Polymeri Online 4.10.15 | Bringing animation to life, Sweet cutlery, Singing fish to scare your nightmares, Clay cabochons & Geometric jewellery

After a short-long break I am back with new posts and inspiration.
I truly hope to keep up the weekly posts and share my finds with you.

As you probably know Instagram is a treasure to many artists including polymer clay.

Ana Rubio is one of my Instagram finds. a spanish artist from Madrid, a graphic designer.
The idea of being able to give life to her illustrations led to animation and the world of 3D design, creating prototypes in clay.
She creates mini series & framed pictures with known animation characters that are a fun reminder to our childhood.

Russian Valerie Maslova (Bantik) has the cutest cutlery sets. Each one not only looks tasty but also makes you want her entire collection of miniature food in your utensil drawer. Cakes, cupcakes, waffles, donuts, macaroons and even animals and minions. Outstanding perfection!

Les Ptit Mobiles (Estelle Marchal) is making mobiles that scare nightmares away. They all have big eyes glowing in the dark. In one of my journeys I found her singing fish. She says their voice is terrible but that's what scares the nightmares away! They are so cute and full of expression you can almost hear their thoughts :)

Sara Spoltore (Sarubbest) is a polymer clay artist which took polymer cabochon making into a profession. She uses polymer clay as a frame wrapping around any cabochon she desires - it can be glass, natural stones, rhinestones - everything can be surrounded with metallic looking clay to mimic a metal bezel.

Jayne Flanagen is also in Instagram. She is a jewellery artist based in Sydney Australia, working in multiple mediums, combining materials and techniques.
Her geometric designs are very appealing and will suit any dress code you wear. Very elegant and clean, lot's of black and white shades.

Let's meet again next week!

2 FREE Micro Macrame video tutorials - When Polymer clay and alcohol inks meet cords and knots

Polymer clay adapts into it so many mix media techniques - glass, mosaic, crochet - everything can be decorated with polymer clay beads...
So why not Micro Macrame knotting?

Micro Macrame may look complicated at first sight but it is in fact a very simple handcraft dated hundreds of years ago, used all over the world with thin / thick cords.

You can find macrame knotting in home accessories, jewellery, fashion and many more.

Once you master 3-4 basic knots you can create your own patterns and design and combine them with your own custom made polymer clay beads.

No need for special tools or materials! Only cords and beads!

Here is a free sneak peek to 2 free tutorials creating polymer clay earrings combined with metal findings and knotting.

If you do not have metal finding with holes you can create your own using polymer clay and small cutters, tooth picks or drilling after baking.

Have fun!

Polymeri Online 28.5.15 | Back from USA Orlando Fandango 2015 ~ Journey Photo Album ✈, Christina's children's book figurines, 2 ways to build a polymer clay house, Free polymer clay bugs tutorial

I always say that you need a vacation after a vacation, running from one place to the other, visiting, touring, traveling - it's exhausting! ;)

Returning from my long US trip (vacation and polymer clay retreating) is not easy but I'm here to share some links I gathered over the past month.

First, my Orlando Fandango 2015 retreat photo album - I had the honour of being one of 3 instructors in this year Orlando Fandango 2015 – A polymer clay retreat hosted in Lake Yale, Leesburg, Florida, along with 2 colleague teachers (Lindly Hunani and Eugena Topina) and ~60 students.
My Alcohol inks "INKredible" class was chosen by last year 2014 Fandango participants as one of the 3 classes to be taught on 2015.
The classes and trip were wonderful in all aspects - people, organisational, personal.

As a final surprise I got spotted by Cynthia Tinnaple and featured on Polymer Clay Daily.
You are welcome to see photos & read more about it in my site post -


Christina Patterson's children's books
Christina Patterson, also mentioned here in last year post was spotted in her Instagram gallery.
Back then I saw her & partner's cake toppers work, but now their cute beautiful creations are also in children's books.

You are welcome to visit their Facebook page here -
and website -

Jill's framed house
Jill Curran can get you a new home in a great price! A home in polymer clay! BUT! her creations represents memories... A place where a very special wedding, celebration, or christening took place, she sculpt them to fit a framed portrait, or a shallow relief house ornament. She starts from photographs and make a one of a kind customised replica of any building. 
A cherished personalised gift.

Avaritania's 3D polymer clay houses
Another "Home-builder" creating houses, this time in 3D - Avaritania
According to her post she is quite new in the live journal group page but judging from her work she has a touch of clay in her fingertips. 
If I understood correctly, she used to build them on thin paper as her base but when her walls kept "collapsing" she moved to a thicker cardboard and now she uses templates.

Polymer clay bugs tutorial
Last one for the day is another live journal catch - a polymer clay bug class by Aleksanta.
Now that the summer is getting near and bugs are around us, you can create some of your own and place them on a shirt, bag or even as a "scarecrow" to frighten other bugs!

Enjoy your upcoming weekend!
