Taste of France

Amarena on PCDaily

I’m checking out the work of Toulouse’s Amarena to help me “get my French on” for my flight to Europe on Friday.

Digging through my scarf drawer and rooting through my earring collection as I pack for EuroSynergy2, Amarena’s vibe is guiding me.

She has an easy, self-assured way with clay and color that I’d like to pull off? Possible? I can try.

Get your first taste of France on Amarena’s Facebook, Flickr and Pinterest and stay tuned for reports from the upcoming conference.

Cut and run polymer

There’s nothing quite as nice as a free tutorial to put you in a studio mood. This YouTube video from Monica Resta (MoClay) should do the trick.

Cutting and folding polymer is becoming her specialty and she offers several variations on this theme on her YouTube channel. A few straight cuts and careful shaping turn a stack of clay into summery earrings in a hurry. Your head will reel with ideas for variations. Read more about Monica on Facebook.

Here Ron Lehocky piles his patriotic hearts to raise flag awareness and money for the Kids Center. Note the wavy blade stripes.

Barb Handy (BarbiesBest) creates themed beads for all occasions. Stars and stripes are one of her specialties. PCD has followed along for years as Barb widened and expanded her Etsy offerings.

If you’re a caner, you may prefer Carola Greiser’s (polymerclayshed) version of holiday fireworks found on Instagram. Have a star-spangled weekend.
