Tangle to Polymer

One of our regular commenters, "rev byrd" emailed us this gem. Here are her images and narrative about using a Zentangle as inspiration for a polymer clay creation.

I have been following your blog for some time now. I really enjoy it. I look forward to it every morning.

I have done a few (very few) Zentangles of my own and I did purchase your kit.

Anyway, recently I did a Zentangle and then translated it into polymer clay (my medium of choice). An on-line friend said I should send it to you, so here it is. No paint was used here, nor ink, just the colors of the clay the way I mixed them. Size of the clay Zentangle is around 9 by 11 inches.

You can view these and other Zentangle images at her Flickr site.

Thanks "rev byrd" for sharing that with us and everyone here.

Thank you all. And thanks to Rick and Maria for publishing it. I'm hoping to do a lot more Zentangles in clay. Both clay and Zentangles are soothing and meditative for lots of folks, so it just seemed a natural.

Hi revbyrd- I like you, love polymer clay and love this site and zentangles. Zentangles and clay seem a marriage made in heaven! Your work is beautiful and reminds me of the work of Heather at the purple door. How big is your piece and did you bake in one sitting or glue individually? What glue did you use? How did you get your clay pieces to sit perfectly flat? Sorry for all the questions but this is my type of work. Congratulations-cara
