Yet Another Polymer Clay Adventure

This time the polymer madness started because I had an idea for some book charms... and then I kept going. Some of these things I will put on my Etsy shop. I don't think the last two pictures are going to make it on there. One had copyrighted characters and the other picture has some not-so-original ideas.

This dragon matches the Maroon and Gold one from the last polymer adventures. I wanted to use up the glass stones that I have. It just happened that they're going on a Harry Potter color theme. I think I'll have to continue with it. ;)

Hungry like a Zombie?
I had these little bowls from the last time and didn't know what I was going to do with them then. I wanted to make something kind of gross and weird. I think this fits the bill.

Berry Deadly Lollies
These go along with the other Deadly Lollies. This time they look as though they can be berry flavored.

The Bibliophile's Charm
 I'm a self-proclaimed bibliophile and I like it when I find another. I really like to talk about books that I'm reading or interested in. It's fun to talk to other writers, as well. I figured making a charm to declare so would be perfect.

Book Genre Charms
These are the charms that got me going on this latest polymer endeavor. I drew up some little images that I thought would convey certain genres and stories. I'm open to other ideas.

These are the charms that I'm not going to put on Etsy... well, Jack and Sally for sure. I don't like the idea of making a profit on copyrighted characters. It doesn't seem right to me. But I like to make them as gifts for friends/family. The ice cream and candycane bunch just didn't seem all that original to put up. I even debated putting them up here on the blog, but I figured what the heck?

Ewok Amigurumi

It's my nephew's birthday tomorrow and I was trying to come up with something that I could make for him. My first thought was making him R2-D2, but I realized that I didn't have any gray yarn. Then Yoda came to mind but I wasn't sold. Then for some reason the Ewok from Return of the Jedi stuck in my mind. And thanks to my Crochet Link Blanket I had the right colors of yarn for him. I think the ewoks are hilarious and I'm pretty sure he might think so as well. I mean, he's only turning 5. Things that are silly are funny at 5. I think the next time that I make an ewok I will elongate the body by four rounds. The proportions are a tiny bit off to me right now. Either way, my nephew won't care. ;)

Polymer Clay Goodness

Got some more polymer clay goodness happening here. A dragon, a few Mon-mons, lots of Deadly Lollies, and some snails. All were fun to make. The Deadly Lollies came by accident. The first pair of wings that I was going to use for the dragon were too big so they got mashed and twisted together into some Deadly Lollies.

Awe, don't you love this Mon-Mon's derpy face?

This Mon-Mon should be an award of some kind. He's so shiny!

This is proof that Mon-Mons come in a variety of colors. Sometimes more than two at a time!

It seems that this Mon-Mon found another kind of food to love. Not sure it's the best choice for the mischievous Mon-Mons. Who knows what sugar will do to them.

Larger Deadly Lollies.

Rainbow and Tootie-Fruitie.

An Oldie and Some New

First, I'll start with an older craft. This is an amigurumi that I made for my newest nephew. I made this back in February but with the move and all this was the only good picture that I got of it. I'm not sure why I decided on a wolf. All I remember is that I like the color combination and the sparkles in the green yarn. I figured it would make a good plush for him.

Here are some polymer clay rings and a charm. I just finished glazing these yesterday. I've always wanted to make some polymer rings but I didn't have the right ring backs. I eventually found them at a Hobby Lobby in  WA and now had a chance to do something with them here in TX. These are the designs that I thought would be fun. And the little charm will be fun to wear on a necklace or something. I thought that Paperman was a cutest short when I first saw it. I figured it would be an awesome charm.

And finally, here is another Mon-Mon. This time he's blue/pink and love brains just as much as the other Mon-Mons. Although this time it seems he may have gotten a little hungry before he could be photographed.
