Boehmer on PCDaily

Germany’s Margit Boehmer shows how she reused a candy tray with shallow indentations to hold her palette of pastels.

She shaves hard sticks of color into a powder that falls into the tray’s dimples. If you look closely you’ll see that she uses cotton swabs to apply powdered pastels to polymer.

Margit draws on and carves and distresses the pieces to give them more character. Lately she’s been aging her rainbow colors by adding crackle surfaces and washes of paint as a finishing touch.

See her complex textures on Flickr and Etsy and Facebook.

      Yes, I agree! She is an artist with a unique voice, innovative, and lively.

        I have enjoyed her work as well. I am also thankful that you showed how she uses the candy tray for the pastel storage! I have been having some fun with chalks and polymer but have a mess every time I use them. Thanks for the great tip!

          Margit’s work is so sensual–now pardon me while I go hunt for my pastels!
