This 3.5” round curved dish is made from natural white polymer clay, handpainted with acrylic paints in a design adapted from a daily sketch, “Spring Window”, and embellishment. Price includes shipping.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
The black silhouette is adapted from a daily sketch using the silhouette and color scheme of Spring Window using black, bright aqua and bright yellow. Mimi quietly settled on the windowsill in the studio on a sunny late afternoon, when the sun is best. I worked a simple, kind of abstract version of her contentedly watching out the window, the calming blue and purple and green showing in her fur, the bright yellow and pale green surrounding. You can read more about the art and my daily sketches on The Creative Cat.
ABOUT THE TRINKET DISHES
This little trinket dish is 3.5″ in diameter and approximately 1/2″ deep, made from natural white polymer clay. Each dish is formed and painted individually. When I first made polymer clay trinket dishes last year they were kind of lumpy until I worked out how to make the shape for “Curving Silhouette”, but I kept those lumpy beginner dishes knowing I’d do something with them. With one of the pet expos coming up I decided it was time to explore the idea of a little decorative painting on these, and especially those rays in a circle around the central figure. And those colors!
The design is painted in matte soy-based paint. I did not add a finish to protect it because I wanted the original look and feel of the clay and paint.
This may be my last experiment with polymer clay, though. With all the warnings about its toxicity and my felines’ keen interest in what I was doing, I’ve been working with air-dry clay until the time I can start firing things.
