I think I finally found my polymer clay niche. I have been trying to create with polymer clay for several years. I thought it was a perfect fit for my jewelry making. I thought it would be good practice for working with precious metal clay... it wasn't, for me. But now...
I've been playing again with pin toppers!
Fruit was a natural and a pear and apple appeared in my brain but I had no red or yellow. So...a trip yesterday to AC Moore, a 50% coupon, 10% teacher discount, AND a $10 reward certificate got me the colors I needed. I made these last night. But...I realized I had no brown for the stems so I mixed a little pink and green and...pears!
I stopped at Joann's today to get some white, brown and black. So a 40% coupon, $5 off anything!, 15% teacher discount, and after dinner out with coworkers... I made an apple,
a bird's nest,
and this darling red bird on a branch.
Oh, and this little mushroom.
I even created this display pincushion in one of my vintage parfait dishes. (Don't look too close I haven't sewn it closed yet.)
I write this blog both to share my new
obsession creative endeaver and to warn others...pin toppers are addictive!
