Welcome back to another WIP Wednesday in KatersAcres polymer clay studio. Today not only will you see some things I’ve been working on, but you’ll also get a few of my recommendations as well. ENJOY and don’t forget to join me in Parker’s Clay Tribe, a free polymer clay FaceBook group.
Works in Progress at KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio
- This adorable bright colored dragon is Knip. She’s a jointed dragon made for week 10 of the 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge. You can adopt her here.
- While it doesn’t look like a lot, this little bundle of polymer clay is a perfectly coordinated palette. Learn how to make your own here.
- This is one of my stash drawers filled with all kinds of brass & metal fun. Most of these goodies I have purchase at B’Sue Boutiques. Be sure you check her out.
- When I make new colors of clay, I always make samples and place them in my Big Book of Clay. Learn how to make your own here.
- There are few things as fun as sipping hot tea and reading The Polymer Arts before bed. Get your copy today.
- Parker’s Clay Tribe March Swap theme is “Butterflies.” Learn to make your own here with this FREE Polymer Clay Butterfly Tutorial.
- This adorable dragon is Blinkyn. He’s a jointed dragon made for week 11 of the 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge. You can adopt him here.
- Another sneak peak into one of my stash drawers filled with all kinds of Steampunk fun. Most of these goodies I have also purchase at B’Sue Boutiques.
- Mocha Latte is just resting here in my studio. She hasn’t been really good about “being good” when she’s down there with me, but this week she’s been in my studio every day and has been quite the good girl. (I think she’s growing up.)
- This adorable little duck in her umbrella was the most recent project sent to Parker’s Clayful Tutorials Club members. You can get the project here if you’re not a member.
- My favorite little tool set. This little set of drill bits is great for mokume gane, but you’ll see another use for it here shortly.
- Have you heard about Parker’s Clay Tribe, polymer clay fairy door challenge? If not, come and read the post and join us!
- Last but not least, front and center, I had a big polymer clay haul this past week. YES! Bring on the fun!
Come and Join the Fun!
Online communities are a LOT of fun. Parker is hard at work gathering clay enthusiasts and has opened up his own clay group: Parker’s Clay Tribe. It’s a FREE group for anyone who plays with clay on FaceBook. We have swaps, challenges, prizes, and even giveaways. Anyone is welcome to join. Parker’s Clay Tribe is sponsored by Parker’s Clayful Tutorials Club. Consider becoming a member and learn to make your own whimsical creations.
The Polymer Clay Adventure (Year Two) Has Begun!
Hundreds of people have now signed up for the 2016 Polymer Clay Adventure (including yours truly). Are you one of them? I can’t stress to you enough how phenomenal this Adventure is. You get to try a wide variety of projects, techniques, and styles. Right now we are working through Anke Humpert’s earring design class. Anke is a well known and well published polymer clay teacher. I invite each of you to join us, it’s such good fun! AND … There are now three ways to pay for your Adventure: full payment, a gift for someone you love, or pay for it over 3 monthly installments.
My favorite by far this year is Laurie Mika’s home and studio tour and he tiny tin shrines class. WOW! What fun. You can read about my project I did from her class here. This course is just one of 23 others that you will be taking in the 2016 Polymer Clay Adventure.
FYI: I do tend to post photos on Instagram during the week so you can follow and stay up to date with me and what I’m working on (and get a surprise coupon every once and awhile too). Feel free to come over and follow me on instagram so that you can see behind the scenes work in my studio as well as some tips & tricks as I post them.
