1  Happy Valentines Day! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: February 14, 2011 12:05:10 PM
Happy Valentines day my lovies!

I absolutely LOVE how they came out. The bow on them was a last thought before making them. I was hesitant at first but I'm so glad that I took them to the next level. They are made with polymer clay and are by far my favorite piece so far this year! I took the original picture and edited it in Photoshop to make this wonderful Valentines picture. You can see more pictures on my blog, I hope you all like it and enjoying your Valentines day!

What I love most about taking and looking at pictures is the "story" behind it and that fairy tale feeling that some really give off. I was trying to capture that in these pictures and I think I've done well. When I was taking them I was thinking of my own fairy tale that these pictures called upon. The story that emerge was a girl that had no love ones or lovers, but cookies all around her during Valentines day. In hopes to get that feeling of closeness and happiness she dress the cookies in bows. Surprisingly, the dressed up sweets looked so good and stunning it made her smile with merriment, making her forget all her troubles. Thus making it one of her favorite holidays where she can make friends with sweets and share them with others to make them smile... I know, clich as hell but I'm totally digging the story. I have to draw a picture to match it soon. I love stories like that, it just makes my day! I hope I gave some smiles to people with the story as well.

2  Sweets deco bag charm in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: December 31, 2010 07:54:49 AM
Hey all...

I know its been awhile but I came back to my crafting and deco den after a burn out a few months ago. I'm happy to say that I'm back on track and getting better with each project!

This first one is my first break out pieces after I came out of my bad hiatus. Its a macaroon bag charm with a ribbon on the end. I added a line of pearls with an Eiffel tower charm at the end for added cuteness. The Macaroons are made of paper clay that I colored with acrylics and the "cream" inside is 100% silicone caulk. The bow I made from ribbon, tied and glue together with a glue gun. The toppings are from polymer clay and window paint for a further the realistic look. I was and still am really proud of this piece and all of my family and friends loved it as well.

Thanks for viewing I have more to share in the future!

3  Ravers cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: August 02, 2010 09:55:57 AM

So I heard you like cake? Even better a ravers cake!

This is my rave cake that I made at the same time of my chocolate mousse cake. I had this idea for a while to make a glow in the dark rave cakes and pastries. This was my first time using the theme with my sweets and I like it so far. It was fun using the bright colors for the cakes but I want to practice more on decorating the top of the cake. It didnt come out quite like I want it. Despite that I still really like the cake and plan to make more rave inspired charms to match the cakes.

Thanks for viewing!

4  Chocolate Mousse Cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: July 27, 2010 11:40:25 AM

Who wants chocolate mousse cake?!

This is probably my favorite cake I made so far. *U*

I tried a lot of different things while making this cake like the designs on the top, the dipping chocolate on the side, the mousse texture, and you cant see it but the cakes have crunchy back ends.

Im not sure what Ill do with these cakes but I might make more gourmet chocolate style charms to match the cakes.

Thanks for viewing!

5  DS Donut Charm in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: July 20, 2010 10:40:04 AM

I dont think I submitted these donuts before but I made them a few months ago. I wanted to test make some products so I can see how durable they are. Im pretty impressed with the results. My sister dropped them (by accident) and they held up just fine! I tugged and pulled on them and the eye pins didnt bend or anything. *dances around* I also been working on my photos and picture taking skills so I was really surprised how well the pictures came out. I changed some settings around and worked on the white balance, I really see the difference! If you check out my older pictures you will see how everything had a reddish hue to it. >_>

The charm itself was intended for phones but when I saw how good it looked on my DS I couldnt resist taking the pictures. I even kept the charm on it afterwards and played pokemon soulsilver. XD

Thanks for looking!

8  Cute bows in Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: April 26, 2010 10:00:54 AM
My latest favorite craft! I had the urge to get crafty so I cleaned up my table to start making cakes. Then I remembered that I just brought a glue gun to try making bows XD. So I got out my ribbons and started on them.

Im super happy how they came out! Some of the first ones were a bit off center but Im getting better. I only had one big sized ribbon to make the bigger bows. The rest of the ribbons were smaller thus smaller bows. Im so addicted to making bows now that I want to got get more bigger sized ribbons.

I plan on attaching the bows on a cell phone charm full of sweets! Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

9  Deco den attempt 2 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: March 13, 2010 08:31:19 AM

Here is the second deco den attempt I did like a month ago. I would have posted these sooner but a lot had happened and I wasnt up to it.

The cookies were the paper clay ones I submitted a few months ago and the small heart cookies are made out of polymer clay.

I decided to try to pipe the pink whip cream through the whipped cream tip from the whipped cream can we had in the fridge. I tried to color the caulk too but I didnt mix it well enough and I added a bit too much red oil paint. I like the shape it made but I need to practice more handling it and controlling it more.

10  Little Lollies! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Child of Venus on: March 09, 2010 08:12:50 PM
More sweeties! :3

Here is a bunch of carnival colored lollipops I made over a month ago. Lollipops were one of the very first charms I ever made! So when I made these I felt right at home.

Im going to use these as charms pieces for my crafts. I want to make more with different colors and styles. So many ideas, so little time! D:

Oh yeah. I was experimenting with a sugar coated lollies and I just wanted your opinions on which sugar coating looks better. The round glass beads or the shredded glass?

Thanks for looking and everyones beautiful comments on my crafts, I really appreciate them!  I wont let you guys down; I have more pictures to show later on. :3
