One look at Christina Cassidy’s profile photos on Facebook and you’ll understand why she draws horses so beautifully on polymer clay. She’s grown up with animals and is surrounded by them.
Though she no longer has horses, she owned and worked with them for many years and they remain her muse and the subject of most of her polymer art on Etsy.
Her etherial fine-lined ink drawings are modern Lascaux Cave paintings that capture the essence of the animals. “I love drawing small and drawing on polymer clay is wonderful, it’s so forgiving and inspiring,” she says.
This 1 7/8″ x 1 1/2″ Copper Paint Horse Trotting pin has a white polymer base. Chris drew on the baked form with India and copper inks adding light green and blue inks for the background. She seals her works with a protective finish. Here’s where we first discovered her.
Ohio’s Kimberly Arden was surprised when a gallery gobbled up all she had of her new summer design. We aren’t surprised. Kim’s design draws you in as she layers bullseye slices and leaf shapes over a scrap stripe background.
Some of the bullseyes and leaves are translucent which adds to the dense underwater garden illusion.The summer colors make this a design to dive into.
