Polymer Clay Animals

I’m getting married in October and we’re having a harvest/farm/Halloween theme. I’m making my own cake and I wanted little animals and jack-o-lanterns on one of the tiers. I could’ve used marzipan but I wanted to be able to keep them around after the day was over, and I wanted them to be more sturdy, so I made them out of polymer clay.

I used Sculpey III, some clay tools from my intro ceramics class, (it’s always good to keep stuff around) and some interchangeable screwdriver tips.

There’s a rabbit too… I missed him somehow in the pictures. They were really fun to make and they turned out really well. I just need to varnish them up with some gloss acrylic medium and they’ll be ready to go.

So long and thanks for all the fish…

we’re sad that it should come to this.

My entry for a an exhibition about American landscapes. I figure they’re looking for pretty little farm scenes and such but I’m thinking this is more appropriate for what’s happening now.

New Banner

A fresh banner for The Voltage Gate just in time for summer, it’s creatures of the Sahara: Desert Hedgehog, Fennec Fox, Desert Horned Viper, and Long-Eared Jerboa. By the way if any animal looks like a Pokeman… it’s the jerboa.

New Series

I’ve started working on a series of 18 x 24 drawings. They’re kind of a combo of my planetoid drawings and the illustration I made for Jeremy for his article on forest fragmentation.

Here’s pre-color, just ink:

They make me happy. There are about a billion types of bridges, stairs, slides, pipes, and ladders, so the possibilities are endless.
