Projects from the Polymer Clay TV Design Team

I'm honored that Ilysa Ginsburg and Kira Slye of Polymer Clay TV have invited me to be on their design team. They generously supply me and the other team members with samples of their cool products each month and ask us to produce two projects using at least two of the tools. This has been so much fun, and now I want to share some of the results with you!

August's Projects

The products for August included some beautiful round, mandala-like rubber stamps, a set of molds with all the letters of the alphabet on bunting-style penants, a fancy scalloped border-cutting set, and a pack of punchinella (a by-product of sequin manufacture that makes a great patterned stencil).

 This whimsical dragon keeps me company in my laundry room.

I patterned his skin by using punchinella stencils and acrylic paint. The scales on his wings were formed with border cutters and accented with metallic paint.

I was flattered that Kira and Ilysa used the above photo in their marketing efforts. The base of this project is a thrift-store frame covered with white polymer, which I texture-stamped and inked. The border cutters created a nice lacy effect. I used the round stamps (and some real ribbon and lollipop sticks) to make baby rattles. But the most fun was creating the bunting with the PCTV molds and some stamping ink!

I'll share the photos of my September projects here very soon!
