Do you ever feel you’re surrounded with WIP? Still wondering what WIP is? WIP is “Work in progress” or “Work in progression” or “Work in procrastination” or “work in process” … to be honest it depends on the week as to what the “P” in WIP actually means. Regardless, the past several weeks have been very busy and filled with a ton of creating & busy work here at KatersAcres. And today my WIP Wednesday post is on Thursday because, well, the Eeyore mask will tell you (keep reading). In the meantime, here’s a look at some other WIP that are going on in here in my studio, as well as some notes, tidbits, and some other artist’s work you may have missed. Keep reading…

Polymer Clay Studio Ideas & More

This January overview will hit the high points of our WIP Wednesday for the month. Why just the highlights? Because as a working full-time polymer studio, there’s always a lot of things that go on here in NW Pennsylvania that I can’t always share. The reason is because sometimes they are for upcoming tutorials, super secret collaborations or future projects. In other words, I can’t always share everything I’m working on, but I can share some things with you. Today’s WIP Wednesday features a few things you may

Supplies, Supplies, & More Supplies

2017 has arrived. Let the polymer clay fun begin! To help kick off this WIP Wednesday, since we’re only a few days into the new year, I’m going to show you a few things I’m working on; as well as some great supplies you might like in your studio for the new year. I will also let you know where you can find these supplies. (PS: Most of my supplies I get from Amazon as my nearest retail art/craft store is about an hour and a half from my house. — Yes, I live in podunk).

Fresh Perspectives: A Change in Medium

I love mixed media. Especially mixed media that centers around paper, paint, and collaged elements; like this Winter Art Girl. There’s just something about collage that I have always been drawn to and always enjoyed. Today’s WIP Wednesday is about taking a break from your “main art form” to express yourself and your heart through another art medium. Come on over and join me to see my Winter Wonderland Snow Girl. I made this as a dashboard for my Traveler’s Notebook.  As a bonus today I’ll teach you to make your own.

November Wrap Up

I can’t believe it, “November Wrap Up” – where did the year go?! Is it just me or did time just melt away. It has been a LONG time since I did a WIP Wednesday post (since July actually). I’m not 100% sure that you  like these posts. I used to do these posts every week or every other week.

Please COMMENT BELOW if you’d like to see more of these posts or if you find them interesting and would like me to continue them. THANK YOU!

The Making of Caned Polymer Clay Flowers Bouquet

Every once and awhile there’s something you make that has more meaning than your day-to-day creations. For me, it was this lovely bunch of caned polymer clay flowers. Why? Because I made these in honor of my Mom’s birthday this past weekend.
