Mickey Pumpkin Centerpiece

September 14, 2010 at 12:50 am (Disney, Holidays, Poylmer Clay)

Like it or not, fall is coming. Although I refuse to give up the flip flops and I mourn the day the pool has to get closed, I guess I have to succomb to the fact that fall is on its way.

I made myself feel a little better about it by making this fall-themed (and Disney-themed) table centerpiece!

The Mickey Pumpkins themselves are made of Sculpey clay. I balled up some foil, ran the clay through my pasta machine and covered the balls with three layers of clay. While they were baking away in the oven (pumpkin pie anyone?) I assembled the rest of the pieces for the project—a piece of wood for the base, small fall flowers, moss, and my trusty hot glue gun.

A bit of arranging later (and a few third degree burns from said trusty hot glue gun) I had my masterpiece! I love how the fact that the thin layers of clay “rippled” over the surface of the foil made it really look like a lumpy, imperfect pumpkin!

Can’t wait to display it!

It took me the better part of the day to create, but I’m so proud of it!

Clay Disney Pendants

July 1, 2010 at 5:22 pm (Disney, General Crafting, Poylmer Clay)

July 1st. Less than a week into summer vacation. Less than a month until I go to Disney!

I came up with these Sculpey clay pendants. The first is an imprint made with a vintage Epcot silver spoon. After I baked it, I brushed it lightly with a watered down craft paint.

The next two are made by using very thin pieces of clay punched out with my paper puncher

Sushi!

December 13, 2007 at 9:01 pm (Poylmer Clay)

mmmm—I was clearly craving sushi yesterday.
I made a Sculpey cane of sushi and cut it into 3/8″ slices. Most of them were pierced so they could be strung, and a few I put onto a plate to turn into a magnet. I plan on turning the rest into stitch markers for crochet projects.
