Helene recently posted..New Painting Reply Elsa Mora on January 24, 2013 at 6:48 am Acrylic paint is right. That’s what I used for painting the surface, finished with a special varnish. But the bird is not made of polymer clay 🙂 Reply Miyuki on January 24, 2013 at 9:02 am So beautiful!! Paper clay? Reply Elsa Mora on January 24, 2013 at 9:12 am Yay!!

Reply alison on January 24, 2013 at 5:15 pm it is indeed very beautiful! I esp. like the cinnabar beak – and the built-up blue jewels. I thought at first they were actually lapis! Elsa, I used to do jewelry-making, and I always used polyform, along with some semi-precious elements–This was when it didn’t have much precedence yet as a true art material. There’s a woman whose name I forget at the moment, but she has made these purses in the shape of women and now is making organic, botanic pieces–do you know who I mean? You would like her work, I think. Kathleen someone? I’ve had paperclay around for years, but never yet did much with it. Your bird inspires me. And you are raising the bar on the material. props for that. Alison Reply Jo DeCosta on March 8, 2013 at 10:30 am Here is Kathleen Dustins web site. She is amazing!

Will you show us the fancy leather backing? I’ve been wondering about making my charms easier on the skin… Oh! I must go! I see a lady log sleeping in the woods outside my tree house window.. Better check on her, ‘spose to get cold out Susan Wells recently posted..Tea Bubble Fortune Reply Krista Benskin on January 25, 2013 at 4:43 pm I have been a closet admirer since I found your paper cutting artwork on Pinterest a little over a year ago. I hope you don’t mind, but I included you in the inspiration post of my blog at http://dazzlingpeacock.wordpress.com/2013/01/25/inspirational-friday/. I of course linked all of my references to you and your art back to your blogs. I want to step forward and thank you for all of the inspiration you have provided me! I just discovered that you have used paper clay to make jewelry too and may use your idea to use leather backing! I am in awe of your creations as usual. 🙂 Reply Elsa Mora on January 25, 2013 at 6:45 pm Hi Krista! Thanks a lot for mentioning my work on your blog. Definitely, you should try paperclay as a material for your jewelry, it’s very versatile. Elsita 🙂 Reply Krista Benskin on January 26, 2013 at 8:27 am I have made a few jewelry pieces using the paper clay, but you have definitely inspired me to step it up a notch! Thanks Again! 🙂 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *Comment * Name * Email * Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
