Polymer Clay Lantern- finished at last!

First of all I'd like to thank Cynthia Tinapple for the lovely Polymer Clay Daily article she did about me! The article featured a picture of my "not ready for prime time" lantern which served to show that I'm doing a lot of R&D here! The shelved lanterns have led me to attempt #3 which I consider to be successfully completed!   I came up with a few strategies along the way- "splinting kelp", using an embossing gun for out of oven firing for large pieces that won't go in the oven but do need final touches  and inventing a large drying oven involving a sheet, a floor heater and several large rocks... necessity is always the Mother of invention!

approx. 4" wide 27" tall


  1. This is just amazing!! Thanks for posting.

  2. Wow. I love this. It somehow feels 'ethereal' to me... Just wonderful!!!


I always love to get comments!
