Hello dear friends,
Today I’m not sharing a tutorial, but variations of ideas that I explained in another tutorial. I’m doing this to show you in how many ways you can express one idea (with variations) and also to show you polymer clay pieces that I am very proud of.
In fact I made this Art Nouveau inspired piece with the intent to make a pendant… But in the end it was a little too big for a pendant (even for a statement piece), so I let it aside. And today I realized, hey, I can put it in my Christmas tree. And this is how the idea of using it as a Christmas decoration came to my mind.
The next thing I made was an Art Nouveau inspired pendant (using the same techniques: Oyumaru mold for the face, that I modified a lot – I added the hair and the flowers -; I used butterfly cutters to make the wings and an Art Nouveau motif for the central part ; After baking, I applied Pebeo Paints).
This is the piece that I made as a pendant and you can see the tutorial here: https://michellemaya2005.wordpress.com/2015/04/26/one-tutorial-a-day-for-31-days-day-21-of-my-journey-inspired-by-art-nouveau/
And I have also a necklace (which is one of my favorite polymer clay pieces – and I am very critical about my work) that I want to show you. The same ideas apply here (Art Nouveau inspired shapes, Oyumary mold, Pebeo paints on top).
The funny thing is that I used the same statue to make the mold (I used it also to make the bride and bridegroom https://michellemaya2005.wordpress.com/2015/08/23/never-say-never/ and the face of the Steampunk statuette https://michellemaya2005.wordpress.com/2015/08/29/a-steampunk-ballerina/). So, you see, using the Oyumaru mold is just a starting point.
Thank you for reading my blog posts! I wish you Happy Holidays!
My best to you!
