A bit of Polymer Clay here, a bit of Steampunk there!

Ok I admit it...I love steampunk! I may be a bit too "mature" but I don't I was challenged by my friend Lisa to create a Pirate ship & well...I took it a bit further. Some Premo Sculpey clay & some Mona Lisa Metal powders, a few recycled bits & pieces & a 300 watt shop light bulb...& a bit of imagination later and...

The wings & sails are made from brown paper sack that I coated with Liquid Sculpey(TLS) that was colored with Mica Powders. The propeller actually turns. There are cannons sticking out of the portholes with the doors open. The large portholes on the side where the Captains quarters would be, have resin in them for the glass. Ok the front sail rigging doesn't hang straight but all in all I'm quite proud of this piece! It's all from my "crazy" imagination, so welcome to my world!
Thanks so much for stopping by again...Till Next Time!


  1. It's fabulous! I could really see it being used in a Steampunk short movie, at the very least!

    1. Thank you so much! Wouldn't that be fun!
