Inside My Busy Polymer Clay Studio
Well, today would have been day 10 without an internet connection. Last week, in our sub-zero temperatures, our (and 93 other people) internet conked out … and never came back on. For the first few days I was okay. Then came the house cleaning, reading novels, & so much studio time. I forgot what it was like to be super-productive.
Work In Progress Report
What happens when your internet goes out? You learn the value of it … as well as the value of connectivity. This being said, I loved spending so much extra time in my polymer clay studio. I was really productive! Here’s some sneak peaks, clockwise.
- Sneak Peak: (Top Left) An upcoming Parker StoryBook Scene release. Adopt him in my Etsy store.
- Portable Studio: My hubby spent the majority of last week struggling with walking pneumonia. So, I transported my projects upstairs and spent time claying in the living room (for 2 days) and taking care of my husband.
- Pixelated Retro Cane: I continue to be very thankful to Bettina Welker for her tutorial on the Pixelated Retro Cane. It’s still one of my favorite versions of a Klimt cane.
- Pixelated Retro Cane Sheet: (Top right) Simply joining the same sides of a pixelated retro cane gives a gorgeous effect. This cane was no different.
- Embroidered Hearts: I made oodles of embroidered hearts because I adore the embroidery technique (here’s a tutorial with a bird pendant). Here’s the pendant I made for myself, and underneath it all 5 pendants: Mine, my Mom’s, & my 3 girlfriends who I see Monday.
- More Portable Studio: And just in case you wanted to see the color palette I chose for all my embroidered hearts, here it is!
- More Pixelated Retro Canes. Again, thanks Bettina!
- The juicy palette I used for one of the pixelated retro canes. After I picked it and got everything set out, I kind of thought it looked watermelon-yish … Get more color palette’s & prompts here.
- My LucyClay Tools, XXL CZExtruder I made all those awesome retro canes with. If you would like to purchase one of your own you can find all the distributors here.
- And last but not least, my mosaic cane for the 52 Weeks of Canes (see more on this on Friday’s post).
