Good hair day down under

Good hair day from Wendy Moore on PolymerClayDaily.com

Whether you’re having a good hair day or not, these face canes from Australia’s Wendy Moore demand attention. Check out the details. Admire the hairstyles, catch the young vibe. The earrings are some of Wendy’s class samples for an upcoming workshop. There are more on her Instagram.

Wendy bought a pair of earrings from another Australian up and coming polymer/fiber artist, Heidi Helyard. Wendy found Heidi’s earring shape so wearable that she used it for these creations.

Heidi weaves fibers through holes on her polymer bases. We’ll want to cover her more thoroughly soon.

Recover from your holiday, go comb your hair. Let’s head into fall.

 

PolyPetal celebration

Cheery PolyPetals for the BPCG 20th anniversary on PolymerClayDaily

Carol Blackburn’s teardrop-shaped petals are made from cheery combinations of stripes, blends, and patterns in colors that sing.

That’s because her workshop on September 23 and 24 for the British Polymer Clay Guild celebrates their 20th anniversary, an occasion for singing! 

The Poly Petals’ domed dimensions and varied teardrop sizes add a carefree note.

See them again on Facebook. There are lots of tempting workshops listed for the event. Here’s hoping you have time to play with clay on this happy Labor Day.

Hollow polymer vessels

Cynthia Tinapple builds her own hollow forms with an ancient air on PolymerClayDaily.com

This hollow 5″ tall raku-looking vessel is completely polymer. This is one of my new organic forms that don’t need glass or metal or even paper to hold a shape.

I didn’t quite like the pan pastel colors that I applied before baking so I kept adding surface treatments.

Crackle medium added a tactile surface and oil paint gave it an aged finish. A dash of gilders paste made this lumpy, organic shape glow.

You will laugh at the form that this pot was built on. Let’s just say that you shouldn’t throw your pantyhose away just yet. More pictures on this weekend’s StudioMojo.

We’re thinking of PCD readers affected by Hurricane Harvey, hoping that you’re safe.
