You kow how 'after' x-mas... all the kits of make-up went on sale?  The
eye-shadows.... why didn't I think of getting one of the big palette's of
eye-shadow to use on polymer clay?   Boo who
I looked at them and they had bright blues and greens and so on,  yuck!! They
would have been perfect for the clay.    :-(  
Guess my mind was out to lunch.     Until next year.............

Those of you who use eye shadow on clay... what all do you do with it?
This is something I haven't experimented with yet.  (Too busy trying to
perfect a million other techniques!)  Should it be applied to raw clay?
And what method of application is best (brush, finger, etc.)?  I'm really
curious to hear what everyone does with it.  Maybe I'll be inspired!
Thanks!

Hi Sammie, how's it in Mississippi?

I use blush on raw clay for my angels I dab a little on their toes and
fingers too.  I use Cernit flesh color and it really looks nice. .  I
also get a great look by applying blue or purple eye shadow on the tips
of my flower pedals.  By putting it on raw clay it tends to bake in.

*SMOOCH* You're wonderful]

I don't wear makeup (other than lipstick when I notice myself bitting my
lip (out of consternation *sigh*)) but I buy it by the gobs.  I'm such a
sucker for nifty looking colors, and the "multi-color kits" forget it]
it's in the cart the moment my hubby blinks his eyes (so he can't see me
putting it there, and by the time he DOES see it, it's too late, at the
register)

SO..  I've been amassing all these things that I never use, but couldn't
figure out why I had the compulsion to get.  You just made it all better
<very BIG grin> for my clay]]  =)

I have about 16 bazillion things I should be doing when I get home, but
I'm heading straight for the makeup drawer, then to the clay.  WOO]

         Blush and eyeshadow, things that have a powder base, work really
well with the clay.  Put it on the raw clay and bake.  No need to seal
after that, unless you want a shine.  However, you can buff up the
surface with a soft towel if you want a light sheen, and the blush or
eyeshadow should stay on okay.  Wonderful for sculpted dolls, as well as
caned faces when you forget to add the cheeks (like I once did.)

Hi Sam!

Since I do a lot of figures and a LOT of faces, I use the make up for
... Make up! I use it to brighten a Santa's nose, or add some depth to
a fairy's eyes.. some blush to her cheek, etc. I use a very very very
soft puffy brush that is about the size of a q-tip to apply it in very
light amounts. I then keep up the process with VERY little of the
color on the brush until it has the depth I want.

Good Luck!
Tommie

LOL!  Tommie, I'm thinking of your recent tale of the ceramic store and you
fulfilling your lust for the tools... I've substituted make-up for tools
and Belk's for ceramic store!  I can just picture your bus madly careening
across town to get to the Revlon sale for your favorite blush!

Still LOL,
Irene

This is off the subjec,t but it reminded me of something hubby made up the
other day... we were watching old Star Trek on TV and there was a Revlon
commercial... he turned to me and made the Vulcan greeting with his hand in a
V, ya know? Then he said--are you ready for this?-----"Revlon and prosper!"  If
you don't know Trek, you may not "get it," but for all you pc folks who use
makeup in your art, this can be your new greeting LOL

They say human cloning is something that just might happen within the next
decade.  But I always suspected it was happening all along (shades of the
X-files?).  Well, it seems that because of some twisted, covered-up
government experiments.... there are several clones of my husband running
around and you married one!!!!

LOL!

Eye shadow and blush can be used in the same ways you'd use Pearlex
for surface tinting.  Also, you can wet it and brush it on for lips on
a doll, for instance.

... And don't forget you can use artist's soft pastel. You can buy these
in sets or individually from art shops in the most enormous range of
artists' colours (not restricted to make-up colours). Just rub the
pastel onto a piece of paper and use a soft paintbrush to scoop up the
powder and brush onto the clay - lovely stuff!

Sue, I thought of you book on the way home from work today and how your
method of uo using pastels rather than make-up would work better.  Are
you using the pastels that have a small amount of oil in them, or just
the chaulky kind?

The color potential would be wonderful.  Wouldn't it also be much
cheaper that eye shadow and last longer?

This way Tommie can avoid chasing after Revlon sales!
