She shows you how to make puffy polymer animal brooches using white polymer, some simple textures, and pan pastels (or chalks). Dana pops up on Instagram, Flickr, Facebook and Pinterest too. What a lovely gift for holiday playtime!
Her new POLYmerHEDRA are made of colorful Skinner-blended strips baked over a form (cotton or styrofoam balls perhaps). Carol had an earlier career in knitting so she’s very at home with woven, geometric shapes.
She doesn’t include the size. Are you seeing sleek contemporary ornaments? Earrings? Beads? Let the lovely possibilities shift your brain into gear and propel you into the studio.
Jayne Dwyer and Ron Lehocky collaborated on these dashing reindeer. Jayne’s a caning whiz and Ron’s a talented scavenger who turns lowly scraps from other artists (Jayne’s cane ends in this example) into high art with a purpose.
So even if you’re dashing today, take a moment to appreciate the little things, small blessings and serendipitous collaborations.
