Spotlight Artist - Niki is molding and sculpting with polymer clay

Hello lovelies! I do hope that today finds you all well and good. As some of you may know, I like to experiment with different products and learn new ways to use said products. Today I would like to share some different ways to use polymer clay with your mixed media designs. There are so many ways to incorporate oven bake clay or air dry clay into your designs. I am sharing polymer clay techniques that I find the most fun!

1. Cornstarch is a great way to get moulds to release and also can help get out fingerprints left in your clay.

2. When using colored clay it will leave a lovely colored residue on your hands, an easy way to get this off is to use a hand sanitizer.

3. DO NOT use Sharpie's on your clay, Sharpie's are solvent based and over time will bleed and the dye will blur leaving your design a hot mess. 

4. Add acrylic paint to your clay to create any color you would like, although not as vibrant in color as clay that is already colored.

5.  An acrylic rolling pin, sculpting tools and a slicing blade are some essential tools when working with clay.

I don't really have a specific clay I use, basically any oven bake clay that is on sale is good enough for me but not all clay is created equal. The only clay that I have found I don't particularly like is DAS air dry clay. When shaping clay I like clay that will stick together, even when you have to add some extra clay, the DAS clay did not do that. It crumpled and the pieces did not stick together.

I prefer to use oven bake clay for most of my designs. Oven bake clay tends to not shrink and stays true to form whereas air dry clay WILL shrink and then you may be stuck with a piece that isn't exactly what you were going for.

One of the more easy ways to create with polymer clay is to just roll it out and make a flat piece then use your handy dandy stamps and stamp into it. Easy peasy and this adds wonderful depth and texture to a design. This technique is shown in the altered paper mache book photo below. The entire background panel is made from polymer clay that I stamped into. When you add your colors (in this case I used LSG sprays) it pools into the recesses of the stamped clay and adds nice contrast. I used oven bake clay for this design.

The blue "tiles" under the torn paper above the butterfly are air dry clay that I stamped into. I used these leftovers on this design because the tiles cracked as they were air drying and I couldn't use it for my intended project. That is how I learned about the difference between air dry and oven bake clay. 

Another way to use polymer clay is to sculpt little accessories for your design. For this idea I usually use white clay that I can paint any color I would like. I use acrylic paints on the clay. You can also paint parts of the sculpt you are doing, then bake it, and continue to add to your design after baking. The paint will stay where it should on your sculpt. The picture below shows some small little elements I added to my skeletons. The little top hat and the bow tie on the gentleman is made from clay. The necklace and bracelet on the lady skeleton is made from clay. There are also two pumpkins that are clay and the tombstones are made from clay.

Or you can go a bit bigger and create an entire model sculpt from clay. The wonderful thing about clay is you can keep changing your sculpt if you don't like the result that is happening. For my Jack Skellington (my first attempt at a full sculpt) I wasn't liking his head so I re-designed it about 3 times. Make a wire armature if you are going to do a full sculpt, it helps with the overall shape and provide nice support. I used oven bake clay for Jack and Zero. Another technique that you can achieve with clay is to use it in molds. I have 3 different molds on the Jack Skellington design. The clock is a mold, the frame around the tombstone and the pillars by the pumpkins are molds. For the molds I used air dry clay and would have to say that I was not happy with the results. In the future I will be using oven bake clay for my molds.

One of my absolute favorite designs included the paw print of my beloved German Shepherd, Raj. I created the design around her paw print that I had made when she was about 7 years old (I lost her to cancer in 2014). The vet clinic I worked at was wanting to give clients a memento of their furry loved one and I got to experiment with different companies paw print kits. I wasn't too keen on most and bought some polymer clay and had my girl step onto it thus creating her print and viola! I used that print from years ago and pushed polymer clay into it (very gently) and created a reverse paw print. The reverse print let me feel the texture from her paw pad and it was like I was holding her paw again. The picture below is right after baking the clay.

The close up paw print picture below shows the texture from Raj's paw and I can feel the texture! It is amazing and such a lovely way to incorporate your furry critters into your art.

I do hope you have enjoyed, and maybe learned something from this post. Feel free to ask any questions, I am still learning as I go so if I can't answer something I will find someone that can! :) 

Don't forget to check out our current challenge "Celebrate Your Style" that runs until June 4th! And remember we have some fabulous prizes from amazing sponsors like The Funkie Junkie BoutiqueEmerald Creek Craft Supplies and Alleystamp

Hugz and Carpe Diem!

Feature Artist - Celebrate Your Style - Welcome Kris

Hello Everyone!

Branka here and I am so thrilled to introduce you to our Feature Artist for May, the lady who was the winner of my 'Crazy For Colour' challenge in March. Please welcome Kris from My Beloved Arts & Crafts!

Kris is a fabulous mixed media artist and if you visit her blog you'll see how wonderfully she combines textures and colors using so many amazing techniques. Her art work is so inspirational and so impressive whether she used dark or bright tones in her projects.

I am so excited about the project she put together for our current challenge 'Celebrate Your Style' and it really showcases her unique and amazing style.


Hi, how are you, I am Kris (which is my nickname!) from My Beloved Arts & Crafts. My real name is Kristiina, I am originally from a country called Estonia but my home is in Dublin, Ireland for almost 16 years. I am in my early thirties, married, have 3 kids who keep me on my toes and I absolutely am in love with all sorts of creativity. Long story short!

Art is a great passion of mine already from my early childhood years. I found mixed media only a few years ago but my deep affection for it is growing stronger day by day. It is just amazing what you can come up with with using many different media on one project. I have always found pleasure in traditional art though - pencil drawing and oil painting, acrylic painting but I enjoy anything artsy and crafty basically, like altered art, jewellery making, card making, home decor, sculpting, art journalling and of course watercolouring and may I even say lino cutting sometimes and the list would go on.

I love retro, vintage, distressed, and aged style mostly but can try many things, it depends of the mood, liking and the ability I have, really. Abstract art is the one I truly enjoy too, maybe even the most in recent years and I try to incorporate mixed media with it. I am keen on creating textures, using mostly vibrant colours and adding details.

May I take this opportunity here and say my thank you words again for choosing my canvas as a winner and therefore the opportunity for being here as a Feature Artist. It truly is a great honour! As the theme is 'Celebrate Your Style' for the May, it inspired me to create a mixed media abstract art 'texture celebration' on a wooden panel (12x12")! 

And I just had to use some of Powertex products again (and I promised to myself that I won't touch those this time but ...). I chose a wooden panel because it is stronger than a stretched canvas as I intended to use heavy texture, and it is ready to hang on the wall too which is a great bonus. I do hope I can inspire you with my work!

At first you would always want to cover the work area with thin plastic when working with Powertex as it doesn't stick to thin plastics so I just use the bin bags and tape them down on the sides. Kitchen floor is my working area! After finishing you can just pop the dirty bags in the bin and like no mess ever happened! Don't wear your fancy clothes obviously and I always wear nitrile gloves too when using a wet media, it's great to do art but the condition of my skin is also important to me.

Next step for me was to pour the Powertex (here I used the Transparent colour) in a plastic bowl and cover a piece of stockinette with it, and attach it to the panel. By doing this, it just made a starting point for me. I painted the panel here and there with Powertex, some areas thicker, some thinner. I rubbed on Stone Art too (not seen here). It's a cellulose powder and it should be used combination with Powertex and with it you can create a mixture too that resembles a clay. I just rolled up some random pieces for some texture, like below.

Then I added a thick layer of Easy 3D Flex mixture with a painting knife. That one is an inorganic filling compound and comes in a powder form too.You have to mix it with Powertex and I used a large painting knife for it. 

The mixture resembles a lot like a whipped up meringue! It will show cracks when it is very thickly applied. The heat tool will help too or a hair drier or leaving it on the sun for example. I had so high expectations for it but I waited and waited, for days and only a few cracks developed. I must of been doing something wrong or it just takes ages! So I gave up and changed my plan by adding a thick lace fabric piece and Ribbon Trimmings mixed with Powertex on top where were no cracks. I mixed Transparent and Bluish Grey for those.

But the paste is so versatile as more of that Easy 3D Flex you add, you end up having a sculpting clay, it dries to the air and gets rock hard (you could do all sorts of stuff with it) but I just made again a couple of flat pieces like with other clay and pressed down on the panel but before I brushed down some Powertex. Same for the Stone Art pieces. This will act as glue!

I also left some clay to dry, rolled it with a small painting brush and I had a clay pieces with beautiful texture but smooth to touch. Then did the same way as with other clay parts I used before. By now they are mostly covered on the panel but that's fine with me, I see them and know they are there. Enjoying the process!

I mixed Powertex with its colour pigments to paint the whole surface (except the fabrics) in brown colour. When the clay parts and everything else with Powertex were strong and dry to touch (be patient with the drying time!), I brushed on a layer of chalk paint (except the fabrics), let it dry and then removed most of it with a damp soft cloth as I just wanted it to get to the crevices. From there came in acrylic paints and acrylic inks, here and there. 

In the mean time I glued on some pieces of slate, using a Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel which is just perfect for heavy items. More slate later on too. If you may wonder how I got these pieces - from a slate tray which I hammered down!

A mixture of Daler Rowney Acrylic Ink and Golden Tar Gel with a help of a wooden skewer gave me gorgeous 3D splashes. After drying I used a splatter brush with Sennelier Abstract Paint. A few more splatters with acrylic ink, more mixture of Tar Gel, and more ink splatters!

I baked raspberries from Fimo Soft Clay. When cooled, I smeared them with Antique Wax, cleaned off the excess with a soft cloth and a dry brush. 

It needed that something more so I thought that a zip would do, I cut the fabric part off and got an interesting embellishments to glue on. And I was left to paint the edges, a day and more to dry and cure and with Liquitex High Gloss Varnish I got the colours to pop and the protection. And I was finally finished.

I do hope you like it and enjoyed reading the process. Keep up the great work Pamellia and the team, you rock! Thanks a million!


WOW, what a fantastic project with a brilliant combination of rich textures and vibrant colors! A real mixed media gem full of awesome elements! Thank you Kris, from the entire team for joining us here at Anything But Cute with your fabulous project!

I hope that you are inspired as much as I am with this absolutely amazing project and I encourage you to join in our anniversary challenge 'Celebrate Your Style'.

Wow - so honored and excited to be here to "party"! I sooooo love these gals at Anything But Cute. They are such incredible artists and some of the most caring and encouraging gals I have met in the art world, to date. 

My goal was to create something bright, cheerful and fun in keeping with the happiness of a year of huge successes at ABC. I sure hope you will hop over to my blog and see the step-by-step tutorial, as well as lots of yummy photos!! And guess what? There is even an original poem there for the very special and well deserved ABC Celebration!! Hugs to you all!!! j. 

Hello everybody! Congratulations Happy Birthday Blog "Anything But Cute" ! My gift to you - a tutorial for making such an old treasure chest.

To see a tutorial invite you to look into my blog "Скрап-ХоббиМания". Be sure to grasp with itself a cup of coffee. I adore coffee. And still I absolutely love scrap. I met scrapbooking autumn 2012. I like to make albums and canvases. Although at the beginning of the way, I was doing a lot of layouts. Creates in Vintage style, Fabric White Vintage, Shabby, Grunge, and of course, SteamPunk. In almost all of these styles, I use the technique of mix-media. I hope my tutorial will be to you to liking.

Hello, my name is Deb Riddell (better known as Paxton Valley Folk Art around blogland) and I am so happy to be here at Anything But Cute to help them celebrate their one year anniversary, congratulations ABC!  I was shocked and honoured to get an email from Pamellia telling me I'd been chosen as one of their favourite artists for the year and thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer, thank you so much.

This month's anniversary theme at Anything But Cute is 'Celebrate Your Style'.  My creative style is vintage and I am always inspired by Mother Nature so I used these inspirations to create this dragonfly reverse canvas to celebrate my style. I used lots of layers and techniques to create this canvas and have some step by step photographs on my blog to show you how I made it, so hope you will be able to stop on by.

Thank you again to Pamellia and the design team at Anything But Cute for allowing me to be a part of their anniversary celebration.  And I hope that you too will 'Celebrate Your Style' and join in the fun here at ABC, can't wait to see what you make!  Happy creating, Deb xo

I was surprised and thrilled when Pamellia e-mailed me to say I had been chosen as an Anything But Cute Favorite Artist of the Year and to invite me to be a Guest Designer to help celebrate their First Year Anniversary!  The theme for the challenge is Celebrate Your Style.

I am a fairly new convert to the mixed media style and I'm slowly learning all the layering, painting, and rusting techniques. I tend to be a 'clean and simple' designer which probably sounds very contradictory to mixed media - but that is my style and I'm going to celebrate it!!! I absolutely LOVE books - reading them, holding them, shopping in book stores for them and making them! So I created a little 4" x 5" x 1 1/2" book for my project using Eileen Hull's Passport Die from Sizzix.

My overall theme in images and sentiments on the cover and the pages is affirmation and being positive, strong women as we go through life. I invite you to stop by my blog here - to see just how I put this little book together and to see what's inside!

Thank you again, to Pamellia and the rest of the Design Team for inviting me to participate in this celebration! I also look forward to seeing what you create to "Celebrate Your Style".  Please join us in the Anything But Cute - First Year Anniversary challenge! Julia

Hello, yes I know I was only here in March as a featured artist but recently I was delighted to receive a lovely email from Pamellia. She gave me the wonderful news that I had been voted by the team as one of their favourite artists of the year. Wow, I am truly humbled by this as there is a lot of fabulous talent around here.  Thank you so much.

Pamellia asked me to make something to celebrate the challenge's 1st anniversary which shows "My style". My style is quite feminine but I do like to dip my toe into grunge too. I use a lot of mixed media in my work.  I love learning new techniques and trying new products so I think my style is also constantly evolving, just like the world in which we live in. I love art journalling and I also make "Moments" to celebrate family occasions using mixed media. My crafting is totally influenced by the seasons, Mother Nature and my family and often combines all 3.

For this special occasion I decided to make an double art journal spread celebrating all the seasons. This was a real labour of love and I used lots of techniques. You can see them and more close ups of each season over at my blog here.

I would like to wish the ladies at ATBC a very happy 1st anniversary, where on earth has that year gone? I have really enjoyed entering their challenges and I look forward to continuing to do so. Cheers and birthday hugs, Jane x

Let me start off by saying Thank You to the Anything But Cute Team for picking me as one of the Favourite Crafters!  EEK... I cannot believe it.  

Nicole here and I am a crafter, blogger and designer where you can find all the things I create and mistakes I make on my blog Nicole Wright Designs.

My style tends to lean towards masculine.  I prefer natural colour tones, metal and gears to anything cute.  I will usually find a way to take the cute and make it grungy. Stop by my blog and check out a full tutorial on this card including the metallic powders, distress crayons and Sizzix dies. 

Stop by and say Hi.  Be sure to take a closer look at the gears when you are there.

Hi there! I'm thrilled to be here to help the majorly talented Anything But Cute team celebrate their 1st anniversary! Huge thanks ladies for including me as one of your favourite artists of the year - it's truly an honour.

Shabby chic / vintage is my favourite style and I also love all things nature so to "Celebrate my Style" I've made a trinket box that adapts to the varying seasons. The scene on the top lid represents Spring / Summer and a second scene, inside the lid, depicts chillier winter times. Please pop over to my blog, Paper Profusion, to see lots more pictures.

Wishing Pamellia and all at Anything But Cute a Happy, Happy 1st Anniverary with many congratulations. Wishing you even more success in years to come. Nicola x

Hi everyone! A whole year of fabulous challenges at Anything but Cute……and I have been asked to join the celebrations! I can't tell you how excited I am! What an honour this is to be here as a favourite artist at ABC! Thank You so much!

I don't really have a crafting style - I will give almost anything a go - so eclectic is the word I suppose! I love using up my scraps though, so there's a lot of that on my blog Pearshapedcrafting

The theme here this month is 'Celebrate Your Style'. I do love making little books, and this time I have Paris on my mind - having only returned from Paris 3 weeks ago! It was also chance to use up more of my scrap mountain! I hope you will come and see the inside of my little book!

A very Happy Anniversary to all the talented team at Anything But Cute! Chris


Wow, so are you completely blown away by those amazing projects or what!! What a line up of inspiration for you all, and we aren't done yet. We still have some incredible projects to show you from the Anything But Cute Design team!!

Anne - Redanne
I wanted to celebrate my style by creating a sea themed project.  Seahorses are my favourite sea creatures so I used three beautiful Seahorse knobs to adorn a mini cabinet, which I altered Andy Skinner style and I used some clay from my stash to make an Octopus ....

Autumn - Sew Paper Paint
For our birthday celebration and my first project with the team, I wanted to create a mixed media mini album.  I have been on a cardboard junk journal kick so I worked out a mini accordion version, filled with watercolor puddles, stamps, and grungy texture - all of my favorite things!

Branka - Vintage Handmade
I wanted to celebrate my style and our first birthday with this handmade canvas art journal. I used a  lot of sewing, hand dyed fabrics, ribbons, some yarn, threads, acrylic paints and markers in creating this vibrant and colourful project.

Lisa - A Mermaid's Crafts
For my first design team project, I wanted to celebrate my style with a shabby chic canvas. I covered the background using Andy Skinner's Mega Crackle technique and then layered it with my some of my favorite things: crackle paste, crackle paint, texture paste, distress inks, glitter, butterflies, cheesecloth and lots of flowers.

Niki - Pawsitively Creative Crafts
I wanted to celebrate my style by creating something I have never tried before and also using one of my favorite movies as inspiration. Jack Skellington is made from a wire frame and polymer clay, his dog (Zero) is made from polymer clay as well. I used some new molds for the clock and pillars and the bricks around the tombstone were made with a very interesting item that anyone with a die has. Hugz and Carpe Diem!

Pamellia - My Little Craft Things
This card was made for my dear sweet friend and team mate Niki. I have combined patterned papers with mixed media products and home made flowers to create a shabby garden card for her Birthday! Happy Birthday Doc! For my tutorial portion of this, I have made a video. ENJOY!!

Sara Emily - sarascloset

To celebrate our birthday at Anything But Cute, and  my teamie, Niki's birthday, I made a card for her in my grungy style. I used glue, glass bead gel, Distress inks, paints, crayons, re-inkers, and Crazing Medium, as well as DecoArt Media paints, antiquing creams, and Crackle Glaze--and that's just on the background panel. 


WOW, I am just so amazed with the talent and creativity of our team, it's impossible not be inspired by these amazing projects! Thank you so much to everyone who entered our challenges last year, we loved seeing all your incredible work each and every month!!!

Challenge runs until June 4th - we can't wait to see what you come up with this time! Happy Crafting from the entire team and thanks for visiting Anything But Cute!
