016 06:14:07 PM

Here are some of the pumpkins I sculpted this year from polymer clay.

the pumpkins are all under 2in tall

These silly and scary faces are so fun to sculpt  Grin

Also I made the bench and tree with a 3D pen, craft sticks, and a little bit of wire.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New earring rack, new bag on: September 27, 2016 02:35:38 AM
I bought a new earring rack recently, so I need a bag to store it in and that would also be good for carrying it around.

(I also made the earrings. They are polymer clay, they represent the berries that grow in the part of Alaska that I am from. There are other berries, but ones visible in the photo are blueberry and salmon berry (as we call them here, but they are also known as cloud berries), they might be hard to see but there are cranberries peeking out from the bottom left behind the blueberries.)

I stitched the outside of the seams to give it a little more structure, I also cut and put some bamboo skewers between the lining and outer fabrics on the top of the bag so that the sides of the bag would keep a square shape and not flop together when it is being carried, and I put a thin 1/8 in piece of plywood in the bottom of the bag to keep it from sagging when it is lifted. I could have painted the wood black to match the inside of the bag, but since it won't be seen much, I probably won't Roll Eyes

Baby deer are just so cute. After I sculpted a sleeping one back in December, I had to sculpt another Cheesy
