Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Polymer Clay Matchbox Art

I love Matchbox Art ~ I created the first matchbox for a friend.  I used terra cotta polymer clay and stamped it with a swirl design.  I created a rolled edge for the top of the matchbox and added a copper flower and pull to compliment the design.  The top pulls open and displays a full set of matches.  It was such a fun piece to create.

This green and gold polymer clay matchbox was one of the first  I ever designed.  I used Gold Leaf on the heart to give the matchbox a bit of glam.

I created this matchbox for my Etsy Shop which was recently purchased .  
As you can see I am getting it ready to mail to my customer.  
I embossed a small piece of card stock with a pretty little bird scene and 
included matches to fill up the box.

Last of all I created this matchbox to add to my Etsy Store.  I decided to do 
this with black polymer clay and added silver accent pieces.   

I embossed silver card stock for the inside of the box with circles
 resembling bubbles from the sea.

Thank you for visiting my blog

These are all very lovely. I have yet to try covering anything with clay. It is on my to-do list!

Roberta ~ once you start you won't be able to stop. Covering things with clay is so addicting. You will have to do a show and tell once you get to it on your to-do list.

Matchboxes are so fun to work with Trina ~ I especially love making the inside pop as much as the outside.
