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.

Let’s Remember What WIP Wednesday is …

What’s Going on in KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio?

It’s been a busy few weeks around here. There’s so much going on that I don’t know where to start! Often I post oodles of photos on Instagram during the week so you can follow and stay up to date with me. 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.

  • WIP Wednesday in KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio | CLICK for tutorial links, ideas, inspiration, artist focus, & moreWelcome to Kater’s Acres. This week I got a new Erin Condren print in the mail. It says “It’s about to get REALLY good.” Want to know where I hung it? To the left of the entrance to my polymer clay studio. Oh yeah! [Save $10 off your new planner purchase with this link]
  • Coffee addict? YEP! I made myself this coffee brooch in the studio to help feed the addiction. [See it on Instagram here]
  • This faux embroidery necklace was made using a  B’Sue Boutiques silver plated stamping. The hollow back I used for the “frame” of my necklace, allowing the sparrow on the back to be a nice added “reverse effect.”
  • See that shelf completely filled with Fimo polymer clay? Yep, that’s an entire shelf of the new Fimo Professional, the full line of which is now being carried at Hobby Lobby.
  • Mocha Latte, is the newest studio supervisor, you can see her in two of these photos.
  • Those three bugs in the corner were sent to my swap partners for the Polymer Clay Adventure swap. I will show you the bugs that were sent to me in another post.
  • What do you get when you mix a boa with polymer clay? You get an awesome monster doll that you can make yourself for Halloween! Get the tutorial here.
  • All those gorgeous sparkly bits? Those are gorgeous vintage stones from B’Sue Boutiques.
  • Be sure you don’t miss the FREE tutorial on how to make your own fantasy wings.
  • The newest Parker’s Clayful Tutorials Club tutorial featured a patterned project to make your own bear wall hanging with changeable seasonal decorations. [Get the tutorial here]
  • Last but not least, this cross was made for ABC Ohio’s Executive Minister who is retiring at the end of the 2015 year. [See a closeup on Instagram here]

PRO TIP: Look at What You Already Have

Polymer Clay Tip - Keep Your Cane Ends | Fall Polymer Clay Mason Jar Table Centerpiece Tutorial by KatersAcresIt’s extremely easy to take the things we see as “useless” and commit them to our scrap bowl. I implore you, at least WAIT until the end of your claying session to do anything with those scraps (including wadding them up and confiscating them into the scrap pile). At left, you will see just one such example. Use your cane ends, don’t throw them out. Cane ends are one of my FAVORITE “useless” parts of clay.


 

Pin of the Week:

Photo from Garie International

The pin of the week is something that I have found online, pinned to one of my pin boards on Pinterest, and has received the largest amount of repins or hearts. This time around the Pin of the Week goes to Garie International’s Image Transfer Technique that can be done without liquid clay.

Current Repin Count: 252
