20 New Stamp Designs

I just got done listing 20 new small clear stamps in my Etsy Shop.

They are fun and work great for making texture in your clay or  stamping on paper. I love using them for Mokume Gane and Mica Shift techniques. Here are some of the new designs. Check the New Listing section in my Etsy Shop to find them.

Zentangles In Polymer Clay

I recently saw online that people were talking about and making something called Zentangles. I had no idea what a Zentagle was so I had to check it out for myself.

What is a Zentangle? It was developed by Maria and Rick of Zentangle, Inc. and they define zentangle as a “fascinating new art form” in which beautiful images are created “one stroke at a time” from repetitive patterns. For me it boils down to doodling 🙂 Not mindless doodling that we do while on the phone, but doing it deliberately. I have seen it described as abstract doodling, abstract drawings and monochrome pen drawings. People making zentangles find it therapeutic, mesmerizing and well….. zen like. All you need is a sheet of white paper, a fine tip black pen and your imagination to get started.

Of course polymer clay artists have taken zentangles to a new level. 🙂 Interpreting their drawing into polymer clay art. You can interpret the drawing literally and create a black & white clay “drawing” like Dora has done.


Dora also has a tutorial on making clay zentangles you can check out.

You can take it a step further and add some color to your clay zentangles like Rev Byrd has done.


Check out Daily Art Muse’s article called 6 Ideas for Polymer Clay Zentangles. Many helpful hint are shared to get you going.
