Wackadoodle bunnies

Nicole Johnson's Wackadoodle bunnies hop right out of her shop on PolymerClayDaily.com

New York’s Nichol Johnson (mealymonster) creates Wackadoodle bunnies that have scampered right out of her online store. They’re so cute that they’re hard to catch!

How can you not fall for a purple big-eyed polka-dotted creature that looks quite scared?

Watch them dance on Nichol’s Instagram.

Hop right over to StudioMojo if you want to catch up with this week’s polymer news. There are two more tutorials from Clayathon plus lots of spring creations. It’s the perfect remedy for your spring fever. Join us!

Texas art machine in gear

Texas’ Susan D (suzicq) outfits her hearts with antlers, crowns, flowers, and flames. “My studio is constantly overflowing because everything is fodder for the art machine,” says Susan.

Her tastes run from Voodoo dolls to goblins and monsters so these slightly dark hearts continue her vibe which you can catch on Etsy.

Over at StudioMojo, we’ll look at our own art machines. What are we making these days and why? Plus, the 3D printed cutters of my own design arrived. Would custom designed cutters help your process? Join us for Saturday morning musing.

Studio monsters

Nichole Johnson loves monster season on PolymerClayDaily.com

New York’s Nicole Johnson (MealyMonsters) is coming up on her favorite time of year. Her witches have taken up residence in their teacups. The pumpkin heads are everywhere on her Instagram

Note new details like dripping noses on her popular witches. Where will the monsters show up in your studio? In the spoons perhaps?

Polymer fly on the wall

Gesine Kratzner’s Blobhouse characters provide a whole kennel of wall pets, monsters that dangle from the ceiling and tabletop critters.

You may recognize your own friends and neighbors in her current series of People and Their Pets.

Enjoy Gesine Kratzner's odd assortment of polymer pets on PolymerClayDaily.com

If you could use a good laugh, visit Gesine’s Instagram, and her Etsy. She’s also made a rollicking fun Advent calendar for the past two years. Let’s hope she’s planning one for 2017 that we can follow.

Gesine’s Fly on the Wall shows me what I’ve always wanted to be. In fact, I’ll be your fly on the wall at this weekend’s opening of the Into the Forest Exhibit in Pittsburgh.

Monster polymer

Leah Lester's monsters migrated from cakes to PolymerClayDaily.com

Washington’s Leah Lester started out as a cake decorator. In 2010 she decided to put the monsters she loves on the top of a cake.

Her friends went wild and asked her to make them out of something more durable.

Since then Leah’s created thousands of Little Lazies and sold them to her Etsy fans. Her most recent batch will be for sale on Big Cartel on Sept 28 with others on Facebook and Instagram.

Her time-lapse videos will kick off your week at high speed.

Monster Monday

If you tracked monster storms all weekend you may be in the mood to purge your world of all its monsters.

Monster Monday courtesy of Anthony (Ace of Clay) on PolymerClayDaily.com

Watch as Michigan’s Anthony, Ace of Clay, turns his demons into pins. With ferocious teeth, of course.

Some texture, a few wrinkles and a dusting of dark shadows around the eyes heightens the ominous look. Some have sunlight color-changing eyes, others glow in the dark.

Anthony also keeps switch plates, phone cases and sculpted figures in stock. If you’re squeamish, you’ll prefer his colorful imitative sugar skulls. Look on Instagram, Etsy, and Facebook.
