Medium: Mixed Media

My name is Lee Anne, and I am a self taught polymer clay artist. I use polymer clay because of the versatility of the material, the colors and how I can blend it with different mediums to create patterns and textures. I use blades, brayers, a pasta machine, and an extruder to turn solid colors of clay into amazing patterns. I use various stamps, cutters, and odd household items to imprint and shape my creations. I have learned to mix translucent liquid clay into opaque colors by adding alcohol ink and pastels.
I started with earrings, necklaces and bracelets and have moved on to covering odd sizes of glass vases and jars with my designs. Tin boxes are another I love to cover. I call them treasure boxes, as you can store what you like to keep safe or hidden inside. I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I do. Thanks!
