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 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 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.

This is the front of a small vase I made for a friend. I made quite a few before moving on to other things. It’s only about 4″ tall. I use the one I kept for pens and pencils on my desk.

Polymer Clay Face Canes

These are a few of the face canes I have waiting to be turned into something. I’ve learned just about everything I know about polymer clay from the web. I have taken a couple of class from some well known artists, but for years I just experimented and learned from others on the web. I do face canes a bit different and it is something I figured out for myself. I’m still working on it.
