Polymer!

I started work with polymer again.  One reason was to get back into working with color, as I've been stuck in a rut for a while.  It's helped alot, and so has my work with Doug, the 'Color Master.'  He gave me some beautiful nature photography books to look through, and also my current favorite, a huge book on Lascaux.  Ahhhhh....the colors in those caves are gorgeous!  I'm playing with that palette at the moment so will post pictures of them soon.

Here are the first ones I've done so far.  These are works in progress, nothing is finished!

    1. Thanks so much :) The exercises with polymer seem to be helping a lot. It's good to get outside my comfort zone and play with colors I normally run from! I see the value in it, and see how much I need to learn about color. xoxo

  2. Looks like you are having fun. Like the bottom pair with dark textures best.

    1. Thanks so much. I really am! Honestly, this is waaaaaay out of my comfort zone, but it is really helping, because I'm trying to use colors in different ways. xoxo

      ps, those are my faves, too. Had a few more but gave them to Doug to thank him for his help. :)

  3. Good move! Color seems to make winter seem shorter! Hahahaa. The colors you're using will look so nice with your flame painted copper.

  4. I like your thought about color making winter shorter!!

    Do you think (about the copper and the polymer)? I have a few palettes I've been working on that I thought would work better. This is really so new but it's so good to push myself in new ways. I will try them with the copper, that was the original idea but wasn't sure I was 'there' yet. Thank you! xoxo

  6. Color can be a stretch for me too sometimes. I like how you contrasted it with the texture and earthiness of the tassel bringing the pink down a notch.

    1. Thanks, dear friend :) It definitely helped. I tried it on and really love how it feels and looks as well. The mustard color in the sari silk helped too.
