Mix and match tree decorations

Erika Bregani decorates her trees on PolymerClayDaily.com

These bright, cheery trees are from Italy’s Erika Bregani (Centodiecigrad).

Their sharp-edged shapes are covered with happily collaged patterns. Because Erika consistently uses bright colors and strong contrasts in her canes, even the smallest bits play nicely with each other and make sense.

She mixes and matches her earring pairs, putting a tree on one and an ornament on the other.

Tomorrow’s StudioMojo takes a look at some of polymer’s current cutting edge artists who are reflecting current cultural thoughts in their work. Join us for a look at what our work says about us.

Christmas in a cup

Sparkling polymer with your Christmas coffee on PolymerClayDaily.com

Merry Christmas! These Christmas trees from Ludmila Eveeva sparkle with jewels.

They are decorated with rhinestones, Swarovski pearls, and pendants. She tops them with ribbons and stars. Ludmila is an instructor with the Deco Craft Academy in Russia.

Enjoy a touch of elegance with your Christmas coffee and see the rest of her bejeweled polymer decorations on Instagram.

Lighthearted horror

Nicole Johnson approaches the season with horror on PolymerClayDaily.com

New York’s Nicole Johnson takes a lighthearted approach to horror.

These grimacing big-eyed Christmas trees remind us that there are only eight days until Christmas. And at some point in the last minute frenzy, horror becomes a sensible way to cope.

We made Christmas trees at a young friend’s birthday party this weekend and It would seem that several of the young artists share Nicole’s vision. Their spontaneity tickles me.

See all Nicole’s quirky antics on Facebook and Instagram. 

A tutorial under your tree

Lehocky on PCDaily

Dr. Ron Lehocky apologized for being late in sending PCD readers this free holiday tree tutorial. He explains that he’s been busy making over 1100 heart trees since November. He’s turned his signature heart upside down and added some bling in keeping with the season.

Ron offers the tutorial as a thank you gift to the polymer community who have so wholeheartedly supported the heart project and the Fimo 50 effort which both benefit the Kids Center. He’s also celebrating having made 33,150 hearts. (Can you imagine?)

Ron extruded so much green polymer that he tired of the color and created a blue Frozen series of trees. They sold out quickly. Unwrap your present from Ron at this link. Follow him on Facebook where you can see his fans decked out fashionably in hearts.
