1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / New and improved dragon eyes on: February 03, 2013 10:58:40 AM
Every now and then my old dragon eye thread pops up and I wanted to show my new and improved dragon eyes. One of the things I have really wanted was to continually improve, not just to work on harder projects but to improve my skill at sculpting....anything, everything, even simple pieces. I look back at my earlier pieces and am amazed at how far I've come. We may not always love our earlier work, but it's worth it to revisit those pics, how else can you truly appreciate what you do today?

Anyways, my newer dragon eyes!, still making my own eyes using a glass cabochon, but I made my own 'eyes' for the back on the computer and am printing them out instead of using plain ink and foil like before....funny thing is I still get requests for pieces with those plain ink and foil eyes  Tongue

Thanks for looking!

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Man Eating Flower! on: July 16, 2012 07:44:34 AM
It's been awhile since I made an entirely new design, but I'm trying to come up with a balance where by I can actually get chores done, accomplish some goals, remake old stuff to sale and still create new designs which is the part I love best =) It is hard though, health issues and 'stuff' going on at home make focus so difficult, but I'm trying, and am hoping this gets me off to a good start. This has actually been on paper for about 6 months! Am so glad I finally found the inspiration to bring it off the paper and to the clay =)

BTW the photo doesn't even remotely do it justice, well, IMO  Tongue Me and my mica powders lol I used a blue and purple on this and some metallic pastes. I think the best part of mica powders are how easily and wonderfully they blend, if you haven't tried them you are missing out.
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Steampunk Flashdrive on: July 10, 2012 06:42:36 PM
Am thinking a lot of you have probably seen flashdrives with polymer clay wrapped around them and wondered how they can do that? Yes, you can bake a flashdrive. Will it get ruined? It might, it might not. The components in a flashdrive can handle the heat just fine, the only problem may be if there is even a hint of moisture, that can ruin it. Can you do it without baking it? Yes! I don't bake my flashdrives, I use a plug that I made just for this purpose, the plug takes the place of the flashdrive during curing so that I can epoxy the flashdrive in place after the 'sleeve is completely done.

This is completed flashdrive

This is a 'sleeve' that's all done and ready for the flash drive to be epoxied in place.

Couple more 'sleeves' I've made.

Next time I'm thinking to add an eyeball to one  Grin
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Celtic Knots And Water Mixable Oils on: May 07, 2012 10:18:50 AM
Playing around with water mixable oils on my new Celtic Heart Knot pendants, love the color =)

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / steampunk nautilus on: October 31, 2011 11:01:50 AM
It's been awhile since I made a genuinely new piece...too long! But I finally have one, I had a ton of fun making this guy. I usually like less detail but this seemed to scream for more detail and it was fun adding the little touches. He's from a gold, silver, and copper, colored polymer clay and I did some highlighting metallics. He's got a hematite bead for an eye.

This is how he hangs...I really thought it would be a nice piece hanging down instead the way he would normally be and I stand byt that, I think this makes a very piece.

and one more thing...check out the tiny jet pack on my dragonfly! It's so cute =)

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Armored Heart on: October 13, 2011 03:59:47 PM
A heart that's been encapsulated in armor  Grin You can see a bit of the heart at the very top but the rest has been covered in armored with straps and plates to hold it on. All polymer clay, though Wink With mica powders and gilder's pastes, antiqued, and sealed of course. This is the second version and much improved over the first, too, one of my favorite pieces.
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Meet the Mrs! on: October 12, 2011 11:56:19 AM
Last year you you all saw my steampunk gingerbreadman ornament, now he's got a wife =) They're quite the couple don't you think?
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / A new steampunk wing on: July 31, 2011 10:18:38 AM
I was afraid at first it was a bit too art deco but I think it rocks =)
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dragon's eyes! on: July 14, 2011 01:48:26 PM
I thought it would be neat to do dragon's eyes in pretty colors, what do you guys think? I think they're really cool =)

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / A white owl! on: June 24, 2011 03:00:44 PM
This is something I had seen a lot of folks do....use white and it's like a faux bone carving. I don't know wyy it took me so long to try it, I love the look so much and I think it turned out pretty darned well. I highly recommend everyone try it on at least once  Grin
