2015 Polymer Clay Challenge
My Week One Challenge Results
The first week of the 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge ends tomorrow. Here are the 7 (yes, I may have gone overboard) pieces that I created from start to finish for week one. Meet each of them below. Have you created your items yet?
My Personal Challenge
As part of the 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge, each person who joined was asked to make a commitment and challenge themselves to start and finish no less than one new item a week. For some people they may choose to do more. You can read my full commitment here, but basically I committed to creating one new dragon and one new Parker or StoryBook Scene every week. I was so inspired this past week that I actually made 7 pieces, all with a Steampunk theme.
You can read all about Oliver, Mordecai, & Bessie here. In short however, each of these dragons were made from a custom color palette blends of a metallic green, coppery-bronze, and light golden metallic. Each color was hand blended and created for the respective dragon.
Additional Component parts used: Each dragon also boast Steampunk gears & bits from Lisa Pavelka, mica powder accents using Perfect Pearls, hand blended acrylic paint detailing, brass gears from B’Sue Boutiques, clock hands, flat-backed crystals, and vintage chain.
ADOPT THE DRAGONS HERE
Parker is feeling adventurous … when he found the dragons, he thought that he should get in on the Steampunk fun too. Each of these Parker’s were made from a custom color palette blends of a metallic green, coppery-bronze, and light golden metallic, and deep silver. Each color was hand blended and created for the respective Parker figurine.
Additional Component parts used: Each Parker also boast Steampunk gears & bits from Lisa Pavelka, mica powder accents using Perfect Pearls, acrylic paint detailing, brass gears from B’Sue Boutiques, clock hands and vintage chain.
