Combining Mediums & Thinking about the New Year

I've been doing quite a bit of my work lately combining Resin & Polymer Clay. After some trial & error I've really come to enjoy this process. It slows me down considerably & that's a good thing. It actually gives me time to work on more projects at one time, which is the way I prefer to work. For this post I only have a few projects to share...
First is the lovely milky white face with a resin geode that I molded from an Amethyst geode piece from my collection. It has iridescent faux snowflakes for some sparkle in the resin. Her earrings & crown are Amethyst nuggets.
Next is my Favorite...because of the beach/ocean theme of it. The sea turtle is resin with some gold metal flakes & she has a crown of turquoise. 
 This pendant has the Swellegant Sapphire Sky Patina on the brass metal coating & the same geode mold resin piece with iridescent flakes. Her face is framed by 2 feathers in silver metal coating with the darkening patina. I always enjoy working with the Swellegant line...awesome product!
 On this final pendant I tried something a little different, a bit of a softer look. This one is all polymer clay but still just as beautiful. The roses are from a mold & the finish is Swellegant Silver metal coating with darkening patine & several of the dye oxide colors. She has a Garnet crown & a beautiful CZ in her rose bouquet.
These are more of the type of project I want to bring for the new year. Along with some more mixed media, Altered boxes & bottles, maybe even some art journaling! Thank you so much for spending time with me today during this busy time of year & join me tomorrow for a DT project for Amazing Casting Products...Till Next Time!

  1. Beautiful as always. I am going to try resin some day, but I want to get more comfortable with polymer clay first. I love working with it and it doesn't matter if I have to leave it for an hour or days.

    1. Thanks Niki,I waited a long time before I tried 2 pt resin for the first time. My first experience years ago was horrible, the smell of the resin was really bad. Now days they've worked that out...lol. I still have trouble with waiting for it to cure...lol...I'm not very patient.

    1. On the beach themed one I used black clay, which is also what I used for the pendants with the Swellegant on them as well. Thanks Hon!
