Inchies: Work in Progress

Our Guild's January challenge is to submit 4 pcs. Inchies expressing ourselves. Inchies are 1" x 1" works of art which can be made from paper, polymer clay, fabric, etc. For some countries, these served as a "Calling card" for their works, so people can take a sneak peek to their talented world.

I really haven't decided on what to do but I made some caned leaves and petals which I planned to incorporate to my design.

Caned Leaves (fresh batch!)

I'll keep you updated when this progresses.

Happy Claying!

Alcohol Inks!

I am so addicted to alcohol inks with polymer clay. I'm forever experimenting and trying different techniques with it and so far I still have a long way to go in mastering this medium. Let me share with you some of my experiments:

1. Alcohol ink on polymer clay with black and white image transfer:

2. Alcohol Inks in polymer clay with 2 kinds of photo-transfer techniques:

3. Alcohol Ink with TLS and metallic foil on polymer clay

4. Alcohol ink in polymer clay with "masking" technique - Batik-style (Technique by Heather Campbell): I really enjoyed doing this :)

I may have to challenge myself to do something using technique no. 4. I'll keep you posted :)

Happy 2012!

Finally, after so many weeks, I cleaned and organized my work space! 

BEFORE: Messy and cluttered!
AFTER: Clean and Organized :)

I can't wait to use my workspace now!

Stay tuned for more clay creations in the coming days. :)
