Back at Last!!

I can't believe how long ago my last entry to this blog was!
I haven't had time for anything creative for so long but now I'm back and hope to be posting more stuff on here in the months to come.
The other day, I finally took the plunge and had my first foray into the world of polymer clay.
I've been dying to get my hands on some ever since buying the fabulous book  'Mixed Media Mosaics' by Laurie Mika. It's by far my favourite art book and I never tire of looking at her wonderful and inspiring work.

So, anyway, here is what I've done so far which is mostly making a batch of faces, using a flexible mold from Enchanted Gallery. Sadly this lady doesn't ship to the UK but my lovely friend Stephany sent me this mold as a gift. I tried the wings to see just how thin I could make the clay....they are REALLY paper thin and look really pretty with mica powders dusted over the top of the white clay.
I used Sculpey Premo clay for all these pieces and the wings were made using a stamp by Invoke Arts, as was the frame which also features a text stamp by Paper Artsy.

One of these days I shall make these into pretty things and will post the results.....

Oh Netti - lucky you with the moulds - it all looks fantastic and I have always wanted to have a got at that.

So much to play with in craft isn't there!
