Since early May I’ve been participating in Ways to Wow, a polymer clay art class over at Voila.  This past week I’ve been working hard on prototyping my piece. In the upper middle left you see one of the color tools I was working on last week.


This little fish pond on the bottom right is my first prototype.


I experimented with a few different colors for the fish, trying to figure out which is most effective.


This was the second fairy I made and am not thrilled with the results.  The first fairy was so bad she ended up as a squished pile of scrap clay.  🙁  Next I’m gonna try a little dragon instead. I can picture him peering into the pond, might be kinda cute.



This is my second “pond” filled with resin – way too much resin I’m thinking.  It probably won’t cure until next week, lol. But that’s what prototyping is all about, eh?  Making mistakes and learning new things.  Hopefully in the end it will all come together well. 🙂

Whatever you are creating, may you enjoy the process.

Happy creating and Happy Woyww!

  1. Your polymer clay work is really fantastic and that pond setup, truly amazing, It will be interesting to see how long the resin does take to set. I have never seen that brand of resin before and couldn’t read the name properly, it must be good if you are using it. Thanks for sharing and look forward to hearing how long the resin takes to set.

    Happy WOYWW

  5. Well, these look pretty good to me! At first I thought your fairy might be a mermaid – how about creating one of those to sit by the pond! I like the effect of the resin! Really looking forward to seeing what you create next week! Happy WOYWW. Julie Ann xx #42
