11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Piggy on: February 07, 2016 10:04:32 AM

This little guy has been sitting unfinished in a box of sculpey since 08 Shocked, I finally got around to finishing him.

I haven't actually baked him yet, the clay has been heat set with a heat gun though. I expect that the clay will scorch horribly once he has been baked properly(and likely crack), since he was sculpted with super sculpey  Sad. So I thought that I would take pics of him now while the clay is still a nice even color.

He is about 3 1/8in tall and about 3 1/2in long.

The animals are all hand sculpted from polymer clay without the use of molds, and painted with acrylic paint.

here they are together before I glued them into their boxes.

the animals are about doll house scale. The boxes are all 2 to 3 in tall and 2 to 4 in long.
13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Horse Barn Shadowbox on: November 18, 2015 05:01:16 PM
I have had this idea for a while now, and I finally got around to making it into a reality. Smiley

The horse was hand sculpted from polymer clay and epoxy over a wire and foil armature, without the use of molds. The horse is painted with acrylic paint.

The horseshoes on the sides of the shadowbox were sculpted from polymer clay.

For the "barn", I dyed some craft sticks brown with fabric dye and glued them to the sides of a shadowbox.

Hand sculpted from polymer clay and epoxy without the use of molds. Painted with pearlescent acrylic paint. The hair is tibetan lambs wool.

She is my first unicorn sculpture that I put real eye lashes on, and I am glad that I did, she looks so girly lol.

Dollhouse scale polymer clay indian corn and pumpkins.

The corn took a long time to make, because each kernel of was individually formed and placed Lips sealed .

The husks on the corn are made from raffia.

I also have more of my pumpkins posted in the Occasions and Holidays section of the forum.
16  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Miniatures on: August 25, 2015 03:24:30 PM
I have been having a blast sculpting Halloween miniatures this year.  I have lost track of the number of pumpkins I have sculpted so far.

The pumpkins are all hand sculpted from polymer clay without the use of molds.
I made the bunting and a bat garland out of painted construction paper and string.
I made a witches broom out of polymer clay for the handle and dyed sisal twine for the bristles.

I made tiny candy corn, black licorice, and candy pumpkins.

I have been having the most fun sculpting these pumpkins with teeth and emotive faces.  Grin

17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Unicorn Ornaments on: August 14, 2015 02:17:13 AM

Group photo of the unicorn crafts I have made this year.

The rearing unicorn and the unicorn head are resin casts I molded from my original polymer clay sculptures.

I was lamenting not having any lace when I was working on this, but then I realized that I could crochet some  Tongue

18  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Botanical Shadow Boxes on: June 27, 2015 03:08:04 AM
The plants are sculpted from polymer clay and have bits of real moss and lichen at the bottom.

I knew when I ordered these boxes, that they would be small, but when I saw them in person, I wondered what I would put in them. I had intended for the mushrooms to go in a box 2x the size of the box that they are in now, but happily they fit in these  Cheesy, so I sculpted more plants to go in the other boxes. I think that I will stick with the nature theme when filling the remaining three boxes. Smiley

Starting from the left

Horsetail plant

19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Unicorn Shadow Box on: May 28, 2015 09:04:52 AM
This is my first shadow box, I had a lot of fun with it. I hope to make a lot more Cheesy

The unicorn was sculpted from polymer clay. The photo doesn't show how sparkly he really is, he is painted in pearlescent paint and iridescent glitter.

I painted the inside of the box to look like a forest, and glued in artificial plants and flowers.

the overall dimensions of the box are
7 in tall
5 in wide
2 in deep

20  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Sitting Horse on: April 06, 2015 09:42:41 PM
This year I have been working on finishing old projects. I think that may have started sculpting her around 2008 or 2009, and I finished painting her around 2012, so she has been waiting for hair for the last 3 years  Shocked.

Sculpted from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, no molds were used in the making of this sculpture. Painted with acrylic paint. The mane and tail are made from dyed mohair. She is 4 1/2 in tall and 5 1/2 in long.
