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.

The Gate Keeper

The Gate Keeper is my newest Altered Paint Brush.  


Being a Gate Keeper is a very important job. It requires one to be on his toes every moment of every day.  If anyone other than the Gate Keeper opens the gate, it will most certainly open a pandoras box, the likes of which would send a shock wave across the country. This particular gate only has one key and it has been entrusted to Brisco Blaylock, aka The Gate Keeper!

I created Brisco using a paint brush as his core and fashioned him out of polymer clay. His hair is the brush which has been dipped in blue paint and dried in spikes. He is 7" tall and 3" wide and stands on his own.

LOVE The Gate Keeper! Love how you turned the paintbrush upside down and used it for his hair, very clever!

Such a fun and creative piece! Brisco's blue paintbrush hair is perfect.
