Well another Friday is here! Can you believe that we have done 16 tutorials together? Today’s tutorial makes number 17. Awesome! For those of you who have stayed with me throughout every project and every challenge, I commend you for taking the time to get back to claying. I started this project with one goal in mind: to explore polymer arts, meet clayers from around the world, and get people to fall in love with polymer again. Many of you have written to me and told me how much you appreciate the tutorials and the project. Thank you for the letters & emails – I’m honored to take this journey with you! Today’s tutorial is not found in Christi’s book, it’s just from me to each of you … from way down under, the Tasmanian Devil! Read More
Break out the popcorn, Twinkies, Vegemite, and TimTams:
Today brings us an awesome little cutie pie for a garden, planter, doll house, or even a tree ornament! I really didn’t think he was that cute in the book … but … then when I made it, I actually squealed! He’s so cute with all his spikes and little red parts … you’re going to LOVE him! So, let’s get started.
It’s here: another Friday another Christi Friesen tutorial … well inspired by her at least. In this first week of our “Down Under” book, we are deciphering and creating Aborigine style artwork. Wow – this is an immense topic with thousands of design possibilities. I challenge you to do a google search for “Aborigine artwork photos” and see what pops up … or just click here. So for today … I’m bringing you some awesome Aborigine artwork and a tutorial on how to do it too … Read More

Well it’s here … the final project in Christi Friesen’s “Cats” book. *insert tears here* As we have gone through these tutorials, I have tried to save the biggest or best projects for last with the idea that after 2-3 weeks of practice you have worked yourself up to the “bigger” item. I hope that this has helped many of you succeed in creating your final projects for each month. Last month I received a lot of “kudos” for having a PDF tutorial that you could download, print, and take into your studios to do your final project. This month I think I’ve given you a little taste of everything: standard tutorials, a video tutorial, and a PDF tutorial. If there’s something else that you are craving, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. Read More
