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.

I’ve just posted a new video to my other blog showing how I store my canes. Just had to share what I’ve learned.

If you take a look, why not take time to sign up for my newsletter while you’re there and view a video on how to cover a business card holder. My other blog, Polymer Clay Etc. is where I will be sharing things I’ve learned and posting videos. This blog is for my personal work. I know, crazy huh?

I used the canes from my video, Leave No Skinner Blend Behind, to make the two
girls here. They are both for sale at my Etsy shop.

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.

Just finished a video tutorial for my new blog, Polymer Clay Etc., and I’m putting the business card holders I made for sale in my Etsy Shop. I also made a girl pin and another funky girl business card holder. I will be offering them too.  Just too much fun for one person.

Is it raining fish? A Polymer Clay Bracelet
Fish Girl Polymer Clay Bracelet

Fish Girl Polymer Clay Bracelet

I can’t remember how many years ago it was when I saw Kim Korringa’s fish cane. She shared a tutorial and I loved the colors and make one right away. I didn’t do anything with it once I make it until recently. A fish head hat seemed just right for one of my girls. She would be in style in the Florida Keys I think. You can make your own fish cane by following  Kim’s excellent instructions at Kim Korringa Designs. Thank you Kim.



Highlands Art League Donation

Highlands Art League had a very successful Derby Day fundraising event on Saturday. My polymer clay bottle (see last post) sold on the silent auction table for $130.00. I was pleased with that amount considering the amount of beautiful artwork that was offered.
It was a beautiful night and everyone had a great time.
The league owes a great deal of thanks to Jeri and Jimmy Wohl, hosts of the event, for the use of the lodge at their Rafter T Ranch. It was a fabulous setting for Race for the Arts.

Wine Bottle

wine-bottlecloseupI just finished this wine bottle girl and wine stopper for a fundraiser auction for my art league. Highlands Art League is in Sebring FL, and I just stepped down as director. We have three older buildings that we saved from being torn down, plus a fabulous museum. All on beautiful Lake Jackson. It really is a fabulous place. A great art space.

This bottle was given to me by my friend Jeri. She found it at a garage sale and knew I would love to reuse it for something new.

I  save all my Sky bottles and make women bottles like this. Great fun. I made one for a raffle last fall and it did well for the league.

These are all figures that I made several years ago. Now that I have more time, I’d like to do some more.

Sadie a Bracelet Display

Sadie a Bracelet Display

I use Sadie to display my bracelets at Highlands Art League in Sebring, FL. I think she’s from Miami. She reminds me of somebody’s Aunt Sadie that lived in Miami in the early ’60s. Just had to love her.

Florida tourist

Florida tourist

The tourist is home with me right now, but has done a stint as a model in the window of my friend Janet King’s art gallery in downtown Sebring. He has been dressed as an artist, a witch and I think even cupid. His head, hands and feet are polymer clay.

Princess

Princess

I think she is a princess. I don’t know from where, but a Princess for sure. She’s a wall hanging, 13 x 14.
