Wow I am a really big polymer clay this week. I was looking at Sweetorials on YouTube and she made this super cute Kawaii book. I thought to myself “self, you can do that right?” to which I stop myself before talking to myself and say “yes.” But I didn’t want to waste clay since I don’t work very cleanly.
So I got my scrap clay and began rolling it out and following her instructions. After I baked I noticed it looked darker then needed to. At least the white part did. I am not sure if I over baked or my oven burn it. Even so this is what it came out:
Well there truly is no rest for the wicked. My week seem to be going full steam with no stop insight. (Sigh) Ah well…. Here is the update I have done for Nae Nae’s Challenge – Superhero 2.0. I hope you guys enjoy. 🙂
I was going through my email and I was looking at one of my subbies that I follow and I saw that Nae Nae was having a challenge. Now I know I this started way back on June 15th, but I have been busy so I didn’t see this until yesterday. So if you don’t want to do this challenge I still strongly suggest you make a bookmark and send it to Nae Nae so you can give it to her local library. Here is her info:
Now below are four bookmarks I have completed which seems like nothing. But I made three set of each so that twelve bookmarks total. If you can’t see the greeting I will be putting it underneath.
Batman – Greeting
Batman maybe a superhero however did you know he was also a well-read detective. Who studied not only his opponent but his situation. He is a hero that not only trained his body but his mind.
Flash – Greeting
Did you know the Flash was a scientist first and a superhero second? Yup, that’s right he has a Master Degree. Which means he read and studied super hard.
Wolverine – Greeting
Did you know James Howlette Logan aka the Wolverine was a miner, in the circus, then served in the military for many decades. He traveled a lot meeting new people, cultures, creatures, and other people like himself. And he did it all before he became a superhero.
Wonder Woman – Greeting
Wonder woman may have been born and Amazon Princess. However she also was an army nurse, ran a mod clothing boutique, and then was a laywer. You don’t need to be just a superhero you can be awesome!
Check out my video below:
Sorry to day is not a crafty video. Nope today is the first day I have ever received “Loot Crate”. My husband got this for me as a surprise. And boy was I I coudn’t wait to open it. However my kids where awake, which meant I couldn’t make a video. So here I am 12:37am posting this. Feel free to check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=A38ErLcZ1yg&feature=youtu.be

I have taken a small break on my Silhouette and started working with clay for a bit. In honor the movie Pixel I have made my own Pacman and Inky. Now this is my first attempt at making this out of polymer clay. Not bad, but not great. I just followed MegaCraftmania on YouTube. This is how it came out:
Sorry for the bad lighting but there you have it.
I didn’t have that roller cutter like she did, so I used my needle tool and poked holes and my knife to shape the ends. I also felt like painting it rather then adding layers. If you want to take a look at the tutorial the link is below.
This latest request came from the Egyptian underworld. Yes you guess it’s from Anubis Prime. Now I had a hard time pronounce this ship, its spelled Gila. But the pronunciation (He-la). Now my Hispanic side was all over this trying to pounce this as it look as in (Gii-laa) or (Geee-laa).
Anyway that not the point… The point is the ship is done..er ships. But I was torn between making it 1.One solid 2. Stencil looking ship or 3. Make it more street art. So I just made all three.
Okay King of the Underworld your request us up!
Per the request of Rauski he wanted me to create an Astero ship. Yes this beautiful ship was one of the vessels of the Sisters of EVE made available to capuleers. I really liked the hit of red throughout the ship. A really eye catching ship for the player on the go.
Not only is it adept to venture into dangerous territories but it has engines to alternate power sources. What does that mean? It’s fast and can carry some cargo to boot. Most ship that can travel fast they can’t carry squat that what makes the Astero unique. Nice choice Rauski.
Per the request of Proopai he wanted me to create a Drake from EVE. As much I wanted to add lighting and shadows like I did for my Tristian. However after looking at the Drake I thought going in a style like Banksy would be better. You know like a stencil but just a small dab of color.
Here you go Proopai I hope you enjoy the look. Next up Rauski want me to create an Astero which kind of reminds me of a slightly longer Tie Fighter. Okay Rauski I see what I can come up with.
