Spring Bonnets and Eggs

eggshell ladies made with liquid polymer clay

I do enjoy decorating eggs with polymer clay. These blooming beauties were first blown free of their egg-y contents, then coated with several cured coats of liquid polymer clay.I drew the faces with a Micron permanent ink pen, colored them with acrylic paints and gathered the bits and pieces for their hats.

Then came the […]

Illustrator brushes and art

Free Illustrator lace brushes

I thought I’d lost the files from my Illustrator classes that I took at Front Range Community College, but I found quite a few and that includes the one with the brushes I created that allow me to “draw” lace onto lines. It may sound simple, but they took some doing; you start by building […]

We’ve got a couple of annual events that are happening right now–the miniature mask swap and the dyeing days.

New Beads and Beauties

All the activity at the Kay Carol and Priscila Gallery and Working Art Studio has been keeping me hopping like the proverbial Easter Bunny. So far this year (and its only just the end of March!) we’ve had the several featured artists, cleaned and painted the gallery in preparation for more, hosted musical events and […]

The year 2013 is coming to a close, as is the last semester in my degree program at Front Range Community College. My Media Graphic Design degree is within reach, and I have enjoyed all the art classes there so much that I’m going to continue to take a few here and there as I […]

Reconstructing the Past

This is a service-learning project in cooperation with classes in Metal/Jewelry, Women’s Sexuality and Women in US History, honoring 11 female elders in the Boulder County Community and was […]
