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.

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.
Meg Newberg has been on a translucent jag with her Polymer Clay Workshop monthly tutorials lately. If you like canes, Meg’s monthly dose of new ideas via email can fuel your cane brain at a very reasonable price.
You can glean some translucent ideas from her YouTube video (no audio) but you’ll need the written tutorial to get a complete load of goodies. Little translucent canes go a long way and Meg shows you how to stretch their usefulness.
I’m on vacation this week and while I thought I could keep up on the road, I was mistaken. Sometimes you just have to back away from the machine. No promises for the rest of this family week.
Berlin’s Izabela Nowak’s new line of Slice Up jewelry takes us back to interlocking paper constructions of childhood. These round beads are assembled from flat disks so they must be put together after baking.
She continues with other treatments, playing with shapes and colors that reveal different colors and patterns on each surface.
Look at Izabela’s growing collection of color-shifting beads on Flickr.
Did PCD miss a day? Why yes we did. Let’s say it was in celebration of summer and in an attempt to clear my desk before leaving for family time out west. StudioMojo is fresh and ready for your Saturday enjoyment but that Thursday post slipped right by me. It happens. If you feel you’re missing out, join us!
