Sumptuous Color

Haunani on PCDaily

As you contemplate turning the page into 2017 let’s look ahead to Synergy4 next August. The theme is appropriately, A New Leaf.

I’m helping Lindly Haunani spruce up her website for the new year with exciting concepts that she’ll be teaching at Synergy4.

Haunani on PCDaily

Lindly’s Sumptuous Sagacious Color class will teach you five useful strategies that you can use to enhance harmony. You’ll learn how to create blends and patterns scaled for smaller pieces with dramatic effect.

These sophisticated blends relate gently with each other. See more on her site and sign up early to learn the newest twists and turns of color in polymer. Keep up with Lindly on Facebook.

Raise a glass to turning over a new leaf this weekend! Happy New Year!

Memories in polymer

Lazy on PCDaily

A sad sweet moment from Seattle’s Leah Lazy (LittleLazies) after the death of Carrie Fisher and then her mother.

Polymer artist Leah was all prepared with her 2″ polymer princess. After the news, Leah said, “My heart is broken…but I am happy that for some reason my heart told me to make a Little Lazies Leia this year – I’m keeping this one. Rest In Peace, Princess.”

See more of the Little Lazies on Leah’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Etsy. She reminds us that polymer can be good for capturing memories of all sorts.

Festive polymer

Israel on PCDaily

New York’s Joan Israel celebrates Chanukah with this polymer menorah on canvas. Joan has a stash of caned, colored and textured polymer ready and waiting.

Once she finds a shapely glass bottle, she layers on slices of canes and turns them into sculptural gardens. Lately, she’s applied the same technique to canvases, painting in the background and then embellishing with polymer, inks, textures and metallics that create a rich and festive scene.

Her works are featured on her site, Instagram and Flickr.

May your holidays be filled with warmth and color.

Hanging polymer

Fedoruk on PCDaily

“I must have been an elf,” says Canada’s Ken Fedoruk, “It’s the only thing that explains my affinity and passion for developing Kenfolks, an assortment of handcrafted figures that I’ve been crafting since 1989.”

But not all Ken’s figures are your typical elves and Santas – as in this sparkly ornament called Christmas Elf – Sweetie Ice Cream Swirl

Oh, you’re going to have a good time browsing through Ken’s huge collection of polymer Christmas characters on Instagram, Facebook and the Kenfolks site.

Makes you think about the family members you might want to hang on the tree.

This elf needs to get back to her studio.
