< Polymer clay blackberry earrings > A simple project but definitely wearable! Aluminum foil core, base from violet+black+blue PC, "drupelets" of the same blend, a hint of liquid PC on the surface for a matte shine.
Rabbit astronaut | Polymer clay brooch/pendant I made a simple base-body, cured it and attached head and hands (at the "wrist") with wire (armature also in ears). Covered with the uniform and made details. Acrylics for antiquing and face. Pre-cured eyes. Two (failed) attempts at helmet. But by chance the transparent part turned yellow and looks very realistic.
<Polymer clay flame/lava earrings> Wanted to work with colour and 3D forms -some of the less explored areas for me. Experimented with skinner blend and stacked layers to get the desired look for the central part. Added "branches" and baked again. Made "grout" with liquid and raw PC. Followed tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4X9pCeZQxug) but couldn't make folds, just texture.
<Polymer clay diorama pendant - dwarf in the forest> After 2 idle months, I finally made my 1st shadowbox pendant. "Case": copper PC with a hint of gold. I had some problems with the first attempt for a "glass" front (epoxy resin drying on wax paper ended up with texture;then I used the removable part of tape as surface). Wire loop for hanging. Antiquing with acrylics..
<Polymer clay harpist brooch> The "harp" has a wire armature and beading wire for "strings" (looped around head pins and held on the bottom with crimp beads -covered with PC). I did the figurine in multiple stages (baking), to correct the face, arms, dress etc. The dress folds could have been better. Gold powder added w/ LPC.
<Polymer clay deer bracelet>Stage 1. Wire armature for antlers. Stage 2. Covering with golden PC and curing. Stage 3. Making the bangle and curing. Stage 4. Rough head form with aluminum foil armature, beads for eyes and antlers in place; curing. Stage 5. Head details and curing. Stage 6. Golden blend on the inside of bangle. Stage 7. The dreaded painting with acrylics. Stage 8. Sanding, buffing, varnish.
