TUTORIAL: Polymer Christmas Octopus

octo1

I made my first clay octopus a few months back as an experiment, and I have been hooked on them ever since. They’re surprisingly easy to make, and they’re so much fun, what with their cute eyes and long, squiggly legs! I’ve made a few Christmas themed tutorials lately, but I wanted to create something…

I’ve been planning to create tons of Christmas tutorials, but as usual, December seems to have crept up on me and so I’m now snowed under (get it? muaha!) with lots of ideas I want to get through. I love Christmas, and even more so now that my little girl just about joins in with…

REVIEW: Nivea Creme

nivea3

Nivea Creme is one of those products that has been around for so long that most of us don’t even notice it on the shelves- it has very simple packaging and no catchy slogans- nothing to really catch our attention. But last Christmas my mother bought me a pot and I’ve been hooked ever since….

TUTORIAL: Baltinester Bros. Inspired Tricolour Cube Bracelet

cube8

I feel I should repeat myself every time I write a tutorial which has been inspired by someone else: I am not taking anything away from the original design or the company/artist. I never copy a design 100% and always prefer to put my own twist on it. I do not wish to “do better…

IMG_0475

One of my most vivid childhood memories is of my mum and I “sculpting” different shapes out of homemade dough which she would then store in the fridge for another day. The house would be filled with that salty scent and my hands would be ever so slightly stained with food colouring- but it was fun….

Anyone who has read any of my previous cosmetic reviews will know that I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. I went on a little spending spree on the weekend and among other bits and pieces, I saw this shampoo with its funky colours and chucked it in the basket. For £1.00 (Savers) you can’t really…

TUTORIAL: Scented Polymer Gingerbread Man Charm (Gingy from Shrek)

gingy

I’m not ashamed to admit that at the age of 19 I still love Shrek. It’s one of my childhood favourites, and I still quote the movies years on. I absolutely loved Gingy. Okay, I’ll admit that’s partly due to the fact that I used to love shouting “THE MUFFIN MAN? THE MUFFIN MAN!” over…

TUTORIAL: Polymer Shotgun (CoD inspired)

IMG_0592

As much as I love using clay, I’ve found that creating food and cute trinkets has become a little tiresome. I wanted to experiment with something different. Although I don’t get much time anymore, I love video games- especially Call of Duty. I haven’t seen many video game inspired creations around, so here’s something to celebrate the…
