Polymer Clay Mug # 4 – Dragon Eye

Here is my final Polymer Clay mug, the fourth of the mini series of mugs I was making for birthday gifts for family.

I was originally going to put some sort of bicycle on this one or something to do with cycling but when I mentioned it to Chris he said, “Dillon isn’t going to want a mug with a bicycle on it,” lol.  I still can’t figure out why not but I went in a completely different direction.

I have seen so many really cool dragons and dragon eyes done in polymer clay and they didn’t seem all that difficult to do so I winged it and made a dragon eye with scales and horns and all that fun stuff on a mug for Dillon.

While I doubt he will actually use this as a mug… for fear of getting a horn up the nose if nothing else lol… it was still fun to make!

Polymer Mugs – #3 – Nintendo Controller

I FINALLY finished the 4 Polymer Mugs I was making for birthdays on Wednesday!!!!!  I have posted the first two I made, Polymer Mug #1 and Polymer Mug #2 previously, so now it’s time for the last two. I still need to put a light coat of varethane on them but at least the part that takes the time is completed!

I decided to do a mock Nintendo controller on the mug for my son-in-law because he is a game/comic nerd lol…. hence the Baby “Geek” Dress I posted that I made for my granddaughter!  This mug was fairly easy to do.  The hardest part was trying to keep the edges straight for me.

I still don’t know if they are dishwasher safe because I haven’t actually gifted any of them yet, but I would guess not.  On most of them there are pieces that could fall off so I think I would just hand wash them!

Polymer Clay on Mugs #2 – Cat Mug

Here is the second of the polymer clay mug I am in the middle of making for family Birthday gifts.  This one didn’t turn out “quite” as I had planned but it still looks like a whole herd of cats and that works for the recipient lol!

Polymer Clay on Mugs #1- Minnie Mouse

Almost all of the birthdays in our family come in February and March, which means after a few weeks of recuperating from Christmas I need to get back in the game figuring out what I want to make everyone for their birthdays!

I saw a whole bunch of mugs embellished with polymer clay on Pinterest and first wondered if the polymer clay would stick once cooked onto the mug and two what I could add to the mugs for each person.

This is the first of the 3 or 4 mugs I am making for birthday gifts.  I got all my mugs at the dollar store and already have a stash of polymer clay, so this gifts requires nothing else from me other than creativity!

Note: I am still deciding if they need a coat of varethane to give them a bit of shine or not lol!

Bird Nest Ornament (Old German Tradition)

I wanted to make a special ornament for my mother-in-law because she has been under a lot of stress lately… just a little pick me up.  I scoured Pinterest for some old German traditions, something she might remember from her childhood, and came across the tradition of placing a bird’s nest in the Christmas tree and ran with that!

Creepy Looking “Colossus”

Let me start by saying that yes, I do know how ugly that is lol!

Dillon watches a TV show called Attack on Titan.  Colossus is apparently one of the characters.  In true fashion, when I asked him what he would like for Christmas he picked something that was going to put me through my paces lol.

He wanted, more or less, what he referred to of a giant wooden book mark in the shape of this Colossus’ head to put in the centre of his collection of books with the same title. Apparently the Colossus in the show is always looking down on everyone else and he thought it would be fitting!
