Dawn Schiller's polymer candlewyke

Dawn Schiller’s “candlewyck” has me spooked as I lock up the house and leave for vacation. Will these odd little creatures sense my departure and start popping up from the candlesticks when I pull out of the driveway? Her polymer oddfae suddenly make me a believer. What an imagination she has.

Arizona from a Paula Pindroh illustration

Thanks to Paula Pindroh for the polymer vacation illustration. My husband and I are off to Arizona to visit friends and family, grabbing wi-fi at McDonalds and motels along the way. We’re heading toward sun and heat with polymer supplies in the trunk, naturally.

Susan Lomuto has posted a thoughtful wrap-up of Synergy on her DailyArtMuse.

          Dawn’s “candlewyck” is wonderful. I especially appreciate his amazing hands/fingers. Paula’s PC Arizona saguaro piece so much fun. Hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip out to our sunny state and may your PC stay COOL! Things heat up here so quickly that I keep PC in a jumbo ice chest when I travel, especially if I have to leave my van parked in the sun while I get a bite to eat.

            Dawn’s work is AMAZING! Soo incredibly expressive!

            Thanks for including my Arizona spot illustration! Cynthia, I will have something special for you soon. I’ve been away from MY polymer clay supply box for about 2 weeks & can’t wait to get my hands on it! ;~)

                  Arizona? Clay? TRUNK?? OMG… get a cooler and a couple of bags of ice. I lived in AZ and that heat is nothing to play around with.
