It's already tuesday. Time is running when we are busy...
As you already know from Facebook (or maybe not yet), Switzerland polymer clay artist Sabine Backer is my guest in Israel the past week. We had a great week, traveling around the country, leaving enough for the next trip, weather is perfect, sunny and warm.
Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv, Haifa; getting familiar with new cuisines (Falafel, tahini, hummus) and!.... getting a new tattoo for Sabine! Surprising moments noted here!
And, Laura Tabakman carving sheet technique for creating your own textures -
|Pam's copper wire beads|
She uses copper wire in her art as a decorative border around her beads, as if it is a thread sewn into polymer.
Wire can do wonders in a polymer piece, who ever master it's techniques has a gift in his hands.
|Polymer & Marker inks|
Masha Koekak creates these inked rings and beads. Their size range from 3 to 7.5 cm, The technique include creating a clay sheet, painted on all sides with alcohol based markers. The markers create a thin layer of paint, each is sealing the tone of the previous color. Interesting effects come out as a result. The final piece is sealed with a thin layer of FIMO gel and it is bright and colorful especially on day light!
|miniature eyeglasses from wire and acetate|
All you need is scissors, pliers, tweezers, office hole punch, acetate and wire.
Next week I am back to my regular routine. Having a short pause from all duties this week, and spending quality time touring the country with Sabine was enjoying and fun.
Have a great rest of the week!
