Polymer hats

Blackford, Terlizzi and Friesen on PCDaily

Pink polymer everywhere! Artists hopped on the craze for this symbol of women’s marches around the globe.

These brooches were made by Leslie Blackford (Instagram), Melissa Terlizzi (Flickr), and Christi Friesen (Instagram).

I can vouch for the vibe at the Washington, DC site which was very friendly and upbeat (more in StudioMojo which will come out Tuesday). Many polymer artists joined in marches and cleverly added their wearable reminders that women are united and strong.

Does this inspire you to make your own version?

Marching as one in polymer

Rachelle from our polymer classes at the Ohio Reformatory for Women made the We March Together pins for Jackie Burns and me.

Faces were the subject of last month’s class and Rachelle has been making face canes ever since. Mine is has orange/blonde streaked hair and Jackie’s hair is white.

Their brooches certainly remind us that we march together in support of all women’s issues.

Then Pennsylvania’s Andrew Thornton put a pink hat on his baby dragon to show his support for the marchers. He explains the details of his process on his blog. Off to march with a wild cast of characters.

Polycolored polymer

Nikolina Otrzan’s Polygonal Color brooches will wake up your Monday. Imagine lining up those angles and colors!  The stripes bring another level of complexity while almost imperceptible dots of color add grace notes.

Nikolina takes her geometry in other directions as well. See what she’s up to on Flickr, Pinterest and Facebook. Surely she’ll teach her clever technique on CraftArtEdu soon.

Color cravings

Ford/Forlano on PCDaily

Do you have color cravings? My mouth watered and my stomach said, “Yum, let’s eat that!” when I saw these polymer and silver donuts from Ford & Forlano’s booth at the Baltimore ACC show. (More new work here.)

They’re not edible but those reds look mighty juicy and my system gets confused when bombarded by beauty. The earrings’ blues vibrated and hummed happily too.

If you’d like a calorie-free color snack, go sample the goodies on Dave and Steve’s site and Facebook page.
