Maryland’s Kelly Russell crackles, paints, transfers, stamps and leafs and she does it so well that it’s hard to say what the material is. But what you can say it that it’s beautiful and you can bet there’s polymer involved.
It looks like Kelly has abandoned her website and only puts photos on Facebook. She has a huge Pinterest site but none of her own art is there. She makes us work to find her.
You can click on these photos to get larger versions but you’ll have to go to Facebook to see other shots that show their intricacy and dimension. The pendant below has surprising dimension (the polymer cameo is quarter-sized) and a glass bezel.
The colors and the crackle make the pieces look ancient. Kelly has spent the last few years refining her PMC skills and we welcome her back to the polymer neighborhood.
Hi Cynthia….Thanks for putting up my new experiments….the photo of the big bead isn’t the way it ended up…I actually turned it so the heavy end was on the bottom…loved what you said about my surfaces. Thanks again…Kelly
