Mosaic Letter “E”

One of my sisters-in-law asked me to make a New Orleans’ themed letter “E” for her boss.  He loves New Orleans, so I pulled together the brightest pieces I could find and went to work.  I made the leaves and crab from polymer clay.  I found the metal Mardi Gras mask at Goodwill and the jazz singer at a locat antique store.  

 

 

 

 

 

Penquin

My husband loves penquins so I made one.  I used black and white china, buttons, black beads and I made the bow from polymer clay.  After I paint the clay pieces, I put a coat of clear, finger nail polish on top to make it shine.  Then I spray the entire piece with clear gloss. 

Ta-Da – black and white penquin with shine.


Shiny red polymer clay bow…

Buttons and black beads.
