Israel’s Shulamit Raanan adds the grand finale to our polymer fireworks display. A mid-week holiday makes it hard to know when to stop.
Not so much red, white and blue this year but a more somber yet whimsical look sculpted in polymer.
Doreen considers the immigrants in her family. Donna looks at resistance. Amy is all about heart.
How would you translate this July 4?
Melbourne’s Leanne Fergeus makes you believe you’re looking at a painting on a small canvas in her most recent series of polymer and acrylic brooches and pendants.
As her 100 Day project winds down she’s just hitting her stride with a whole series of acrylics.
Go to Instagram to look closely at the rich canvas texture of these mini-paintings. She paints thickly on a larger sheet and cuts the polymer into pieces that she backs with a thick black layer.
It was a logical progression for illustrator and Zentangle enthusiast Anita Long (neeneeree) from Indiana to translate her drawings into polymer canes. The detail and dimension in this cane have given her enough material to last through the end of her 100 Day project. You can follow along on her Facebook and Instagram.
In the last few days of the project, she’s had a burst of energy and playing with layering translucent clay, alcohol inks, silver leaf, embossing powder, and acrylic paint. Her stunning progress may make you want to consider joining in the next 100 Day creative marathon.
