My sister loves grilled cheese, and she loves miniature things. So I made her a mini grilled cheese for her birthday this month. It is made from polymer clay, and…UV resin. The UV curing resin has been wonderful, and I have so many future projects I’d like to make with it.
I wanted to share the artist that inspired me to try making my jar lamps. She uses paper clay, which dries and doesn’t need to bake, for her creations. They are AWESOME! I hope everyone can be inspired by her use of simple materials to make beautiful objects. I really want to try the medium out someday as well.
A lot of my other time has been with my indoor garden. I am growing tomatoes, flowers, and herbs for permanent indoor plants. I also started 3 batches of potatoes for seeding this spring, cabbage, squash, and cucumbers. It seemed like a fun idea to share for people that want to garden on a budget in the winter.
First I cut out 2 to 3 holes with a paring knife in the tub bottom, then filled the tub with marble chips from the garden supply store (enough to fully cover the bottom). Then I covered the rocks with the compressed potting soil (a whole package). To catch the water, I put the tub lid under the container and voila!
I also started a bunch of climbers to grow on chain link fencing around our home this spring as well in the bottom left. The little yellow guy is my first squash (it only took 2 months lol)!
This is a character from an old cartoon Ed, Edd and Eddy. It is made of polymer clay, and tin foil. He is goofy and was fun to make. I am currently working on the mermaid for the diorama, and a sweater for my dog out of chunky yarn.
I made my husband the a Viking Pupa for Valentine’s day. It is the cutest character from the show, highly recommend it! It is made of tin foil, Sculpey clay, and acrylic paint…I also added Sculpey dimensional magic gel on his helmet to make a gem.
My husband loves all of the Dragonball sagas, and I wanted to make him a figure to add to his collection. This little guy is supposed to be all powerful, but I also think he is really cute. I made him with tin foil, sculpey clay, and acrylic paint.
