Christmas is coming and I have been having a ball or should I say bell? I made this cute Santa Claus sitting on a bell to use as a Christmas Ornament. I used glitter red, white, black and flesh colored polymer clay. I built him on top of the bell to give the piece some interest.
I have so many more ideas and would love to hear or see any of your Christmas ideas with polymer clay!
I love doing Mixed Media on so many different surfaces. I like to show other Artists that you don’t have to be stuck by not having canvas or the normal to do Art. I took a piece of thick Muslin and ripped some stitches from all sides to give it the raggedy look and then painted yellow.
Once the paint was dry I layed a full stencil down and used Faber- castell black gelato in the middles and sprayed glitter mist all over the full stencil and let it dry. I love this messy part t is beautiful, but i love to add more and more!
My favorite thing is the gelatos. They go on so easy and have so many different applications that you can really go crazy. I will say I did restrain myself from going wild and I sprayed my fabric with water and then added different pinks all around and used my brush to disperse their color and add depth. I then outlined the stencil (which was a rose) with the Faber-castell pitt Artist Pen in dark pink to make the roses stand out more.
Drawing is one of my favorite things to do so I thought I would add a quick drawing I did and kind of colored her in a bit playing with ideas. Once I had her drawn I then cut her out and glued her down to the muslin. I painted her with acrylic paints to add more depth to her look.
One of my favorite things to do is add quotes. I use them on paintings, in my journals and in my every day life. Anais Nin is one of my favorite poets and a quote I live by and by which made me try out for the Design Team was the quote I used on my project. “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” I added that and a few embellishments to her in her hair and around her neck for a few extra “Kelly touches” I call them. I love the way it came out and it will hang on the wall by my desk to remind me to take one risk a day and not be afraid.
This past week has been so much fun for me. I have had the fun experience of using Magic Transfer Paper. It is a paper you print on using a laser printer and then add your picture to raw clay and burnish it, run under water and the paper melts away. You then bake your item and it is magical. I showed the process on my Tuesday Schmoozeday live show as well as how to use crayons as a background and some other fun things! Here is the link Kellys SHOW
I am now experimenting for other ways to use the Magic Transfer Paper and as I have success will share it with you all.
