Young’s snowflake cutouts

Camille Young (CamilleArt) usually creates polymer clay figures and toys but she ventures out to stretch other muscles from time to time. Recently she fashioned charming snowflake ornaments using only four or five small cookie cutters and rounds of polymer clay stacked on top one another.

Zoom in to see how Camille turned the cutters various ways, generating more angles and patterns. Paint, texturing and a few seed beads make these simple techniques intriguing and complex.

Christmas may be over but it never hurts to keep an eye out for successful ideas. And snowflakes will be with us for a few months.

During this year-end week I’ll be trying to put some perspective on the past year and start envisioning the next. I’m excited to see what’s ahead.

    I’ve never considered snowflakes to have “depth,” before, but I suppose in their miniscule way, they must. What a fascinating, innovative way to look at them!

      These are absolutely charming. I like that she added gold to them.

        My house loves Camille and her artwork! Her figures for fangamer.net are the link in polymer for my son and me. He woke up early today and was thrilled to see “his” Camille featured here.
