1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / what to do with rainbow skinner blends? on: March 06, 2011 01:48:32 PM
I made some and I was thinking about using a mokume gane technique to cover an altoid tin, but every time I try to use that technique I fail miserably and it ends up looking like a mess.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how-to/tutorial for beaded ball? on: January 26, 2011 04:42:43 PM
Does anyone know where I can find a tutorial to do something like this green "beaded ballisimo"?
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Fennec fox art doll head (img heavy) on: January 17, 2011 05:45:31 PM
Here is a doll head I sculpted and painted the other day. I didn't attach the soft-body yet.
I made a fennec fox because they are scientifically proven to be the most adorable animal on the planet. I hope I was able to capture that in my sculpture.

I used paint in a color called "black sequin" to make the eyes and nose look moist and twinkly.

Those magnificent ears! Seriously, I think fennec foxes should be able to fly.


Another profile.


What do you think I should name him? I was thinking of making him a felt fedora and suspenders once I attach the body and limbs.

I'm pretty new to fimo. I make sculptures with original sculpey, so I'm not used to the harder clay. These are some of the first charms I made. I hope you like them!

Xbox360 controller earrings with a quarter for size reference. The beads are the colors of the buttons and the "X" on the power button glows in the dark.

Detail shot. Sort of, lol.

Evolution of Nintendo controllers charms. Someday I'll put this on a bracelet.

With size reference.

NES controller. This is where it all began. The D-pad looks kind of weird. This was the first one I made. I still think it's cute in that quirky homemade kind of way.

SNES controller.

N64 controller. I like how this one came out the best.

Gamecube controller.

Wii-mote. I had trouble getting a good shot of this since it's mostly white.

These didn't take long to make at all, maybe 10 minutes a piece. I'm say I'm proud of them, overall, but I do hope I get better as I continue to use this clay. It's much rougher on the hands and stickier than original sculpey.
Feedback, positive or critical encouraged, and advice always welcome. Cheesy
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Oh dear god, it's almost here! Christmas list help. on: November 14, 2010 04:37:01 AM
I was sitting around the house thinking to myself that there's not much to do in the middle of November, and then it hit me: oh crap! It's November! Christmas is on it's way. And this year I have to make all of my gifts because my boyfriend recently lost his job. There's no time! What in the world am I going to do? I need to think of gifts to make for everyone.

And now I'm surfing the net trying to find ideas for gifts for the most important people in my life and I'm drawing a complete blank. Thought maybe we could try helping each other come up with ideas for the people on our Christmas lists. So make a short list of the people on your Christmas list, their interests and what kind of crafts you specialize in or prefer to use. Here's mine:

1. Boyfriend: Loves nerdy things in general. Anything Final Fantasy related. Plays a lot of video games. Likes ninjas. Like I said, he lost his job recently. He's at home constantly, so I'm going to need to hide what I'm doing from him. Possibly something I can take on the bus/to the bookstore. 

2. Roommate: I want to make sure I make something nice for him because we recently had a falling out and I still feel bad about it. Is obsessed with Resident Evil, zombies in general, Zelda, Metallica, Cthulu and cephalopods in general.

3. Gal pal: Likes cats, comic books, very colorful stuff. She is also a crafter so anything I make needs to be of high quality.

4. Friend/Coworker: Owns cats and fish. Awkward, but not really nerdy. Really likes penguins. Too bad I can't crochet him a girlfriend.

These are the most important ones, I suppose.

My preferred mediums: crochet and polymer clay.
Post yours! I'll do my best to help. Smiley
