Berry Crafty Guide { Mail Art }

I hope you enjoy the fourth crafty inspiration from the A Berry Crafty Guide series, this one discovering the versatility of Mail Art!

"Mail art—along with the synonymous terms Postal art and Correspondence art—refers to small-scale works that utilize the mail as a distribution system. These terms have also come to refer to related formats, including artist-designed “postage stamps,” postcards, and even impressions from rubber stamps." -- You can read tons more on their site about Mail Art and its history!

examples of my work:



Creating Mail Art:
There are many techniques you can use when creating mail art. You can use many styles of envelopes (or even DIY them!) as your base. There are also many techniques such as painting, drawing, stickers, collage, etc. to incorporate for mail art. Make sure your designs are secured before mailing so that nothing falls off! Below are some great introductory techniques and lots of amazing inspirations to get you started in beautifying your mail! Remember: you are only limited by your imagination!

Pintastical Pins - Part 14

Hi dolls! This month of Pintastical Pins is a piercing and tattoo inspiration set: earrings and tiny ear tattoos edition. Remember, getting tattoos and piercings is a big deal. Going to a reputable tattoo and piercing parlour is highly recommended, where your health and safety is taken into account. Make sure to do your research beforehand, and visit the places for further information. On that note, I can't wait to get my cartilage pierced again! P.S. Never, under any circumstances, get any piercing done with a gun (it is not safe for a number of reasons). Check out more stuff from my Pinterest here.

Berry Crafty Guide { Polymer Clay }


Behold the third instalment of A Berry Crafty Guide series featuring the wonderful and sculpting world of polymer clay!

As found on the Polymer Clay Superstore page:
"Polymer Clay is an art medium that is known for its versatility, pliability and simplicity to work with. It is an oven bake modeling material composed of polymers, resins, coloring agents and fillers. Not a natural clay, it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. It is used by artists and hobbyists ranging from children to professional artists and movie makers. It stays continually soft and can be baked in a home oven, retaining its color and size. It is available in many colors, including metallics, glow-in-the-dark and "stone". It can be used to simulate many materials: stone, semi-precious stones, porcelain, wood, and glass."

Creating Polymer Clay Sculptures:
There are many techniques when creating your designs from using brand sculpting tools to ordinary household objects like toothpicks, toothbrushes, foil paper and eye shadow (for shading pigments). You can integrate tiny beads and Translucent Liquid Sculpey (TLS) to bind pieces together or to create different textures. Below are some great beginner tutorials, supplies, techniques and frequently asked questions (FAQs) to get you started in this versatile world of sculpting! Remember: you are only limited by your imagination!
