Deviant Art, Creativity, and Albert
PLACES TO GO FOR THINGS TO SEE:
On Deviant Art I found an artist who’s polymer clay work is unique. Chris Kapono lives in Missouri but has sold around the world, most recently to Russia. Take a look at her ATC and covered boxes. Devian Art isn’t often overly deviant but sometimes it is wonderful. Mandarinmoon’s work is an example of why I go there daily.
LIKES AND DISLIKES:
I love Christi’s generosity and the sharing spirit of the members of her Yahoo group. They share tutorials on how to duplicate their art. Christi Friesen has free downloads at her home site where you can learn to make, along with other tuts, a sleeping mouse and punkhearts. Then Sally Golubosky gave us wonderful directions on how to make her dragons and griffins. And Dolores who is Following Troll Tracks, shows some lovely mices. that combine felting and polymer clay.
What I don’t enjoy are people who don’t share because they feel that creativity is their possession and they themselves own nothing of their creativity to anyone ever.
