Stupendous Steampunk Heart

Just in time for Valentines Day!

While at the CHA show in LA, I took a class taught by Christi Friesen. Having worked with polymer clay quite a bit, I couldn't resist creating this steampunk heart! In this class we used Premo clays, Sculpey tools, Darice pliers, and Jacquard's PearlEx mica powders. Every student had an entirely different looking steampunk heart. Wished now I had taken a picture of them as they came out of the oven. The small metal pieces you see on the heart are tiny clock parts.

Just finished polymer samples tonight for a class I'll be teaching March 26. Of course all my students will be sporting a brand new polymer clay pendant made by THEM! Just a teaser for ya!

Those were a lot of fun! I took a picture of a couple trays of the hearts. You are welcome to grab it off my facebook page if you like. I need to finish mine... thanks for the reminder!

I saw these when Roxi posted on FB. Very, very cool! I hope I can see it in person.

Shelly, I'll wear this to our next's prettier in person. I love the pipe coming out of the heart along with the phillips screw.
