Colorado’s Diane Kremer packages up fall in a simple pair of earrings. Subtly textured shades of orange/red/gold circles stack like a pile of leaves.
The wire that ties it all together is featured front and center. Why not?
This week’s StudioMojo wraps up my last event as I head out for another one. We’ve been cooped up too long! All that pent-up energy has to be unleashed! Come on over and see what’s new and where it’s coming from.
Maintaining the shape of extruded polymer clay flower canes as you reduce them is nearly impossible. At a recent gathering, Minnesota’s Jenny Patterson reminded me of a clever workaround.
She extrudes her canes and slices them after they’re cured!
Jenny sells at big shows (she’ll be at the Balloon show in Albuquerque) so her production skills are well honed.
She cuts the cured extrusions once they’re cool or slightly re-warms them to make them pliable depending on the brand of clay. Try it both ways to see what your clay prefers. She punches a hole in each thin slice with hole punch pliers.
