black and white fusion project

It is entirely polymer clay except for the tile with the butterfly. That is a brass filigree that I painted black and set in white clay. There are various techniques used in the different tiles including Sutton Slice, stamping and sculpting. It is set into the top of a large keepsake box.

The masked visitor


my racoon, originally uploaded by coltpixy.

After a year and a half of being off of anxiety meds my doctor had to put me back on them this week with a strong warning to avoid stressful situations. I do not like taking them because they make me sleep and unable to function. Especially after being off of them for so long.

This guy lives in the woods behind my house and for the past couple of weeks has come up for a meal every evening. My husband took this video of him last night while I was passed out hoping it would make me smile when I woke up.

Sutton Slice tiles


tiles made with sutton slice technique

I am working on a keepsake box that will be a gift to my mother-in-law. I stained the box in Cherry and the top will be covered in tiles that are made of polymer clay. I am using the Sutton Slice technique. I wanted it to be colorful and have texture.

I really like this technique.
