2 FREE Micro Macrame video tutorials - When Polymer clay and alcohol inks meet cords and knots

Polymer clay adapts into it so many mix media techniques - glass, mosaic, crochet - everything can be decorated with polymer clay beads...
So why not Micro Macrame knotting?

Micro Macrame may look complicated at first sight but it is in fact a very simple handcraft dated hundreds of years ago, used all over the world with thin / thick cords.

You can find macrame knotting in home accessories, jewellery, fashion and many more.

Once you master 3-4 basic knots you can create your own patterns and design and combine them with your own custom made polymer clay beads.

No need for special tools or materials! Only cords and beads!

Here is a free sneak peek to 2 free tutorials creating polymer clay earrings combined with metal findings and knotting.

If you do not have metal finding with holes you can create your own using polymer clay and small cutters, tooth picks or drilling after baking.

Have fun!

Polymeri Online 28.5.15 | Back from USA Orlando Fandango 2015 ~ Journey Photo Album ✈, Christina's children's book figurines, 2 ways to build a polymer clay house, Free polymer clay bugs tutorial

I always say that you need a vacation after a vacation, running from one place to the other, visiting, touring, traveling - it's exhausting! ;)

Returning from my long US trip (vacation and polymer clay retreating) is not easy but I'm here to share some links I gathered over the past month.

First, my Orlando Fandango 2015 retreat photo album - I had the honour of being one of 3 instructors in this year Orlando Fandango 2015 – A polymer clay retreat hosted in Lake Yale, Leesburg, Florida, along with 2 colleague teachers (Lindly Hunani and Eugena Topina) and ~60 students.
My Alcohol inks "INKredible" class was chosen by last year 2014 Fandango participants as one of the 3 classes to be taught on 2015.
The classes and trip were wonderful in all aspects - people, organisational, personal.

As a final surprise I got spotted by Cynthia Tinnaple and featured on Polymer Clay Daily.
You are welcome to see photos & read more about it in my site post -


Christina Patterson's children's books
Christina Patterson, also mentioned here in last year post was spotted in her Instagram gallery.
Back then I saw her & partner's cake toppers work, but now their cute beautiful creations are also in children's books.

You are welcome to visit their Facebook page here -
and website -

Jill's framed house
Jill Curran can get you a new home in a great price! A home in polymer clay! BUT! her creations represents memories... A place where a very special wedding, celebration, or christening took place, she sculpt them to fit a framed portrait, or a shallow relief house ornament. She starts from photographs and make a one of a kind customised replica of any building. 
A cherished personalised gift.

Avaritania's 3D polymer clay houses
Another "Home-builder" creating houses, this time in 3D - Avaritania
According to her post she is quite new in the live journal group page but judging from her work she has a touch of clay in her fingertips. 
If I understood correctly, she used to build them on thin paper as her base but when her walls kept "collapsing" she moved to a thicker cardboard and now she uses templates.

Polymer clay bugs tutorial
Last one for the day is another live journal catch - a polymer clay bug class by Aleksanta.
Now that the summer is getting near and bugs are around us, you can create some of your own and place them on a shirt, bag or even as a "scarecrow" to frighten other bugs!

Enjoy your upcoming weekend!

Polymeri Online 15.4.15 | Instagram Polymer finds, Sculpture-Mania, Mix media faces, Nail decals on polymer and my 2015 New INKredible alcohol inks and polymer clay jewellery class samples

This week it's Instagram-Polymer!

Domenico's figurines
Domenico Scalisi is a sculpture posting in Instagram as well as working in Etsy (his shop is closed at the moment so you can take a look at his sold items).
Domenico is from Italy and his creations are intriguing.
Both fun, smiling yet seems distant and sometimes sad.
He is using his sculpted art as figurines as well as on jewellery findings, creating custom portraits and designs. His Facebook page is fascinating.
His Instagram account gives you a glimpse into his process work -

Jacob's sculpturing
Jacob M. Reeb is another Instagram & Etsy's find, creating mummy dolls, or other collectible items, carefully sculpted to give his items an amazing character. He mentions acrylics, super sculpey as well as resin as his main materials, mentioning the items may break when falling. His store slogan "Confronting the shadow within..." genuinely reflects his art.

Face rings by Nata
Nata Koshtelo's instagram features unique polymer clay work as well as drawing and mix media art. Her jewellery is mostly faces sculpturing, transfers & drawing. She has a vk account with more than 200 photos in her gallery.

Nail decals on polymer
Fancyful devices (Marina Rios) describe her Instagram account as "Victorian tribal rustic cosmic assemblage jewellery". She feels the happiest when she is sitting in a room when she has million of supplies all around her. She is a mix media artist but sometimes uses polymer clay in her work. Realising she had no flat coin beads for bracelets, she experimented with little fingernail decals on polymer.

I am getting ready for my class with new 2015 INKredible alcohol inks and polymer samples.
It was a fun adventure going back to my known alcohol inks techniques, with new knowledge I acquired during the years (INKredible was first released on 2012!).
It was a game of mix and match, adding new materials used in my newer tutorials while being loyal to the inks and previous class. I think this will be a good start for a new INKredible II class!
If you cannot come to my class you are welcome to check the online version here -
