Peekaboo polymer

Heidi Helyard's charmingly simple pendant bubbles up on PolymerClayDaily.com

Australia’s Heidi Helyard’s smooth droplets of bright colors poke up through perfect holes in a heavily textured white circle of clay.

A fantastic volcanic eruption? The mischievous imaginings of a happy child bubbling up? A clever girl fooling around?

Heidi’s simple pendant doesn’t rely on her clay skills. It leans on whimsy and spirit and fun.

 

Holiday stress reliever

When you’re simply overwhelmed by holiday and all the hubbub, this little video tutorial from New York’s Cathryn (bluebassoonhandmade) may be just the thing to calm your jangled nerves.

Rolling little balls and then poking them with a dotting tool is the perfect stress reliever. Nothing more satisfying than mindlessly squishing dots.

Make a slab and you have your very own 2021 holiday collection! Cathryn specializes in grungeglam and farmpunk fashions.

Polymer pointillism

Leah Radlett's bubbles create an arresting gaze on PolymerClayDaily.com

This framed 4″ polymer tile from Australia’s Leah Radlett (leaha_radlett) is entitled A Mother’s Prayer. The shades of gray and intense gaze feel solemn and serious.

Leah admits she’s been troubled about mothers and their children in these tough times.¬† Leah rolls balls of color by hand. She calls them her bubble paintings. She recently added a number of new scenes and animals in this style to her Etsy site.

It’s hard to look away from this polymer.
