I'm giving away this pink Love magnet this month! The giveaway is open to residents of the USA, age 18 and over, and ends on February 28th.


For a chance to win, enter at: www.joymagnetart.com/giveaway.html

I rarely ever offer light switch plates on auction, so here is a chance to bid on something quite unique!

This piece is made in the style of my Joy Magnet Affirmative Art, from polymer clay, with metallic pigments, and adorned with faceted glass beads, and other sparkly bits. It will fit around a single large (flat) style light switch.

The words are: "SOAR", "Live the life you were born for", and "The world is your playground".

The piece is on auction for 5 days, ending on Tuesday, February 4th.

Need to brighten up a room, especially with the holidays around the corner? Check out these light switch plate covers that I recently made, using special inks, including one with an embossed owl. Every once in a while I need a break from polymer clay, and dabble a bit in other mediums. These unique switchplates have an eye catching look of stone or marble. Pop over to my Etsy Shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/AliciasCreations to take a look!

I recently created a piece that has truly been one of the most fun filled projects of my year! It is a whimsical light switch plate, with a special mouse perched on top.

I've been experimenting with inserting "real whiskers" on some of my non-bird creations, and am excited with the realism that it adds!

To see photos of this piece as a work in process, as well as to read more about the REAL mouse who inspired it, take a look at my Facebook album here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150286355248729.349182.137935228728.

Besides all kinds of birds, my custom work has included Dogs, Cats, Horses, Elephants, Marmosets, Chinchillas, Bushbabies, and now Mice - I wonder what's next? :)

I promised a friend of mine that I would make an Owl pin for her, so when her birthday rolled around recently, I decided to make a few pieces for you all too. :) I chose the Great Horned Owl, and what a fabulous challenge it was! These birds are so magnificent, and recreating them in clay gave me the opportunity to try out some more complicated techniques that I rarely use with sculpting parrots.

There are three different necklaces on auction, including a beaded set, a pendant, and a choker. The prices on the owls are higher than the parrot jewelry due to the great deal of time and more involved work. Many people assume these are painted, however absolutely NO paint was used, instead just layers and layers of colored clay, applied painstakingly in different ways give these sculptures their realistic look. The eyes are also clay, and are glossed for a life-like appearance.

 

NEW ON ETSY:

I took a break from sculpting last weekend to play around with some different techniques including inking, and made an assortment of unique light switch plates. There are a variety of colors and designs now for sale in my ETSY SHOP!

Please note that these are "first come, first serve" - if you see something that you like, you will need to purchase it immediately on Etsy, since these listings are not auctions. If you've never purchased anything on Etsy, it is super easy, so check it out!
