My New Pottery Clay OOAK Art Dolls

Here is a picture of a few art dolls (left doll is still drying and then will be painted) I created out of pottery clay.

This clay is like real pottery clay but does NOT need to be fired! Yes, that right......air dry clay. You get the pretty much the same effect. So, if you love the look of pottery clay but don't have a kiln to fire your peices -- go and get yourself some of this stuff. I purchased it at Hobby Lobby. If you don't have a Hobby Lobby near you....I would think Micheals would carry it too!

I would love to hear your comments on my creations so, please don't be shy!! It inspires me so much and could really use some right now:-) xoox Gypsie

My Little Monkey Creation

Here is a monkey that I recently created out of pottery clay. His creation was sculpted without the use of molds, with pottery clay. He was painted with acrylic paints. It's been several years since I worked with pottery clay. I found it quite difficult as I am used to working with polymers clay. I will get used to working with it!! I always enjoy a challenge when it comes to creating art! Thanks for visiting! xoox Gypsie

My New Art Supplies And A Few Of My New Creations

Last week I went to Hobby Lobby (My FAVORITE place ever) and got some new art supplies.

This is epoxy, which is used to make pendants. I got a mold and mold release. Soon I will be designing new pendants for my jewerly.

I love pottery clay but don't have a kiln at this time. I found some potty clay that doesn't need to be fired -- YAY!!!! Was very happy to find this:-) Below is a picture of the clay I used to make this monkey. I made him out of the pottery clay, than painted him with acrylic paints. Soon, I will be adding a sealer to seal him.

The sculpt in this picture, is something I am working at this time. I will share a blog as soon I am finished with her creation. I used the pottery clay and then painted her. I am new to the porcelain clay.....bought a couple packs to try it out. I plan to make pendants out of this clay. The paper clay is what I use to make my vintage snowmen. So, I had to get more of this -- Love this stuff!!

Some cool looking scrap booking paper I picked up in town, from "The Secret Window". It is a now scrap booking shop and had to visit it yesterday.

Thanks for visiting my blog page! Peace, xoox Gypsie
