Polymer Clay - Laurie Mika style

Elna & I discovered the wonderful world of Polymer Clay a while ago, when we stumbled upon a book by Laurie Mika.

This was my first attempt!?
The canvas was covered with a paper serviette (napkin) and gel medium tinted with a few drops of ink.

The "roof" in the center of the work, has been covered with gold-leaf to give it a bit of class.
The center of the "house" was removed and some text paper displayed at the back.
Seedbeads were added to a strip of clay under the "exploration" quote.
The flower detail is a wrist watch slider from my bag of tricks.

We used rubber stamps to create the images on the clay, before rubbing pearl powder over it to bring the images to the fore...
Glass mosaic tiles in the corners and 3 more sliders at the top complete this work of art.

Our trip to France will include working with Polymer Clay extensively and we cannot wait  to join Dayle Doroshow and the rest of the guests in just over 3 weeks time!?

Wishing you a creative week!!
