Polymer Clay Ribbon Candy

More Christmas candy! This might be my favorite candy to have around at Christmas time, not so much for the taste but for the look and shape. It looks happy to me. I think I’m going to make other colors too.

This batch was made from Cernit also, just like the mints and corns. I like using this clay because it does have a translucent look, like a lot of real candy does. I do mix in a bit of white to brighten up the colors, just not too much to lose the candy look.

I used white(porcelain) with a little opaque white mixed in, red and green.

I am so on a roll, I’m going to need more clay! Hey, Howard can you help a girl out here! – T

I Have Corns!

Yes, I do! Lots of POLYMER CLAY CANDY CORNS! Still on my candy kick, I’ve been working with Halloween colors. I need to be ready when the holidays hit. So far, I have itty bitty no hole corns, small corns with holes running across, medium corns with holes across and some vertical, large corns with vertical holes. I should have taken the picture before separating the different kinds, sorry, I am not letting them get mixed up again! I made these using Cernit brand polymer clay, I think it looks the most like the real thing! I bought the clay from Clay Factory Inc. in Escondido.

I used white porcelain, orange and lemon

Whew, that’s a bunch! … or is it a bushel?

I wonder if I have enough to part with on Etsy?  – T

Stars & Stripes Checkers

I finished my checker chips in polymer clay for the red, white and blue penny rug  game board, whew! I was stressing a little about making the stripes all perfectly straight when I noticed the flag waving in the wind across the street. Like everything else I do, I go with the wonky. Only this time it isn’t spooky wonky, it’s waving in the breeze! I am happy with the striped checker pieces, they’re not so stiff and rigid looking.

 I am using Cernit polymer clay for the checkers, I love the gold! I got a bunch of it from The Clay Factory online. They also sell neon, nature colors, metallics and lots of regular colors too. I really like the colors that have little flecks in them like granites and other stones, they’re good for a Wilma Flintstone necklace! The neons are fun for making beads for kids or if you want something with that shock appeal! Why not have fun with your art?! – T
