1  A few pendants. Polymer Clay and embossing powders. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by agnesdei5 on: April 30, 2007 09:05:06 PM
I saw a few things the other day that I wanted to try.  I've tried and failed with embossing powder on polymer clay before.  I have very little time anymore (I have two year old twins), so when I get the chance to use polymer clay I try to make a batch that includes about 15 pieces, and usually only about 2 turn out the way I want them to.
I'm not in love with this one, the stamp didn't come out completely and the design, I think, was a little too complicated to try to do with embossing powder.  However, it gives me inspiration to try and do a cameo with this same technique.  BTW, it's a lady holding a letter...though it kinda looks like she's flipping us off.

This one was originally done with embossing powder as well, but it was driving me nuts, so I scraped it off and started again.  I liked the shape.  When I went to drill the holes, I messed up on the first, so I just drilled a second.  Originally I was thinking I would hang it from a necklace on one hole and dangle a bead from the second...but then I used a rub-on from the scrapbooking section and decided that it would make a nice nameplate type component.

Gold embossing powder that was put on a greenish piece of clay.  I did the embossing after the clay was cured.

This still needs to have a hold drilled it.  For this one I made the impression in the clay, cured it, then put the embossing powder into the recesses, then baked it again.  This one is actually the same stamp that was used to do the green/gold one up there.  It makes a huge difference which way you use it.

So far my favorite.  This one also had the impression made prior to curing. Then I rubbed some light blue acrylic paint on it, gave it a few minutes, and wiped it off.  Then a coat of varnish to make that paint stay put.

2  Polymer Clay brooch, embeded beads and embossing powder! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by agnesdei5 on: January 29, 2007 01:10:46 PM

I needed a brooch to hold together a shrug, and didn't have one or the moolah to buy one....soooo.

Just flattened a disk of polymer clay, cut out a circle, embedded some beads and a button in the center.  Then covered the whole deal in bronze embossing powder, stuck a pinback on the back and covered that with a tiny strip of clay to hold it in place.  Baked.

3  angel wings! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by agnesdei5 on: December 12, 2006 01:36:51 PM
with Christmas approaching, and having twins of my own to buy for all the neices are getting handmade stuff.  I've made some fairy wings for one little girl and now for the other--angel wings!

I made the silver "veins" with hot glue and super fine glitter...I was worried that it would eat through the nylon, but it didnt!!!  The outer edge is a novelty yarn that's been hanging out in my stash for far too long...I like them!

4  Fairy Wings-I fixed the picture! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by agnesdei5 on: December 01, 2006 07:59:59 PM
I made these for my neice for Christmas...I used the coat hanger, cheapo knee-high method.  I also used some thin elastic as the armband instead of ribbon--just didn't seem logical for a 4 year old.

anyone have a tip on how to paint on meshy-type fabrics?

5  More polymer clay beads, pics in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by agnesdei5 on: October 11, 2006 08:39:53 AM
Made these last night.  I used sea salt as an inclusion, but it really didn't show up--maybe because I used translucent clay and made the beads really light.  But I've been looking for big beads lately, and can't find any...sooo.

6  Polymer Clay beads and a pendant, fun inclusion technique. picture links in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by agnesdei5 on: October 10, 2006 10:04:42 PM
I just did these this morning and I'm really happy with the way they turned out.  I mixed in coffee grounds with my translucent and tiny smidge of green clay...fun, no?

And then I made this, just cut out a piece of clay, cured it and decoupaged it, and added a rhinestone for fun.
