Polymer Clay Dish After Taking Kathleen Dustin’s Class

I have so many things that I have made over the years. This is one of my favorite pieces. I made this after taking Kathleen Dustin’s class. At the time I was busy at work and really didn’t continue to make many other things in this style. I love to make canes, but I think now that I have more time, I need to start experimenting again.

I drew that face on my computer in a paint program and applied it to the surface. I continued with what I learned with Kathleen. It you ever have the opportunity to take a class from Kathleen, do it, you will learn so much.,

What I might never be able to do is to sand it as much as it needs. Does anyone know if I can hire that done????

A couple of the canes that I used, actually came from a cane swap I did with I first started with PC. I love that about this kind of work. You can incorporate canes and each one can have a memory or special meaning. Kind of a scrap book of work that you and friends have done.

Most of us would like to make some money from our work, if for no other reason than to support our habit. But we can’t forget the pure enjoyment that we get from making that special piece that we won’t sell no matter what. This dish is one of those pieces for me.

    Thank you, James!

  • This is just wonderful! Is the face a transfer of the picture you drew or painted or clay?Kathleen’s website is at the top of my list for “inspirational viewing”. I never get tired of looking at her amazing creations.

    Thanks Patrice, it is a transfer of the picture I “painted” on the computer. Kathleen is a true artist.
    Great to have spoken to you the other day.

  • I love this!! You truly are gifted. As for sanding, Sarah’s all about the sanding, Julie seems to think it’s not that big a deal and Christi is totally against it. I say find the middle ground and the results Julie got with just a few minutes on a piece was astounding. I also like her idea of doing it at the sink under running water while gazing out the window at something lovely, with music on. Of course, in my case, it would require painting a mural on the window — my kitchen sink looks out at the neighbor’s always open garage!

    When I have to sand, I do it at the kitchen sink, but it’s almost never. Your neighbor would probably love a mural……but no sanding wins with me.
