Painted Skeleton Cameo by tragicrabbit07
Painted Skeleton Cameo
So recently I've started doing a line of painted cameos.  I know a lot of people will using layered resin to get that authentic look.  While I like how that looks it can sometimes come out looking a little plastic.  What I like to do is make a solid polymer clay cast of the cameo, then paint on the design in layers, usually as many as 7, to give that slightly antique ivory look to it.  I'm still playing so some are a little hit or miss.  I mostly posted this one since it was one of the first I did, and it actually turned out rather well.  This one is for me, but I will probably be offering others for sale once I get the system down a little better.
Coral Reef Tentacle Earrings by tragicrabbit07
Coral Reef Tentacle Earrings
Sometimes you just want, nay NEED, to sculpt some tentacles.  These are made from polymer clay with stainless steel fittings.  the suckers are a pain in the butt but totally worth the effort in the long run :)  I'm really happy with how this photo turned out.  I set up a small "light box" area near my living room window that managed to get fantastic diffused light.  I', fairly certain I will never get that perfect storm of weather conditions again :p

These and more available in my Etsy shop at…
Holy Moley It's been awhile since I've been on here.  Still making art and whatnot, but it's been mostly my etsy store work.  I've decided to start posting some of my better work on here, especially the photos I'm proud of.  For awhile I was TERRIBLE at taking product photos so I didn't feel right posting them on an "art" page.

Anyway, just a short update right now.  I'm getting ready for a big art show in a week so busy busy busy.  If you live in the Chicago Area feel free to come out and see me at the What's Blooming on Harrison art show in Oak Park IL.…

Anyway, I promise to update more regularly, and who knows maybe I'll dust off the tablet nad do some ACTUAL drawing in the near future.

Goblin King Pendant by tragicrabbit07
Goblin King Pendant
An updated version of my old Goblin King Pendant.  Looking at the old picture just makes me realize exactly how much I have improved.  This version is made out of polymer clay, with silver and gold acrylic paint and a gloss varnish.  It measures about 3.5 inches tall.  I based it on a mixture of the three different pendants David Bowe wears in the movie "Labyrinth" (One in his normal outfit, one in the dream sequence and one at the end)  all of them basically have the same design, but with slightly different center crests and different metals. 

Original version:…

Teeny Tiny TARDIS pendant by tragicrabbit07
Teeny Tiny TARDIS pendant
This is exactly how you get time traveling ants...  Tiny TARDIS necklace, made from polymer clay and painted with citadel acrylic paints (plus a little bit of cheap walmart black acrylic when my good stuff ran out on me :P)

I'll try to get a better picture of it, this is just the image from my Etsy shop so it's kinda small.  Anyway, I'm super happy with how this turned out, given how tiny it is.  that's a fairly standard diner style coffee cup it's hanging from.
