Raindrop Pendant

I have quick share today. My Raindrop pendant inspired by the very rainy, hurricane season we've been having. This pendant is made using Sculpey's Soufflé polymer clay; Pumpkin, Sea Glass and Igloo. I also used Makin's Clay Texture sheet, Set H and mini raindrop from the Mini Geo cutter set.

Bowls - Imagine Inks and Souffle Clay

Hello Makers,

Did you know you can use inks you use in paper crafting on polymer clay. You can color and stamp with inks into your clay projects. Specifically, I find pigment and solvent inks work best on polymer clay. Stamp ink while the clay is raw or after it has been baked (cured).  It is very important to heat set the ink so that it does not smear. You can heat set when baking the clay. If you add ink on cured clay, throw your clay project back in the oven heat set for about 10 mins. You can also heat set with a heating tool. For this project, I create three different bowls using Sculpey Souffle clay with Imagine's VesaMagic Dew Drop and StazOn inks and demonstrate several techniques when using inks. Visit Imagine's blog site for detailed instructions. Hope I pique your interest and give these projects a try.

Beneath the Truth Assemblage

I am so ecstatic to be part of the Rhode Island Art League "Parsing Sign and Image" Art Exhibit. The show runs Sep 14, 2018 through Dec 1, 2018; with a reception Sep 27 5:30-8 pm . This goal of this exhibit is to consider the influence of letters, text, signs and language. 

My piece is an assemblage piece I call "Beneath the Truth". Inspired by our current state of affairs. We get so much information from in different forms; television, government, social media, newsprint, court transcripts, websites. We tend to believe what we read and take it at face value, but should we?

Fire Dress Sculpture

The summer is almost over in most of the United States. Thank goodness, it's been freakishly hot. But all hot things aren't so bad. Like depicting hot themes in art. First, it does not burn, second it's a fun way to express yourself as I did with my fire theme dress sculpture I call "Fire Within". This dress measure around 11 inches in length and 7 inches at the widest point.
