New use for old tools.

I found some cake icing tips at a yard sale and bought them. I was hoping to find some way of using them in my claying adventures. Ugh I couldn't get the clay to push through the tips so I decided to try and get them to work with an extruder. It so worked with the Makins Clay Extruder. So here you see the 2 tools combined as 1 and a cupcake I made using the new take on icing tips. =)

Layering clay sheets for the first time

I wanted to try the technique I have seen others do. You know the one where they have flowers and bees and butterflies all in a nice clean sheet of clay. Vblarney of bought me the tut for my birthday from my etsy favorites and I finally got the chance to try it out. This keychain is one of my first attempts at the techique. I used my butterfly cane, a couple different leaf canes, a flower cane and a couple different colored skinner blend canes with black and white stripes around them (also bought by Vblarney). The keychain is on my etsy.

The very first project from this tech was also made into a keychain and sent off to Vblarney as a thank you. =)

New use for temp. tattoos

The punk heart and the butterfly will soon be added to my etsy store. I was wanting to try image transfer but it really wasn't working for. Mostly because I don't have a toner printer. =)

I do however have a large collection of temporary tattos so I thought I would give it a go. I avtually like how they turned out. I also have more things I made with them on my flickr.
