This is what she has to say about herself
I have been drawing since i was a little girl - the smell of new paper and pencils for school was always exciting. I did a Diploma in Art where I caught the illustration bug.
The drama and contrast of Black and White has always been a focus of mine.
So now I make big beautiful pictures and turn them into gorgeous little cards.

Winner of Most Active Member of the week 11/15/14

Today I want to feature the winner of the Most Active Member of the Week. It is Don Bauman of Don  makes beautiful woodcrafted items . Check out their shop.

This is from Don's about page.
I was introduced to the lathe and tried my hand at a few wine bottle stoppers and was hooked. I started making pens and things progressed from there. I find turning beautiful wood relaxing and creative.

The first step in crafting quality wood goods is choosing the material. I craft my products from beautiful wood from all over the world which makes it interesting. Every piece is one-of-a-kind. I use different finishes such as the CA finish, friction polish or oil finish.
I use attractive and durable hardware in stainless steel, antique brass, rose gold, gun metal, and chrome.Posted by Barbra Alan at 3:43 AM No comments:

Learn how to make this!!!!


1. Cut the wire approx. 7-8 cm

2. Form little eyelet

3 Take a piece of Cold Porcelain , and color it with oil paint. Dont take too much color as after porcelain dries, the color gets more intense so be careful

4 Now we are going to make the inner part of the flower
Take small ball of the porcelain , add some glue to the wire and put the ball onto the wire ( eyelet) , form a little teardrop with your fingers like it is shown on the pic 5
6,7 Cut the teardrop into 4 parts . Repeat with all the wires and let them dry
8 Now take a bigger ball of the violet color - this will be a flower
9 Form a teardrop

10 Cut it into 4 parts

11 Look at the picture and roll from side to side , the stick on the porcelain so it can form a petal , Do it with all 4 parts ( petals)

12 Use another ( round) side of the stick and easily force in each petal so it can look like a real syringa petal
13 this should be your result)

14 Put the wire with yellow part into the lilac flower ( add some glue)

15 Press it into the flower and form the flower with the help of your fingers.

Thus, made all the flowers and let them dry

How to make Polimer clay and cold porcelain syringa!

Hi everyone
As you already know ( I hope you do lol) I make flowers from polimer clay and cold porcelain syringa. It is a very interesting material that helps to create realistic flowers and it inspires me every day for something new and exciting to make.
One day I decided - why not to share some my knowledge with you my dear friends of TEAMUNITY :) and I want to prepare a pictured lesson for you of how to make a syringa brooch.
Hair fascinator looks like this

Maybe some of you will like the technique , the material and will try to make it yourself!

So, all we need to make it is the following

Cold porcelain ( I use modern clay, or thai clay)
tape ( here in Russia I buy it in a florists shops)
taped wire ( 28-30 size)
glue PVA
3 tones of oil paint- magenta ( purple or violet), yellow and green
2 clean brushes ( forgot to picture them, just use ordinary synthetic brushes you kids may use for painting)
brooch base
patience and time))

tomorrow I will give pictured lesson about syringa brooch
