Happy 4th of July!

I made this vase yesterday with a new face cane. It’s a small vase or pencil holder. Fun! Going to my Etsy shop I think.

I also posted a fish mosaic on Polymer Clay Etc. I made it while filming my tutorial.

The Figurative Artbeat

One of my other blogs….The Figurative Artbeat is turning into a very enjoyable experience. I continue to come across wonderful figurative artists with websites or blogs and am gathering them all in one place for my enjoyment but also for the viewer, you!

I get to converse with the artists by email and spend time with pictures of their work and learning more about them. My plan is to have a new artists at least once a week. I have an exciting artist lined up for next week, so be sure to keep checking in.

I only post a few of the fabulous work of these artists, for the full pleasure you need to lake time to visit their sites as well. So when you have a moment, spend some time with some inspirational art that will get the creative side of your brain jumping.

I just finished  a video for my other blog. Polymer Clay Etc. I was making a Skinner Blend cane and using even the scraps to make more canes, when I thought that maybe others might like to see what I do with the scraps. I just hate to waste the Skinner Blend. So check it out. I had to edit it down so it’s not very long.
