Watercolor Mosaic Tutorial

On my first days on Flickr I met a sweet girl from Brazil, Monica Gerard, and she taught me an amazing polymer clay technique - The Watercolor Mosaic. It was back in 2005. After I tried it I was fascinated by this technique and I made a tutorial in Hebrew. I'm very happy to share it with you now :) enjoy!
The Watercolor Mosaic Technique

This technique based on the use of transparent polymer clay, Fimo brand, combined with white and black color. Very easy method, but you need to know how to make a Skinner blend with three colors.

Color inspiration treasures - Summer 2011

Making treasuries on Etsy is a fabulous way to share your favorite items and make a statement with your own stylish options that are not your own shop listings; this way sellers treat favorably other shops. When making a treasury with just the right stuff, the outcome is a harmonic collection that combines the most hip, up to date trends and color combinations for this season.

In the past week or so a few of my listing were chosen by treasury builders (or is it makers?)
I am very blessed and thankful for that. Thank you friends!!!
You can enter the treasury curator shop from the link below the treasury pic.

Enjoy these amazing items, trends & color palletes and shops.
You don’t have to go far for inspiration :))

Fresh Studio Update

There are Some things that you can not run away from… you know what I'm talking about :)) one of them is cleaning & reorganizing your studio. It is only natural to accumulate around you craft supplies, materials, tools and appliances, some important stuff for your daily creative work, most of them you love and cherish. But somehow, although I try to be tidy & organized, well ahhmm… I can't help it and my studio get a bit (wink) messy! In this point you must take a brave decision and do the thing you've ignored from… yes I am talking about cleaning and tiding your work place.
To achieve this goal you need a few things!
First, you need TIME and the next is the most precious ingredient, it is PATIENCE!
When you combine those two together you can start. After you are done, there is a fantastic achievement feeling, you even can take a long smooth breath and your studio is fresh like new, isn’t this a sweet feeling?
It took me about two weeks (yes yes I am slow) to accomplish a major reorganizing but the outcome is worth it.

Before - a glimpse just before I've started

Going petite and smiling from ear to ear

There is something very relaxing working on very tiny things, I really do not know why… maybe because it works on my concentration, and I really disappear in it, all my thought are gone, well, it is really therapeutic :)

What can you do with a little, tiny, petite PC cane?
Slice it, bake it and attached it to an ear stud and you get sweet little post earrings that makes you smile from ear to ear :)

Canes from scraps - Part 1

I love to make simple canes especially from scraps.
After I finish working on some canes, I get a load of scrappy ends, so I mix them together and get new colors…. I love that!
So here are 2 simple ones… they look ahhh ahhhm not so shabby… BUT as I say, everything got potential and when the accessories from them are done, I will show you what potential I am talking about.... yeah!

For me they are simply delicious :)

Until next time,
Hugs & kisses
