Tiny Polymer Clay Inchie Tiles
Have you ever heard of inchies? They are tiny, 1" square works of art that can be made out of any material. The only rule is that they must measure 1" square. They were originally made of paper but I also have some made of copper, bead embroidery, glass, ceramic and polymer clay. The tiles in this photo are some of the ones that I created from polymer clay.

They can be used in mosaic art, found object art, altered art, framed in groups, used to decorate a journal cover, box and so much more. They can be traded between artists. I personally have a collection traded with artists all over the world.

Interested in how to make the polymer clay inchies in this photo? Click here for a link to my tutorial www.etsy.com/listing/706003955…

Polymer Clay Inchie Tiles
I've been working on a tutorial on how to make polymer clay inchie tiles. Oh my gosh, this is taking some time! I've made over 150 little tiles (only 144 are shown here). I just finished editing all of the photos and next is typing up the step by step instructions. The photo of the tiles all together looks a little like a quilt doesn't it?

When finished, it will be posted in my Etsy shop. Here is a link to my shop www.etsy.com/shop/MandarinMoon

Polymer Clay Inchie Tile Texture Ideas
I just finished a tutorial on texture ideas for polymer clay inchies. I made well over 100 of them while creating the tutorial. Whew! You can find the tutorial here if interested www.etsy.com/listing/704019871…   I plan to create follow up tutorials that show how I add color with clay, paint, pigments and inks in upcoming tutorials and finish with ideas on how to use these little tiles.

Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Enamel Painted Goose Eggs
So I am trying my new experiment on goose eggs and I am really happy with them. I have to get better about applying the gold leaf but I like the multi layer wabi sabi look of them. :P

Enamel Painted Eggs
What do you think about these two cuties? They are hollow duck eggs painted with enamel and metallic paint, ink and gold leaf. Too messy? They are made by layering color over color and pattern over pattern. :)
