Polymer Clay Dolls

My first attempt at making polymer clay dolls. Now, I thought it would be quite easy to make things look cute, BUT I ended up with super scary looking dolls that aren't cute at all!

I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with them haha.

I started sanding the one on the bottom right and before I knew it, the black colour on her hair was being sanded away!

I think I need more practice!

Mokume Gane Flashback to the 70's Jewellery

I was experimenting yet again with different colours of polymer clay to make pendants using the mokume gane technique. What I ended up with was a super bright, pyschadelic looking colour combination!

I made the pendants 'puffy', they look nicer but it was such a pain to put resin on it! Drips everywhere! I think I resined them all 4 times altogether! If anyone knows of an easier way to resin curved surfaces, please point me in the right direction!

Polymer Clay Umbrella inspired Pendant

I did a little experimenting yesterday and ended up with this, it turned out ok, I just need to find some proper tools to make it a bit neater!

Polymer Clay work in progress yet again....

More experimenting polymer clay, this time by adding swarovski crystals into the clay.

I'm still waiting for the resin to dry, yet again. I'm liking how the resin magnifies the crystals.
