Christmas Tree Makin's Clay

Hello Makers!

Christmas is around the corner. Everywhere we go, we see stores, streets and homes festively decorated. Well, I wanted to add to the festivities with my Makin's Clay® Christmas tree. This tree is 4 x 2 inches. It makes for a great home decor, gift, or to have in your desk/cube at work, where it won't take up much room. To find out how to make this project and get other clay project ideas visit the Makin's Clay Blog.

Steampunk Winged Clock

Hello Makers!

It's time to share my make (lol, get the little pun there)...my Steampunk Winged Clock, made using a Tim Holtz Clock, chipboard, polymer clay, gears and my fav metallic wax.

Don't know why but I just love clocks. I don't even have a real clock in my house, or like wearing watches. I like them for their aesthetics, their meaning, their beauty and for making art with, of course.

These are the ways I use clocks in my art. In Art Journaling; like to stamp and stencil clocks. I like to use them in polymer clay work, using molds, like in my pencil holder. Like them in steampunk jewelry, assemblages; mainly using the parts of a clock or watch. You can see this this example in my Time Destruction piece. I like using them as a substrate for 3D work like this clock; or my other clock pieces: Time Watchers, Father Time, Fairy in a Clock, and Fly. Currenly, working on another clock project, will share later. For now, hope you like my Steampunk Clock.
