Voyage Beneath the Waves! Trinket Box by LynzCraftz

Hi everyone, it's Lyn here again from LynzCraftz...join me this week beneath the waves with this super fun project. Voyage Beneath the Waves trinket box started out as an old aquarium embellishment that had ceased to function.


 I molded it with Amazing Mold Putty & then poured it with Amazing Casting Resin & let that cure. After de-molding it I then painted it with Acrylic Paints.

It turned out nice I think! Anyway...I then took a small wooden hinged box(from the craft store) which I had painted blue & added some stenciling with texture paste in the form of bubbles.
The box then got a few layers of acrylic paint in some underwater colors, Super Sculpey Seaweed, some pearls & rhinestones & sand mixed with Matte Medium finished off the box.




What an underwater scene! Makes a great little jewelry box or gift box for something special! Amazing Mold Putty is so easy to use, mold almost anything you can think of! Then use some Amazing casting resin to make something fun to use in your next project!

                                                          What will you mold next?

Well that's it for this week...Till Next Time!  And as usual you can find my work on my blog LynzCraftz , on YouTube LynzCraftz , as well as FaceBook LynzCraftz .

DIY Polymer Clay Mermaid Bowl tutorial





Hi everyone Lyn here again, this time with a Mermaid bowl! Super fun & easy to do with a simple pattern I designed for sharing with all of you! The face is from the Sculpey face mold with I resculpted slightly, the rest are just easy flap pieces with a little detail added such as scales, jewelry & shell bra...lol. I used mica powders to give here a bit of shimmer & sealer her with a water based sealer.
 So fun! Download the pattern & give it a try yourself!

I also created a YouTube video to show you how I created this beautiful Mermaid Bowl...


The pattern is my gift to you, feel free to use it as you like. Even to make money from your creations using the pattern. All I ask is that you don't sell the pattern or post it as your own. That's it, simple right?
Well that's all for now...Till Next Time

DIY Polymer Clay Fish Dish/Ring Dish

 Hi everyone, Lyn here again for a fun little ring dish tutorial. I also created a YouTube video tutorial to go along with these little fishes!
These were just created with Premo White clay & a Corelle Ware bowl. I simply cut out a fish shape, added some details, layed it in the bowl & then baked it. The mica powders where then added to the sealer & painted on. Super fun & easy!

Large Mouth Bass
Colorful Sun Perch
I'll even give you a pattern so you can create your own little fish dishes/ring dishes. They would also make great soap dishes if created out of colored clay!


The pattern is my gift to you, feel free to use it as you like. Even to make money from your creations using the pattern. All I ask is that you don't sell the pattern or post it as your own. That's it, simple right?

Here's the link for the YT video...

Enjoy everyone & Till Next Time!

DIY Bronze Patina Swellegant on Polymer Clay

The before on this piece was inspired by the Art Nouveau Master Craftsman Rene' Lalique & although my own take on the piece I think it does justice to his gorgeous work.
Created from a custom blend of gold & bronze Premo clays, one of my clay faces & the lovely pyramid shaped bead I was gifted by a dear friend it still needed the final touch to bring it to life.
So in comes the Swellegant...I chose the bronze since that was my original plan, with the Darkening Patina. It really didn't have too much of a reaction so I continued on with the Sky Sapphire & that did the trick!
                                            It's really quite a lovely finish...don't ya think?
You can still see some of the Darkening Patina & the Sky Sapphire really pops. I gave her face just a bit of blue acrylic paint in the details to match the patina & she's gorgeous!
I truly love what Swellegant can bring to my work. To see a pendant you've put so much work into suddenly age right before your eyes is quite mesmerizing! I really do enjoy the process to say the least.
Well although we're at the end of May, I do have a few more of these Surface Effects pendant to share with you so stay tuned...Till Next Time!

DIY Polymer Clay & Alcohol Inks

Hi everyone, Lyn here again & once again the before image is a little bland but this time I'm using Alcohol Inks on Polymer Clay.
This time I've used the Silver Mixative on the hair & leaves & the Bright Purple from Ranger on the grapes plus I added a little of the purple watered down with Alcohol to highlight the hair.. The face I used Pearl Mixative on. I then went back & added a little Lettuce Green t o the leaves just to give it some contrast. A bit of Iridescent Violet Pearl-ex on the grapes gives it the final look.


Pretty, don't you think? I do...lol. Well that's about it for today, sorry I'm not sure how these posts got out of order but you know?! Well...Till Next Time!
