Another Helpful Tip from Parole de Pate

This is one I just have to try ! Take a strip of craft metal (she used Art Emboss by Amaco, but I already have some aluminum flashing) and bend it into a shape and embedded the metal into clay and bake it to make a cookie cutter !!! I imagine you will have to glue the metal into the clay since clay won’t attach itself to metal without glue 🙂

Artists That Inspire Me

When I feel muse-less I like to look around the internet for inspiration. There are so many amazing polymer clay artists out there that it’s not hard to find a way to lure my muse back home. Here are a few of the artists who get my creative juices flowing.

Elise Winters for her use of color
Elise Winters - Color
Kathleen Dustin for her imagination

Sarajane Helm for her canework and beads

Julie Picarello for her colorful Mokume Gane

Judy Dunn for her use of patterns and shapes

Jeffery Lloyd Dever for his funky designs

Karen Lewis for her canework and bead designs

Jana Robets Benzon for her kaleidoscope canes

Kim Cavender for her organic designs

Tory Hughes for her imitative techniques

I could go on like this all day, so I will stop. LOL As I said, these are just a handful of amazing artists that inspire me to continue claying and hopefully one day I will find my own special style like they have. Many thanks to them all. 🙂
