Blue keepsake box

This week I made this box for my husband. His favorite color is blue. The top is polymer clay. The feather has 3 shades of pearl ex powder and one clear glass glob that I painted the underside of with acrylic paints. It was a fun project. Sort of like doodling but with strands and dots of clay instead of a pen.

The butterfly catcher

Pick a hobby they said. It will be fun they said. He chose butterfly collecting and yet he cannot seem to catch any in his net.
There are no paints used here, the flowers are sculpted on with colored clays. Everything seen with the exception of the shell was handmade by me. I use resin to make the eyeballs, artist quality clays to sculpt the snail. The butterfly net is brass tubing and wire. The butterflies are dollhouse scale. I made dozens of them a few months ago to go with dollhouse scale plants I became addicted to making.

Ulitka

улитка (ulitka) is Russian for snail. Ulitka is very loosely based on matryoshka dolls so the name seemed appropriate.

The Fortune Teller

Deep in the forest of ColtPixy lives a lady who can see all. If you ask her questions she may give you a riddle or a hint. That is, if she believes you need to know the answer. More likely than not she will tell you that you have asked the wrong question. This is because she thinks people should learn from experiences and not try to avoid them.
