Prva domača naloga je narejena

Se še spomnite tele  moje objave ... v njej sem vam povedala, da sem postala članica Design tima za Polymer clay TV

Kmalu po dogovoru sem na dom dobila paket poln njihovih  pripomočkov...


...moja naloga pa je, da vsak mesec naredim 2 izdelka za inspiracijo iz v naprej določenih pripomočkov...in evo...za mesec avgust je nastalo tole:

1:) knjižno kazalo





...uporabila sem pa pripomočke na sliki spodaj...



Pozitivno presenetil me je kalup, ki je odporen na vročino in sem črke lahko kar z Kato Liquid nardila ;-)

2.) broška

...za katero sem dobila idejo, ko sem videla tole tukaj...



...uporabila pa sem spodnje stvari...

Polymer & ... / 2

Teden mi je žal padel mimo...upam, da bo ta teden šel malo bolj počasi :P
Sorry this week has past so fast ... I hope that this week will go a little more slowly: P

Kot sem že napiasala, govorim o materialih ki jih lahko uporabljate z polymerom ... taki, vsestransko uporabni so tudi alkoholni inki.
As I wrote, I'm talking about materials that can be used with polymer ... such versatile ones are alcohol inks.

Lahko jih uporabite na surovem polymeru...
You can use them on raw polymer ...

Efekt zvezdne površine ...The star surface effect


Relief na razpokah ... Relief on crackles


Imitacija porcelana in Imitacija razbitega stekla ... Porcelain imitation and Broken glass technique


...ali pa jih uporabimo že na pečenem polymeru in s tem dobite meni tako ljub disstres look.
... or use them on already baked polymer...this way you get for me so typical distressed look.


Kato discs

Poly-gosenica ... Poly-caterpillar


Na netu boste našli še ogromno drugih načinov kombiniranja polymera in Alkoholnih inkov:
On net you can find a lot of other ways of combining polymer and alcohol inks:

Polymer & ... / 1

Pa je tukaj nov mesec...in z njim nova tema meseca: Polymer & ...
Here is a new month ... and with it a new topic of this month: Polymer & ...

V mesecu juniju bom malo več pisala o možnostih in materialih, ki se jih lahko uporablja pri ustvarjanju z polymer clayem.
In June I'll write a bit more about some materials and the possibilities that we can use in creating with polymer clay.

Načeloma lahko z polymerom uporabljamo vse materiale, ki zdržijo temperaturo pečenja...nekaj pa je materialov in načinov, ki se jih lahko uporablja tudi po pečenju.
In principle, we can with polymer use all materials that withstand a baking temperature ... but also some of the materials that can be used after baking.

Eden takih in na mojih izdelkih največkrat uporabljenih dodatkov je oljna barva, saj z njo svoje izdelke patiniram.
One of these and one of most used on my products is oil paint.

Ponavadi barvo razrečim z oljem da je ravno prav mazava in jo nanesem z staro zobno ščetko (ali trdim čopičem) da jo potisnem v vse reže in s tem izdelku povdarim teksturo. Odvečno barvo pobrišem z mehko krpo (včasih tudi papirnato brisačo) in izdelek osušim v pečici...če mi tekstura izdelka dopušča, suh izdelek še narahlo pobrusim z srednje grobim papirjem.
Usually I dilute a paint with oil to be just right spreadable and then applied with an old toothbrush (or stiff paintbrush) to go into all the slots and emphasize the texture. Excess paint I wipe off with a soft cloth or with paper towel.
I bake polymer again to dry the remain paint ... if the texture of the product allow I also slightly sand with medium coarse sandpaper.



...kaj zmore malo oljne barve, je tukaj več kot očitno...... the change you can do with a little bit of oil paint ...


Na sliki je magnet/vazica narejena iz prazne žarnice oblečene v polymer. Močan magnet je skrit v rdečem polymer krogu, ki je z žico pritrjen na žarnico.
On photo is magnet / Vase made from discharged and with polymer coated light bulb. Strong magnet is in this red circle attached with wire on the bulb.
This was a project made for tutorial in Slovenian magazine in 2011.

Ustvarjalni navdih / 10



...in kadar se vame prikrade kak dvom ... imam njo in ostale Prčkarke, ki me znajo "zbrcati" na tisti pravi način. 
... and when did sneaks a doubt in me ... I have Her and other Prčkarke who knows how to "kick me" in the right way.

Ustvarjalni navdih / 9

Name zelo spodbujajoče in ustvarjalno vpliva tudi iskrena pohvala in konstruktivna kritika...vendar se zavedam kje živim in zato vem, da le redki Slovenci premorejo dati čista pristna čustva.
Very stimulating for me and gives me a great creative impact is sincere praise or constructive criticism of my work.
But because I'm aware where I live I know that very few Slovenes are able to share pure feelings.


Igranje z ostanki...zelo spominjajo na Jana R. Benzon tehniko / Playing with the left overs...this is very reminiscent of Jan Roberts Benzon's technique


Zato toliko bolj pogosto naletim na tipično značilnost Slovenceljnov... na kvazi dobre človečkice, ki so jih polna usta leporečja in se jim iz ust zliva en sam cuker...
... seveda samo dokler jim ne obrneš hrbta.
Therefore, I more often run into on average Slovenian women with typical characteristic ... on quasi sweet woman with mouth full of beautiful sugary words...
... only as long as you look at them, as long as you don't turned around...

...ko pa jim... ko se za tvojim hrbtom pokaže njihov pravi jaz...se iz njihovih gobcev zlije vsa zloba...in ta ima vedno osnovo v čisti nevoščljivost.
... when you do ... behind your back they show their true self ... from their muzzle come out just malice ... which always has a base in pure envy.


 Igranje z ostanki...zelo spominjajo na Jana R. Benzon tehniko / Playing with the left overs...this is very reminiscent of Jan Roberts Benzon's technique


...nevoščljivost teh stvorov v meni sproži trmo, željo da jim pokažem boga in pol... in ta želja je moja najmočnejša ustvarjalna muza.
...envy from those creatures triggers in me stubbornness and the desire to prove them wrong... and this kind of desire is my the most productive creative muse.


 Igranje z ostanki...zelo spominjajo na Jana R. Benzon tehniko / Playing with the left overs...this is very reminiscent of Jan Roberts Benzon's technique


Torej...vsi vi, ki imate tako veliko slabega za povedat o meni...  moja pot je sicer težja, vendar sem jaz močnejša...zaradi vsega sem ponosna na to kar sem... ponosna sem nase!
Hvala vam za vašo zavist!

So...all of you who have so much bad to say about me ... you made my path harder... but that made me stronger and I'm proud what I am ... I'm proud of myself !
Thank you for your envy!

Ustvarjalni navdih / 8

Oblika lahko nastane tudi iz prilagajanja.
The form may also be formed from the adjustment.

Prilagajanje včasih pomeni tudi to, da si vzameš čas in si dovoliš delati tisto kar hočeš.
Adjustment sometimes also means that you take the time and let yourself  do what you want to.

Moj teden je minil ob kvački...naredila sem si "pončo" iz ostankov sivih odtrnkov ;-)
So my week passed with crochet hook in my hand ... I made a "poncho" for myself in various of shades of gray ;-)



Končno pa sem tudi dokončala še eno osnovo iz D. Cormierove marčevske delavnice ;-)
Finally, I also completed another base from D. Cormier workshop ;-)


Na tej broški sem uporabila njegov Long moth Die set, vendar sem obliko deformirala / prilagodila in ustvarila broško zakrivljenih listov.
On this brooch I used his Long moth Die set, but I adjust the shape and created a brooch with curved leaves.

Ustvarjalni navdih / 7

Eden od močnih inpulzov, ki spodbudi moj ustvarjalni navdih je tudi oblika.
One of the strongest impulses that stimulate my creative inspiration is also a form.

Zadnje čase se izogibam ravnim ploskvam ... sploh ploskvam izrezanim z cutterji ali die seti.
For some time I avoid flat surfaces ... like are simple surfaces cut-out with cutters or die sets.



Veliko bolj so mi zanimive oblike, ki so organske in imajo tudi dimenzijo v višino...niso popolne 3D oblike, ampak so na nek način napihnjene ploskve. Polžje broške so primer ene take organske oblike, ki me zadnje čase spremlja ;-)
Much more interesting to me are the forms which are organic and have also dimension in height ... not the full 3D shape, but somehow inflated forms. Snail brooches are an example of one of such organic forms, which I recently made ;-)








Pa vam?
Kaj vam pomenijo oblike?
Imate svojo najljubšo?

And you?
What shapes mean to you?
Do you have your favorite shape?

Ustvarjalni navdih / 6

Načinov kako narediti teksturo je veliko...meni najljubše so narejene z uporabo predmetov, ki jih najdem povsod...doma narejeni kalupi in teksture narejene z uporabo različnih orodij.
It's a lot of ways how to make a texture on polymer clay ... my favorites are made with items which I find everywhere ... made with homemade molds and with using different tools.



Na trgu obstajajo res čudovite teksturne štempiljke, veliko je zanimivih kalupov in ostalih pripomočkov... ampak jih ne maram preveč, ker se z njihovo uporabo zmanjša unikatnost mojih izdelkov.
On the market there are really beautiful texture stamps... a lot of the interesting molds and other devices ... but I don't like them too much, because with their use uniqueness of my work is reduced.


Meni so še vedno najbolj ljube teksture in orodja, ki si jih naredim sama ... in z kombiniranjem mi je omogočeno, da jih vsakič naredim drugačne in unikatne.
I prefer to use the textures and tools that I can made them ... and with combining them I can do them every time a different and unique.


Na slikah je nakaj vsakodnevnih predmetov, ki se z malo kombiniranja hitro spremenijo v unikatne teksture ... ali teksturne ploskve za odtise ;-)
On photos are some everyday objects that with combine quickly become a unique textures each time  ... or texture sheet for imprint ;-)

Ustvarjalni navdih / 5

Razpoke me spremljajo pri skoraj vseh medijih s katerimi sem delala...torej je logično, da so bile ena prvih tehnik, ki sem jo skušala poustvarit v polymer clayu.
Cracks accompany me nearly in all media with which I was working ... so it was logical that they were one of my first techniques that I tried to recreate in polymer clay.




Od prvih nastalih razpok je že skoraj 10 let...pa še vedno jih imam rada, še vedno najdem način da jim dam malo drugačno podobo ;-)
From the first cracks is almost 10 years ... but I still love them, I still find a way to give them a little different look ;-)









Tokrat dopolnjujejo izgled imitacije lubja...in delajo družbo drevesnim škratom ;-)
This time they are part of faux bark ... this "Woodspirit" kinda type of pendant we will made on saturday workshop ;-)

Ustvarjalni navdih / 4


Kaj pa teksture?
What about textures?

Vam tudi teksture dajo ustvarjalni navdih?
Can they also give you creative inspiration?

Teksture so zame prav poseben izziv ... povsod jih vidim in so stalnica na mojih izdelkih ;-)
Textures are a special challenge for me ... I see them everywhere and are typical for my work ;-)

Ustvarjalni navdih /3

Pri zadnjem projektu mi je ostalo kar nekaj prelivov...ker delam z Katom (ki se ne izsušuje tako hitro) bi jih lahko pustila tudi v plahticah....ampak zloženi v bloke zavzamejo manj prostora ;-) 
With my last project I had left a few skinner blends ... because I'm working with Kato (which does not dry so quickly) I could left them in sheet form .... but stacked in blocks they take less space;-)



Kako vi shranite prelive?
How you save skinner blends?


Na tem linku je lušten pripomoček, ki vam pokaže kakšen bo izgledal preliv iz izbranih barv:
On this link is a cute gadget that shows you what it will look like skinner bland with selected colors:

Ustvarjalni navdih /2

Barve?
Colors?

Ste se kdaj vprašali v katerem delu barvnega kroga se gibljete?
Have you ever ask yourself in which part of the color wheel you are "moving"?

Kato polymer barvni krog z dodajanjem bele in črne
Kato polymer color circle by adding white and black


Katere barvne odtenke najpogosteje uporabljate?
Which colors you use most often?

Najpogosteje uporabljate monokromatski, analogni, komplimentarni ali triadni način kombiniranja barv?
Are you most commonly use a monochromatic, analogous, complementary or triadic way of combining colors?

...slika ni moja last, je sposojena iz neta...

Sploh zavestno razmišljate o izboru in kombinaciji barv?
Are you even consciously thinking about the selection and combination of colors?


No jaz nisem. 
Vse kar sem počela je baziralo samo na mojem instinktu...na občutkih všeč/ni mi všeč...in vedno sem se zatekala h barvnim kombinacijam, ki jih poznam...ki so blizu mojemu okusu.
Well, I didn't.
I did everything only with my instincts ... with feelings in princip: like / I don't like ... and I always resorted to the color combinations that I know well... and close to my taste.


Ker se tega zavedam in ker z vajo človek pridobi malo več občutka....sem se odločila da si naredim pripomoček...da si naredim "medizice" in tako dobim pečene primerke barvnih tonov Kato polymer claya.
As I am aware of this and because with exercise we get a little more color sensitivity .... I decided to make a tool... I do a "medusa" project to get baked instances of color tones Kato polymer Clay. 

Izdelava take meduze zahteva nekaj časa, vendar je preprosta... je le razširjena oblika Maggio Color Triangles načina...pri meni so zmešani vsi (na sliki zeleni) Kato polymeri po "Maggio principu".
Creating such a medusa require some time, but it is easy ...it is just expanded form Maggio Color Triangles way ... I'll mixed each color with (on picture is green) all Kato Polymer by "Maggio principle"

Ne domišlam si, da bom spremenila svoj okus...da bodo od sedaj v mojem nakitu zastopane vse barve...se bom pa definitivno z barvami začela ukvarjati iz drugega vidika.
I don't fooling myself that from now on my taste will change ... that from now on my jewelry will have all colors ... but I sure I'll definitely started working with colors from another perspective. 

Moram priznati, da mi je pa tole poigravanje z barvami dalo navdih...en kup novih ustvarjalnih idej
;-) 
However,I have to admit...this playing with colors give me inspiration...I get a bunch of new creative ideas;-)) 

Če se želite v barve še malo bolj poglobiti vam priporočam, da si ogledate blog Magi Maggio: http://maggiemaggio.com/color/ ;-)
I recommend you to look at Magi Maggio blog for further exploration in colors :




...iz ostankov barvnega kroga sem ponovila tudi naučeno iz D. Cormier Matrix delavnice...
...from the remains of the color wheel, I repeat what I learned in D. Cormier Matrix workshop ...


... bases in D.Cormier Matrix technic who are still waiting to be finish ...
