Creative Artiste's Mixed Media Challenge #70

Hello Creative Friends, 

It's the first Friday of a new month so time for me 
our theme is always *Anything Mixed Media Goes* 

This month i'm sharing a hand sculpted clay pot 
I call her *My Year in Dungaree's* 😊

Behind the scene's i've been working with lots of clay this year. 
Thought i'd share this piece inspired by Toni Burt. One piece of 
air dry clay sculpted into shape it was important to make it's 
shape as organic as I could to resemble my worn out dungaree's. 

Adding stumpy feet to the base, mark making seams and creases
she was left to dry for days before sealing and painting.

The blues in this treasured napkin gifted to me by my friend Dorthe 
really complimented it's design. Sealed again with matt gel medium 
she was ready for some extra embellishing.  

Lined with gilding flakes she wears TH hardware 
and a fashioned Jeans button crafted from clay..

I'm not sure if this little video will work but 
if it does it will give you a 360 view and show 
areas hard to photograph like her saggy bottom πŸ˜‚

Filled with treats she's a good craft table companion. 

If you like to mix up you media why not share your creations 
with the Creative Design Team HERE and join in with our 

Look forward to seeing your Mixed Media Makes.. 

Stay safe & Creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

How fabulous Tracey! I love how you've recreated your saggy bottomed worn out dungarees. The stitching details, creases and button are amazingly realistic.

This is terrific. I had no idea you could make a bowl like this without firing. The napkin pattern added looks great and I could see the gilding clearly inside when I watched the video. What fun to make it look like your dungarees.
Thanks very much for your recent heart-warming comment on Orange E.
Love from Sheila

A happy table companion indeed! I love the shape you made, and the delicate flowers. The added details finish perfectly the project.

Oh Tracey this is fabulous, from her saggy bottom to her little stumpy feet lol. She's a piece of clay that now has her very own character, and the napkin from Dorthe fits in perfectly! To be fair, being filled with chocolate is never a bad thing either! Take care and a very happy Easter to you and yours xx

Your little clay jeans pot is out of this world. Just perfect for foil wrapped eggs. You sculpted this SO well and the colors were perfect, too. I'm totally in awe. Clever beyond words, Tracey.

Mac Mable said...

Yes I can totally empathise with a year in dungaree's....Lol x. What a fabulous, unique and fun project. The little video did work and there was no evidence of the 'saggy bottom'. Thank you for the step by steps and what a beautiful treasured napkin x. Great table companion and thank you for the fun post Tracey x.

OMG Tracey I am gobsmacked looking at this most amazing little clay pot you have here. So glad you showed us that wee video. Haven't heard the word dungarees for such a long time. Got to be a British word. Such amazing detail everywhere in and out. I am hungry just licking my lips over those eggs. So very glad you are part of our Team so I get to see your talents. Hugs. Stay Safe.

Redanne said...

Oh my goodness, what a delightful project Tracey. You have achieved such a realistic denim look to the 'dungarees', the little dumpy feet are adorable. Love this project. Apologies for my lateness. Keep safe and well my friend. Hugs, Anne xxx

Oh Tracey, if anyone could ever make clay be denim, you've done it! LOVE this, and the napkin was brilliant. The shape is so cute and so are its lil feet. Brava! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Love to Craft Challenge. We hope you continue to play with us! XOXO, Aimeslee LTCCB DT
