I recently found some old packs of white and black polymer clay in my craft stash and I found some clay inspiration on Pinterest at about the same time so I thought I'd play around with it a little bit. I think the most I've made, in the past, from polymer clay has been snowmen noses (I found orange clay in my stash too!). So I really have no idea what I'm doing with it....but it's fun to play with and it brings back memories of grade school art class and pinch pots. Do you remember those?
Visit this link to see some of my Pinspiration if you'd like to.
I'm not to sure where I'm going with any of these white pieces...they involved rubber stamps (the butterflies and the bird) and paper lace (the white discs). The little bird turned into a fridge magnet and the white butterfly ended up looking dirty and so it landed in my "ehhh" pile. The white discs make me think of Winter and Christmas so I'll be pondering their future for a bit.
I like the black butterfly and I added a cord and bead so now it's a necklace....I might even wear it! : )
This clay stuff is a bit out of my element....but there are so many beautiful things to be made from it and I'm anxious to try and make some of my own pieces.
This piece below is also polymer clay - made to look like a glass slide (it's in her Etsy shop). Someday I'd like to commission Angie to make slides like this but with photos of my grandbabies.
Finally - I love this piece she has listed! I've already asked Angie if she'd use one of my photos to make something similar and she said yes. Now I just have to find the photo....it's one of my mother when she was a little girl...and it's somewhere in my piles and boxes of photos!! I think it would look wonderful in this format - a new family heirloom!
Thanks for your beautiful work Angie and thanks for inspiring me to try something new!!
