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? There are no rules with crafting, which I believe is the one and only rule.
I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan.. Don’t know what Doctor Who is? Well, it’s just about the best show on television. It’s got it all! Time travel, aliens, comedy, suspense, drama! Check it out!
What more could you want?
See how I could go on and on and on…. Well that is what I needed for my polymer crafts. The want to go on and never stop! So, like any smarty pants I mixed the my 2 loves. Any what you get is some really cute polymer miniature characters from the show.. and more to come!
These cuties are available at my Etsy Shop
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 on what order I make them in whether that be from the 10th or 11th Doctor’s series or well even before that. I make what I like and what pops in my head at that moment. I do have a little “wish” list that I review here and there and check off the ones I have completed.
And now, I check off one more!
Not exactly sure why I like the Sliurians so much but gosh darn it I just do!
The Silurians or Homo Reptilia living under earth for millions of years, waiting for the day when they can occupy the surface again..kinda tragic in a way…
So here is my polymer clay Siliurian, I put this one up on Etsy too for other Whovians to enjoy!
How about four!!! I was busy last night creating my favorite Doctor and just couldn’t seem to stop at just one.
While the 11th Doctor has grown on me quite a bit, my heart will forever belong to the 10th.
You can find these in my Etsy shop.
I’ll combine this post with an update on my Deni Convection Oven.
Still love it! It has kept a constant temperature for over a year now and I have yet (knock on wood) to burn a piece. Polymer colors tend to darken during baking, but I have noticed that they do not darken much at all using my Deni. Sweet!
I place my pieces on a 6x6 tile to bake. The tile is placed directly on the bottom of the oven with the oven thermometer, and then I place the rack (which I covered with foil) that came with the oven over that. The reason for this is, the fan on this oven is strong. During my first baking attempts last year I found that the fan either dried out the clay to fast or it blew my smaller pieces around. So this easy fix works for me perfectly!
