Clearing and Claying

Clearing and Claying

My primary workspace at Mama’s House is the kitchen counter. I need to clear it so I can empty the upper cabinets, clean and reline them.  I create a little, too, while I’m at it. Today’s play:


These were baked in my small white toaster oven at 250F for 30 minutes with no burning!

The lady in yellow is Marilyn Davenport who comes all the way from Sevierville, TN! Today she demonstrated a polymer quilt technique!Laura Sheaffer and I attended.

Since Laura is an accomplished quilter, this was right up her alley!Marilyn was a knowledgable teacher. It was an inspiring and memorable session!

Polymer and Paint

Polymer and Paint

Today’s experiment:Remember the black butterfly I cast in Sculpey Soufflé polymer back in January?

Its been baked, and today I painted it with Lumiere paints. I used a dry paint technique with angled bristle brushes. I used a liner on the body. 

I had lots of paint leftover, so I brushed some gold on a red piece I had molded, cast, and baked.

The Lumiere paints have lots of shine, so I think I’ll finish these with a satin glaze.

Polymer and Putty

Today’s experiment:
The blue butterfly above is a carved piece of clam shell from China. I made a mold of it from Amazing Mold Putty (yellow,) and cast it with Sculpey Soufflé in black. 

I’ve used the Soufflé before and thought its extra soft texture would make it easier to fill the mold. I trimmed the excess with scissors and a box cutter. I have not baked it, yet.

Here’s the mold putty:
