in KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio
WOW! What a busy past few weeks in my studio. I had plenty of tutorials to write for Club Members, lots of playing to do, and even a few challenges to figure out as well. I think I kept myself plenty busy. I’ve separated the above graphic into quadrants so you can better follow along and see what I’m doing.
Quadrant 1 – Top Left
- I’m a nut for color and I LOVE to make my own. Many of my custom colors I can not reproduce because I use scraps to make them. (Top – Bottom, Left to Right)
- Here’s a few of the colors I worked up over the past few weeks: glittery black for my galaxy dragons.
- This luscious green Skinner blend I used on some leaf canes.
- The color palette here (silver, black, & navy) I used as the base for the color of my shark. Get the tutorial here.
- Oh juicy color! This 5 color coordinating palette is gorgeous and I can’t wait to reveal the finished product to you. Get a FREE tutorial on making your own coordinating color palette here.
- This purple, silver, & black Skinner blend I made for my Andromeda, a galaxy dragon. You can see her here.
- And of course all this yummy color has to be created with a cup of coffee. Right?! Right.
Quadrant 2 – Top Right
- Here’s Andromeda, the first released Galaxy Dragon. She was released for week 25 of the Polymer Clay Challenge. You can see and adopt her here.
- This lovely (and very tiny) bead was made in conjunction with B’Sue Boutiques ‘Work Table Wednesdays” two weeks ago.
- And this adorable little jointed dragon was made for week 27 of the Polymer Clay Challenge. She will be available this week in my Etsy shop.
Quadrant 3 – Bottom Left
- This Sutton Slice birdhouse is an example of the project you are being asked to make for the Pavelka Project’s July Challenge. Get the tutorial here.
- Don’t miss this week’s tip on how to place glitter on your project with exact precision. Read all about it here.
- Did you say glitter?! Oh how I love little jars of glitter!
- I finally got that tiny embroidered bead (shown above) all strung up and ready to wear. I think this one I will keep too. I love it!
- And as I shared on Instagram last week … here’s this little bitty set of chompers (teeth) that I used on Shrapnel. Get the tutorial to make your own shark here.
Quadrant 4 – Bottom Right
- Here he is, meet Shrapnel Shark! My nod to the Discover Channel’s Shark Week. Get the tutorial to make your own opened mouth shark with teeth here.
- Completely inspired by Christi Friesen are this flower pendants. One of these I will keep, the other my Mom will give to her teacher next week.
- The 4th of July found me making a few firecrackers to decorate with. Get the tutorial to make your own here.
- This color palette of tiny teardrops is absolutely colorful and reminds me of some smoothies!
- And last but not least, glittered flower centers. See what I did with them in this FREE Flower Head Pins tutorial. Get it here.
