Nancy Nearing brings veneers to life with dimension on PolymerClayDaily.com

and sculpts the flat collages, she takes them to a whole different place.

Nancy’s a neighbor so I caught this project mid-process. They’re not even on her Instagram yet! We will revisit them when she adds more flowery details and mounts them in shadow boxes.

Your brain on polymer

Polymer builds brains according to Marina Sabio on PolymerClayDaily.com

The brains that Bordeaux’ Marina Sabio (TinySparks) sculpts in polymer appeal. I find myself trying to think up clever words to justify why her art tickles me.

No reason, no words. Sometimes we just like what we like. Maybe it’s because my extrusions often end up a ball looking suspiciously like one of these without the personality. She offers her brains in bloody and galactic.

If you need to give yourself a smile, explore further on her site, Etsy and IG.
