For the last months I haven’t done a lot of new funky flames. Instead I focused on other projects, but one of them is still very closely connected to creativity. This time, however, it is not an expression of my own creativity, but it is something intended to help others create beautiful things – my Little Funky Tools Sets. These are micro cutters sets of a number of specially selected and modified little tips in three different shapes – circles, ovals and teardrops. The different sizes of each shape are color-coded and easily provide great help for cutting and shaping small details and holes, texturing, dosing color recipes and more when working with different kinds of clay.

By now, I have received some wonderful feedback, and my most favorite kind of feedback is the pictures of things created with the Little Funky Tools! Thank you Artumei Artumei https://www.facebook.com/artumei.artumei:

Hi Everyone!

Today’s post is dedicated to a cane, that is very eye-catchy and actually pretty easy to make. It is based on the Bull’s eye, but instead of using only one single cane, this time they are put together to form a flower pattern. The geometry stays the same, but by changing the color combinations the final results have completely different moods. You can also see clearly the progress I made to more precise and clear shape forming, color mixing and surface treating.

The first variation is minimalistic, only with white ( Fimo Soft) and translucent (Fimo Accents) polymer clay. It looks gentle and detailed and is easy to match with other pieces of jewelry and clothing.

You can leave the cylindrical shape after cutting the cane, or you can continue further and give it a little twist and make a spiral. I personally love the spirals- they look amazing regardless of the point of view can be used as an accent of the outfit. However the simple circle has its own beauty and works perfect with casual outfits.

The second cane is made with the opposite color concept. The petals of the flower are with gradient from dark green to white and are outlined with black, and the background is in grass green. For me they bring the association of a light fresh wind in the forest and match wonderfully to green eyes:)

For the third cane I experimented with red and clear translucent and tried to make a gradient with them for the petals. I also made everything too small and suppose the red outlines polluted to an extend the translucent core and there is no visible gradient in the final result. However, I still like the the red tinted petals, but for sure need to do some more experimenting with the different types translucent clay.Image

I still cannot get rid of the flakes in the translucent clay. But the defect turned into frosty effect and I am pleased with how these turned out. I practically put all left-overs from the cane together in a sheet and cut circles out of it:

Positively I am getting better with sanding and buffing, but the round pieces needed something else to give them a finished look, so I made these little wire swirls (the first pair is only with sterling silver, while the swirls for the last one are from copper with silver coating and the hooks are ready made sterling silver). I liked the behavior of the wires and the combination with polymer clay, so I am definitely continue exploring the theme.
