Chandler on PCDaily

Victoria’s Gera Chandler lets her poppies climb off the top edge of this 16″ x 8″ canvas. She’s become expert at layering high intensity polymer scenes onto canvases, combining painting and sculpture.

Read Gera’s project in Polymer Clay Global Perspectives to learn her process. There are lots more examples on her blog and a bit on her Etsy shop.

You may have to look closely at Susan O’Neill’s canvas below to see where she’s headed. A pair of earrings hang from holes in the middle of the canvas. This dual purpose work allows the owner to wear the artwork or simply appreciate it on the wall.

You may also appreciate how she used her bird in a stunning pair of earrings.

Susan has long experimented with combining liquid polymer and gauze (here and here). You can also track her progress on Facebook.

If you’re considering moving to larger polymer works, canvas is obviously one good path.

    I love to see the scale of these get larger, Gera! It’s fantastic when you get to experience that wave of colour more intensely! Hope to see these in Ottawa? Or maybe Westport?

              Thanks for featuring me today Cynthia! I have used canvas and wooden board panels for the process. As Georgia mentioned- I’l l be teaching the technique in Ontario this September.
              Susan’s canvases are terrific. Fantastic idea to add wearable art as a component!
