I belong to the PCETeam on Etsy (Polymer Clay Enthusiasts Team) and each month we do a 'Stretch Yourself' Challenge. This month the theme is Mardi Gras, St. Patrick's Day or Irish Themes. I chose to do something in a Mardi Gras theme and wanted to share it with you today.
I covered a glass bottle (can also be a vase) with polymer clay, stamped a leaf design on it and then used mica powders to highlight the design. I used greens, purples and golds, it added so much dimension to the piece. I added a rope around the top of the vase, I then created a Mardi Gras Mask in pearl yellow, using those same Mardi Gras colors to decorate the mask. I also made clay feathers to adorn the mask. The bottle has a cork lid and can also be used as a vase without the lid. It stands 4 1/2" tall, 3 1/2" wide at it's widest part, and the opening is approximately 3/4" ~ It was so much fun to create this one, and different from what I usually make. I enjoyed the challenge, and hope you enjoy seeing it. Please click HERE to see the listing for this Mardi Gras Mask Vase/Bottle in my Etsy Shop.
