Ranger Inks

These inks were all the rage at the last conference I went to. I should have paid more attention but I try very hard not to get thrown off course by the lastest sparkle and flash. The word is that Hobby Lobby carries these Ranger Inks.

I can’t tell you much about these Adirondack Alcohol Inks other than that they gave the clay a watercolor/metallic effect that was quite pleasant. You should have seen the user’s hands though…completely and permanently dyed. Rubber gloves are highly recommended.

Here’s a bead made by Donna Kato using the inks.

Online Inspirations

It’s been a pleasure to discover gems like those on Kathleen Dustin’s site as I begin to build a list of links to polymer artists. What treasures you’ll find online.

If you’re in need of inspiration, revisit the artists’ sites on the “links” page in the green bar at the top of this page.

Skinner Art


Who better than Judith Skinner, mother of the Skinner Blend, to design this great necklace whose color gradually grows darker? She donated the item to the Pingree silent auction. Judith has a new website you might want to visit.

This triangle of Skinner blend folded over onto itself to form a bead is a pretty clever twist on her theme as well.

Pingree Convergence

It may be messy for a few days yet.

In the meanwhile, Pingree folks can take a sneak peak at the pictures from the recent Rocky Mountain Polymer Clay Network conference by clicking in the green bar above.

Later this week I’ll begin adding daily postings and pictures. Right now I’m changing colors and links and categories…occasionally, botching the whole shebang. Bear with me.

Leslie Blackford’s flying pig sort of exemplifies this site at the moment!
