Polymer clay opened up the world of the third dimension to me, allowing my subject matter to lift itself off of the flat surface it normally resides on. I tried many brands of this clay and found Sculpey to be my favorite. I learned to combine the colors with each other in order to make the subtle changes I was looking for in my relief paintings. Super Sculpey (beige) is easy to work with and provides a wonderful flesh tone. Mutes the brightness of other Sculpey colors and increases the pliability of the medium. Commissions welcomed.
Self portrait relief.... in progress
Here is a portion of a self portrait that will be a combination of polymer clay( shown here), collage and mosaic work.
