As part of the Ongoing Ornament swap I decided to try my hand at “painting” using polymer clay on an ornament for @Lynx.
My rules were simple: the entire piece had to be clay, no actual paint whatsoever. I love working with clay but this was my first attempt at this particular style.
I started with a metal round as a base and created a marbled clay background to cover it. For the rest I just rolled clay as thin as possible and then began layering and blending it.
The end result is a bit impressionist but I really like the dimensionality.
I love this! And I love this even more that I know that you did not use paint! I wondered if you had used poly clay! This is really really beautiful. Thank you so much!
Wow, this turned out beautifully!
Beautiful … as a bird watcher/photographer, I like that you added little details, like the brown tufting around his beak.
all of that is clay?!?? DANG! If you wouldn’t have told me I would’ve never known
This is magnificent, thanks for sharing!
Wow! I can’t even paint with paint let alone clay. Amazing!
Gorgeous! It looks so much like paint paint. Very cool!
That’s super rad! I love the painting with clay technique.
So much texture, and the marbeling is sublime!
I think this is the first I’ve seen this kind of polyclay technique and it looks so cool!
Thank you! If you search pinterest there are some beautiful examples of polymer clay art/painting.
I’m keeping it out year round and happily looking at it right now!
Awww, that makes me so happy!
The texture is really amazing, so cool!
