Layers of polymer ruffles

Victoria Mkhitarian shows us new ways with her ruffles on PolymerClayDaily.com

New Zealand’s Victoria Mkhitarian’s newest framed art makes me want to run my fingers across its many layers of pale polymer, copper and acrylic paint. She calls her series Ruffles and this closeup on Facebook gives you a better understanding of its construction.

Her Flickr photos also give you a good look at her delicate and luminous works.

The layers in her Ruffles1B (right) incorporates the same thin strips of polymer arranged vertically. In this piece, the layers are tinted with alcohol inks and she omits the copper layers.

Victoria frames these delicacies in deep shadow boxes. Yep, I’m gushing over ruffles!

    So interesting how ideas crop up in the polymer world– I was just musing about and sketching a similar idea last week but with a different application. Maybe a new ‘scrap’ technique?

      These layers are so cool! The textures and colors are so appealing!
