So, Graphic 45 is my most favorite paper in the world. I won’t even call it scrapbooking paper because it is SOO much more than just scrapbooking. It totally speaks to my favorite aesthetics of Victorian, steampunk and retro. And the important thing – it plays well with Sculpey! The paper is durable enough to bake with the clay and the plasticizers don’t leach into it. I guess I’m trying to say that it’s a true multimedia paper that I’ve used for a couple of years now, especially in my steampunk work and now in some of my collage work (look for that coming soon through Sculpey).
So I need to post at least 6 images of my work (I have to post images that have already been published and I can post to public). I have close to 100 more of these images on my Pinterest (pinterest.com/synsclay).
I love the combination of metal and clay for steampunk:
Faux raku and clay is a signature technique of mine:
This was originally a photo of mine that I converted to a line drawing, transferred to the clay and painted with Pinata Inks for Expression magazine:
This is the infamous clock I made out of a sheet of textured Sculpey and Pearl Ex that appeared in a Jacquard ad in several magazines.
I love leaves. They are a theme in many of my designs.
One more steampunk pendant that was published in Bead Trends:
