50 Days of shimmering veneers

Leanne Fergus puts a glitzy touch on day 50 of her 100 veneers project on PolymerClayDaily

Melbourne’s Leanne Fergus loves mixed media on polymer clay. Pearly, shiny, glowing, golden…anything that shimmers is right up her alley. Texture adds another level of interest and intrigue.

Leanne is up to day 50 on her 100-day project and it’s paying off. Some veneers she captures under resin.

Flip through her Instagram to see how she’s progressed. “When I’m in my workroom creating I feel like everything including time, stands still. It is my therapy, meditation and happy place.  It is a time for being fully in the moment and recharging my spirit,” says Leanne.

Her new website is stunning.

Polymer surfaces

Karen Woods pushes gilds her inks on raw polymer on PolymerClayDaily

PCD will be on travel schedule this week since I’m catching up on the latest twists in polymer at the Virginia conference. I can’t sit still long enough to write so posts will appear from time to time.

Surface decoration is still all the rage and just when you thought you’d seen it all, Karen Woods demos some alcohol tricks (click at left) on unbaked clay or Anita Kennerly and Joey Barnes show off new pigment powders they found.

Leftover polymer

The patterns were leftovers from a class taught by Hélène Jeanclaude and sponsored by Cernit. Here are Maryvonne’s blog, and Facebook,

Be warned that following the links will send you down a rabbit hole into a world of glowing translucent patterns (Cernit’s specialty) tucked among surfaces screened, painted and punched with French flair.
