1  Tiny Dragon in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jen-jen on: February 06, 2010 06:54:48 AM
This was the other half of my friend's birthday present. It's based on a sketch I did a while back for him.

He's about 1 1/2in tall. (sorry the pics are kind of dark)

2  Cupcake Beads in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jen-jen on: February 06, 2010 06:53:00 AM
Here's another Make 365 item. Two of these beads will end up as earrings and the third will most likely end up a necklace to complete the set.

Each one is less than an inch square.

3  Mini Zombie in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jen-jen on: February 06, 2010 06:50:50 AM
This year I've decided to try doing a Make 365 Project. So basically, I make something (anything) every day for a year. (I've been posting pictures here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/33655291@N00/sets/72157623138319665/ )
This is one of the things I've made so far. He was half of a birthday present for a friend and he's based on zombie drawings I've been doing for years. I will be making more, it was just too much fun not to.

If you're wondering, he stands about 3in tall.

*here's one of the original sketches

4  Retro-esque Baby Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jen-jen on: October 04, 2008 03:24:42 PM
I made this for a couple I know who just adopted a son. It's was more work than I expected but I got all the material for super cheap. I think it worked out alright.

5  Suitcase Cake in Dessert by jen-jen on: September 07, 2008 03:13:09 PM
A friend of the family had been away traveling and when he came back my grandma asked me to make a cake for him. She told me to do whatever I thought would be best so I kind of ran with it.
This is what I came up with.

It's all hand painted fondant to look like an old-school wood suitcase.

The handle is black fondant. I know this picture is kind of dark, but I was really happy with the way the handle turned out.

I just wish I'd made more stickers but I didn't want it to get too crowded.

Just to prove I have entirely too much time on my hands and I've lost my mind, I added little feet. The corners were covered with round pieces of fondant just to give it that finished look.

6  Treasure Chest and Lunch Tray cakes in Dessert by jen-jen on: September 07, 2008 02:50:26 PM
Here are a few more cakes I've made.
The treasure chest was for a kid's 5th birthday. The best thing was that none of the kids believed it was a cake. All the "boards" were fondant that was hand painted to look like wood.

And the lunch tray was for a lunch lady's retirement party. We were trying to come up with something fitting and I thought this would be cute. Everything except the plastic wrap and the straw is edible (including the tray). All the sandwich fillings and the pickles were sculpted out of gum paste and hand painted.

7  Monkey and the Rock Dude in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jen-jen on: September 07, 2008 02:44:07 PM
These are a couple of marionettes I made a while ago. They're both sculpey and the Rock Dude has hair I cut from a wig.

8  Button Cake in Dessert by jen-jen on: August 27, 2008 07:51:03 PM
A few months ago I was asked to make an 80th birthday cake for a woman who had always loved to sew. So we decided she needed a button cake. Here's the end result.

I cut out every button and pressed each button by hand and punched every hole. There were four colours and two sizes. The buttons alone took me a whole day.

And the pin cushion topper was totally a last minute thing. I added it literally seconds before they came to take the cake away. I could have just left it off but the cake seemed so unfinished without it and it really added something to the cake.

Anyway, I thought the craftster folks would appreciate it.

9  Mail Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by jen-jen on: August 27, 2008 07:42:48 PM
I've been doing chain mail for a long time but lately I've been working a lot smaller. These are some earrings I made last week.
These ones are silver wire and agate beads.

And these are silver wire and onyx.

Yesterday I did a pair of cross chain earrings (which were a HUGE pain working that small) I'll have to try and get a picture up eventually.

10  Skull Flower Barrettes in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by jen-jen on: August 27, 2008 07:38:14 PM
I started making these skull flowers recently.

I also do girl skulls (with red bows in their... um... hair?) and I reverse the flower colours. Black on top and red on the bottom.
Here's a super crappy shot of the backs.

I just used fake daisies (I usually have a couple of different kinds) and took them apart. Then painted one piece red and the other black. Sculpted the skulls out of sculpey and painted them. Gave everything a shot of crystal clear and glued the works together and then to the barrette. Simple, yes?
