Memories in polymer

Lazy on PCDaily

A sad sweet moment from Seattle’s Leah Lazy (LittleLazies) after the death of Carrie Fisher and then her mother.

Polymer artist Leah was all prepared with her 2″ polymer princess. After the news, Leah said, “My heart is broken…but I am happy that for some reason my heart told me to make a Little Lazies Leia this year – I’m keeping this one. Rest In Peace, Princess.”

See more of the Little Lazies on Leah’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Etsy. She reminds us that polymer can be good for capturing memories of all sorts.

Hanging polymer

Fedoruk on PCDaily

“I must have been an elf,” says Canada’s Ken Fedoruk, “It’s the only thing that explains my affinity and passion for developing Kenfolks, an assortment of handcrafted figures that I’ve been crafting since 1989.”

But not all Ken’s figures are your typical elves and Santas – as in this sparkly ornament called Christmas Elf – Sweetie Ice Cream Swirl

Oh, you’re going to have a good time browsing through Ken’s huge collection of polymer Christmas characters on Instagram, Facebook and the Kenfolks site.

Makes you think about the family members you might want to hang on the tree.

This elf needs to get back to her studio.

Staying warm with polymer

Walker on PCDaily

The UK’s Karen Walker (clayground) pays close attention to to textures and patterns in her fashionably dressed winter characters.

The faces may not reveal much but the plaid scarf, thermal weave, pleated pants and polka dots speak volumes.

Karen markets Cernit clay and these small figures are her specialty. Look at all the lovelies on her Facebook and Instagram.

Her free Snowman tutorial on YouTube is fun for a last-minute gift.

Whimsy for the weekend

BoingBoing featured Dayna Corbitt’s (WhimsyCalling) impossibly cute polymer clay figurines of whimsical and mythical animals.

This Olympia, WA artist quit her day job a month ago. “I found my happy place and it’s made of clay,” she says in a feature on BoredPanda. You’ll find her menagerie of real and fantasy creatures on Instagram, Facebook and Etsy.

Dayna’s Black Bear Cubs, 1 1/2″ high in their winter sweaters look ready for a chilly weekend. Enjoy it!

Making Santa in polymer

Carlton on PCDaily

Kentucky’s Keven Carlton has been looking for Santa. She started her search by sculpting these affable old fellows and she has a way with men.

Keven spends time giving them good teeth because she’s a dental hygienist and bad teeth would be unprofessional.

But somewhere along the line, her polymer imagination veered off course and she ended up with a heap of dissipated and debauched Santas that her Facebook friends are all talking about. They’re trying to locate the art show where these creatures can be purchased.

Creativity can take us on a wild ride. I don’t often chuckle and snort at polymer art but Keven makes us laugh as her Santas come to life. Have a happy weekend.
