Here is this weeks items for the Weekly Polymer Clay Challenge:
First up we have a little corked glass bottle I covered with clay. You can't really see it but the brown I covered the bottle with was a striated cane of different browns. Next, I put some branches/vines and some flowers I cut I with my new cutters. I lightly dusted everything with bronze mica powder, baked and sealed with Liquitex Satin. My intentions are to wrap the neck with wire to hang as a wish bottle from my window or shelf.
Next I have a heart pendant that was supposed to be a bird. Yeah, how did that happen. Well in my rediscovery of clay I've found I enjoy creating the piece and then painting it. I bought a large brick of Sculpey Premo! clay in white for my painted creations, but find it extremely mushy. I was attempting to make a blob bird from the Christi Friesen "Birds" book. It morphed into a large heart, since I do love hearts and Valentine's Day in general- I just went with it. It is painted with acrylics and sealed with Liquitex Satin varnish. I love this shade of purple, not sure why. I also had some leftover flowers. It makes me happy. I might even make a purse charm out of it. I call it my little Heartnado.
Until next week...
