Fun crafts with the Polymer Clay TV Design Team art jewelry, a Beach Plaque and a mixed media trinket box

McCaw Feather Necklace with Cindi McGee

Use Red, Yellow and Blue polymer clay or Makin’s Clay® to make an assortment of both sizes of feather using the Blowing in the Wind Feather Mold. 

Cut jewelry wire to the desired length. Alternating between a green glass bead and then a feather, begin mounting to jewelry wire by making a small ball of clay in the same color of each feather, place beneath the wire. Then gently press the feather over the ball of clay to adhere the two pieces. Fresh clay will stick to fresh clay without additional adhesive. If your feathers have started to dry just slightly, moisten with a touch of water. If adhesive is needed, use Beacon® 527 to mount feather to ball of fresh clay.  

Napkin rings and decoupaged box with Darlene Madden.

Choose napkins to upcycle and raw wooden box to paint, and decoupage a paper napkin on interior of box.
Condition clay and punch out mandala designs using circle cookie cutters, impress monogram letters with rubber stamps, paint and shape to napkin ring, bake right on wooden or metal (not plastic) napkin ring.
I used the multi leaf mold for top of wooden box, along with a pretty metal flower and metal leaves under the clay ones, I always add found jewelry pieces to my designs. (seems to be my addiction).

Starfish Buttons beach plaque by Pat Krauchune.

Create Buttons using Buttons Galore mold, tint with alcohol inks and form onto a starfish shaped base.
Use a wooden fence, or make your own using On the Fence silicone mold.
Paint paint stirring sticks and glue together to form the base. Add the rest of your mixed media pieces including shells and gravel or sand from your favorite beach!

Birds of a Feather mixed media shrine with Donna Renee Arrington.

I love turning trash to treasure...Found this piece at my local thrift store a while ago.  
Gather supplies including the Feather your Nest Add on kit.
Next a cut out some feathers using my electronic cutting machine. Paint real goose feathers with gold paint and attach various bits and bobs. Using the feather mold and premo clay, created a few green feathers to mix with the real and computer cut feather shapes. Arrange everything and glue.
