Polymer Transfer Technique Put to Good Use!
I learned about this super easy transfer technique for polymer and laser printed pictures a while back, but never applied the knowledge till now. I ship all of my mini characters in an organza bag (example pictured below). I wanted a unique and original tag for the bags that had my Etsy shop name on them. I wanted to make polymer tags as polymer clay is my medium of choice but I wanted something...
Loss of a little friend
My parents lost their faithful little companion of 16 years yesterday. He was the sweetest little dog. 16 years is a long time and with his heart condition we all knew the time for him the leave the world was coming, although one can never be prepared. My parents are so sad, I am sad for them. I couldn’t stop thinking about little Corky and my parents last night. I pulled out the polymer...
Don't Blink!! The Weeping Angels are back!
I finished my Weeping Angels today and have put one up at my Etsy shop to share with other Whovians! 100% Handmade using polymer clay. These angels were created with a hand mixed grey polymer clay and a tad bit of silver sparkle clay to get a more stone like appearance. I think I am going to make some more Ood tonight because I could never have enough! I love the Ood!- also in my Etsy Shop
Premo Sclupey Accents is nice but....
I was working on some new Weeping Angels last night (there curing now in the oven). I decided to change up the color blend a little. I added about 1/4 of a pack of Silver Premo Accent to my grey blend to give my finished project a little sparkle. My mix turned super goopy, sticky, and just not pleasant to work with. The warmer the clay became the stickier it felt to me. While the finished project...
So, I’m working on a polymer piece tonight and the whole time I just wasn’t feeling it. The clay wasn’t coming together, the colors were off, it was just a big mess. I decided to push through and keep going determined I would concur whatever bad vibe that was starting to take over my piece. Well wouldn’t you know as soon as I finished my piece and placed it in the oven to...
Happy Birthday Doctor Seuss
Doctor Seuss’ birthday is March 2nd. In honor of one of my beloved memories from childhood I created this Green Eggs & Ham charm to celebrate the day. For those that follow my posts, yes they are mostly about Doctor Who, but this Doctor is high on my list as well! So Happy Birthday Doctor Seuss! I will be wearing my charm proudly on the 2nd of March! I have posted these at my Etsy...
Polymer Doctor Who - Completed
I have made a few of the 10th Doctor miniatures in polymer clay. This is my first using my Deni Convection Oven & my polymer skin tone blend together. I wasn’t happy with the skin tone I was getting using Premo Sculpey or Super Sculpey at all. Premo Sculpey beige was too dark, but loved the consistency of the clay, and the ease of conditioning it. It also baked really nice, but too...
Polymer Clay Baking - Update
I have been baking my polymer clay pieces with my Deni for a about a week and I love it! I have found the perfect temp setting and…. drum roll please… not one burnt or suntanned face in the bunch! In the past with my toaster oven I would burn the occasional piece thanks to the awful temperature consistency, or sometimes my mini characters little faces, ears and hands would have a nice...
Polymer Clay & Doctor Who = happiness
I have been working away at creating Doctor Who miniatures for a bit now. My goal is to have every companion, time lord, and alien I can! Still loving the fact that creating these little cuties is not a chore for me at all, I generally think about working on them all day! When work and home finally give me a break I head right to my polymer work station and get crafting. I do not have a set plan...
Inspiration! Fired Up!
Create what you love and the inspiration just flows! I bogged myself down with the thoughts that I had to create something gorgeous, artistic, original, something uniquely me. It was way too much pressure! The moment I let go of those thoughts and just reminded myself to have fun with my craft I was off and running, or sculpting as the case may be. Why was I putting myself under such strain?...
Hello Rory Williams!
I have been so jazzed about working with polymer clay, now that I create what I love - Doctor Who inspired mini’s of course. It doesn’t hurt that the little characters I create are a huge hit it my house either. I love showing off my little creations, in fact half the time my little guys are still hot from the oven when I squeal “Hey, come and check this out!” Yes, my...

I just love the Ood, who doesn’t? Really!? A gentle, telepathic alien race that in my opinion should be seen more in future episodes of Doctor Who. As I love the Ood so much, they were one of my first polymer miniature creations.
My New Find!
It’s been awhile since my last blog post, mostly because the real world decided to encroach on my “ME” time! Well wouldn’t you know as soon as I start getting into my polymer crafting groove real life strikes, typical. Without getting into specifics, or boring you; I have a pretty demanding day job. I don’t have the typical 9 to 5. If I have still have projects to...
