1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Tall Forest Beast Finally Complete! on: June 21, 2013 08:41:47 AM
This one took a very long time to make!

He and all his friends are made of air drying clay, painted with acrylics, and resting on a wooden base.

Final size: 17 inches tall, 14 inches long, 8 inches wide.

I still need to take some nicer photos of the completed sculpture!

Here are some in-progess photos...

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Two-Headed Cats on: February 13, 2012 08:30:04 AM
I made a two-headed cat.

Then I decided I needed another one.

I kept track of how the second one was made.

First, I made a sketch and an armature out of foil.

Then I started adding the clay, and some wire to reinforce the legs.

More clay. At this stage it is just an ugly pink blob creature.

This is before and after baking. The eyes are glass beads that were set in place temporarily to ensure a perfect fit.

The eyes were removed, and the painting began.

And finally done!  Grin The eyes are glued in and the entire cat is finished with a matte varnish to protect the paint job.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Huge painting of doom! on: September 18, 2010 11:40:35 AM
So, after months of working on this , it is finally finished!

I put in the last 20 or so hours on it this week and i'm exhausted.
and there will be no flowers or grass in my next painting.

Acrylic on canvas, 36 x 48 inches

Now I finally have something to hang in my dining room! Grin

Enjoy!  C & C welcome!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My finally clean and organized studio/craft room! on: August 21, 2010 04:40:56 PM
Me and my hubby bought a house nearly a year ago, and I got one of the rooms for a studio!

Here is my main work-table. Its next to the window, so theres lots of natural light during the day, and I have a nice lamp for working at night.
I keep all my ink and liquid watercolors here.

Behind that table is a closet door turned into a very long table. Plenty of storage underneath it, and slat-wall storage above.
And my bookshelf too. Its hard to believe a year ago, most of my supplies were crammed into those five, white storage drawers.

On the next wall is my easel, an early birthday present. Currently holding the largest painting I have ever worked on.
Thats the biggest canvas I could fit into my car.

And the closet, which has lots more of my junk. Lots of jars of beads and other shiny things.

Finally, my old but comfy chair, and a storage ottoman.

Finally, a room of my own. No more dining room table disappearing under supplies, or sewing machine living on the kitchen counter!
C & C welcome!  Cheesy

Edit:  Thanks everyone for all the nice comments!
