21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Beaded Wooden Eggs on: April 05, 2015 01:44:02 PM
I used a peyote stitch to cover turned wooden eggs with seed beads.  The pink egg isn't quite finished.



I thought that I might have posted these on Craftster before, but I couldn't find them,  Tongue so here are some of the other eggs I have beaded in the past.



The blue and yellow "egg" on the right, is actually a oval shaped rock.

I made some conversation hearts out of polymer clay, and made them into earrings. Cheesy



23  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bowing Unicorn on: January 20, 2015 03:34:58 AM
I finally sculpted a bowing unicorn! Cheesy I had tried so many times to sculpt a unicorn in this pose, but I could never quite get them to look right.

Hand sculpted from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, no molds were used in the making of this sculpture nor were any made. Hand painted with acrylic paint. The mane is made from Tibetan lambs wool and the tail and feathers (hair near the hooves) are mohair.

He is 4 1/2 in tall at the highest point and about 9 in long.







24  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Appaloosa Unicorn on: January 04, 2015 03:22:34 AM



Hand sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint. The hairs on the coat were meticulously painted one by one, they even follow natural hair growth patterns and swirls. No molds were used in the making of this sculpture nor were any made. The mane and tail are made from mohair.
 
She is 7 1/2 in tall at the highest point and about 6 1/2 in long.
 
I don't remember when I started painting her, but I have been working on painting her since before I finished the black unicorn foal I made in 2012, not to mention the time it took to sculpt her. To have worked on her for so long she was a real labor of love to create. I think that she is my favorite unicorn that I have sculpted so far. Cheesy




Lol she looks like a hair model in this photo  Grin



Her foal and another unicorn I sculpted




I am hoping that the frost sticks around until tomorrow, so that I can get some glittery, wintery pics of her outside.

These are molded from my original polymer clay horse head sculptures, and cast in jewelry resin.







I am experimenting with different techniques for marbling resin.

Sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint, the fins are made from tissue paper. He is 1.5 cm long.





I plan on using this little guy in another project, so you may see him again soon  Wink
27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Appaloosa Wall Hanging on: October 08, 2014 11:20:59 PM

I had a little 3" X 3 5/8" block of plywood leftover after I built a couple of freestanding shelves, I felt that I had to do something with it, so here is what I came up with.



I stained the wood with watered down acrylic paint to make it look a little more weathered. I painted little black and white confetti horses to look like appaloosas then glued them on to the block. I coated it with clear resin so that the little confetti horses would not come off and to attach the horse head.



Before I coated the block in resin wood burned "appaloosa" on both sides.



I nailed rusty horseshoe nails to the the top of the block to attach twine. I dyed the twine with Rit dye to match the wood. The beads strung on the twine, I made from recycled plastic bottles (more on how they were made https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285491.0;all , I was so happy to finally have a use for these, for years I didn't quite know what to do with them  Grin ). Then I drilled holes in the bottom, so that I could glue in glass bead strands.



These are unpainted casts I made from horse heads I sculpted from polymer clay, molded with silicone and cast in white resin.
28  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Pumpkins! on: October 04, 2014 03:57:00 AM
I have been having so much fun making these!  Grin

I have to make more pumpkins, gourds, and squashes! Cheesy









The largest pumpkin is two inches tall and the smallest is half an inch.


They are sculpted from polymer clay. I painted some of them with acrylic paint to give them more detail. The white ones have been dusted with mica powder to make them shimmery.

I molded a few of the polymer clay horse heads I sculpted, cast them in resin and made them into necklaces  Cheesy









Here is one of the original sculptures I made one of the molds from
