Ranger Inks

These inks were all the rage at the last conference I went to. I should have paid more attention but I try very hard not to get thrown off course by the lastest sparkle and flash. The word is that Hobby Lobby carries these Ranger Inks.

I can’t tell you much about these Adirondack Alcohol Inks other than that they gave the clay a watercolor/metallic effect that was quite pleasant. You should have seen the user’s hands though…completely and permanently dyed. Rubber gloves are highly recommended.

Here’s a bead made by Donna Kato using the inks.

Online Inspirations

It’s been a pleasure to discover gems like those on Kathleen Dustin’s site as I begin to build a list of links to polymer artists. What treasures you’ll find online.

If you’re in need of inspiration, revisit the artists’ sites on the “links” page in the green bar at the top of this page.

Painting in Space

That’s what James Lehman of Akron, Ohio, calls his work in polymer. You’ll want to spend some time wandering through his site. The size of his works is inspiring…way beyond the teeny things we sometimes get caught up in. His work is also pictured in the 400 Polymer Clay Designs book.
