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 Clay/Clay Week

 

This week we are moving on to Polymer Clay or Clay crafts.

I am not even sure how I ended up deciding to “play” with clay.  I would hazard a guess it was all the cool projects I saw on Pinterest.  What was the harm in trying just one, right?  Only that it didn’t end up being just one.  I am pretty sure that last Christmas everyone received something made of polymer clay lol!

Below I will attach pictures of some of the things I made for Kim last Christmas

Clay Wool Bowl – Attempt #1

20170421_112215

I have been seeing Clay bowls to hold our wool while you are knitting or crocheting everywhere lately.  I, of course, decided it was time for me to try it. I have become fairly competent when it comes to playing with polymer clay (I’ll have to do that in a post too one day and add the pictures of the stuff I’ve made so far), and had a lot of “scraps” of it in my Clay bin.  Lightbulb going off in my head (yes, it does happen on occasion) telling me that would be the perfect opportunity to test out one of these bowls!

Below is my first attempt at making one of these bowls.  While it didn’t turn out perfect like all the other ones I have seen, it is useable and gave me some knowledge to use when I try my next one!
