The pen marks on this doodle went really well… Then I had the bright idea if putting watercolour over it, decided it was a mistake and tried to rub it down with toilet tissue… Yeahhh. I kinda like the effect though! And it’s always fun to have a doodle experiment!
The first batch of Eyeballs Kids are now live on Etsy and waiting for new homes! I had such a great response from Bob, the first Eyeball Kid that I couldn’t resist making some more. We have Jem, Babs, Cynthia, Goldie, Clem, Gavin, Jack and Kevin all waiting to keep an eye on you…
I made these with a new Polymer clay called Cosclay. It’s amazing stuff! Has a bend to it when cooked which makes sure all of the thin parts don’t break, and also don’t stab people, much to the dislike of the Eyeball Kids me thinks… I then create the shimmer effect with mica powder and varnish to keep it strong! Let me know who you like the best, or what sort of things you would like to see on the next Eyeball Kids! Message me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on the blog!
Hi all! Wow I am so bad at keeping up with the blog. I even have weekly alerts on my phone that I conveniently seem to miss! But hey, I’ve been busy… I’ve been one of the very lucky people who have had two months off work on furlough in the UK and I’ve had the best time exploring and playing with all different sorts of material and inks. I was very fortunate to be a Kickstarter on the new Cosclay polymer clay from www.cosclay.com It’s astounding stuff that bends like rubber once cooked and it has opened an avenue that I have always wanted to get into, freaky fantasy pendant necklaces! Using a mixture of Cosclay, crystals, mica powder and paint I have been inventing some very weird and wonderful pendants that are already starting to be adopted around the world!
One eyed Bob was the first to be adopted and is now very happy staring at the sights and sounds of the North. I have some more Eyeball Kids coming up soon, and will blog when they are ready to enter the real world! But I also have some fun and freaky tentacle pendants currently for sale at Etsy! www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ShellyStill
