during the insanity after the initial Covid shutdown was how I got into this Sculpey thang. My wife Michelle said she wanted a goofy little Garden Gnome with “Gnomasté” on it. See, we kept seeing a Gnomasté Gnome at a store in town, but every time we cobbled together the money to get it they were all sold out. So, Covid happened, I suddenly had lots of free time to do creative stuff, so off I went to the craft store to pick up some Sculpey. When I showed the finished product on my Facebook page I got around 15 orders for it, which meant now I had to figure out how to make molds and whatnot. And the rest is history. Funny thing is, I still haven’t gotten a Gnome for my wife – we keep selling out of them…these are all sold at the Booth, with a few also appearing in some of the garden statuary stores around the area here.
Here’s where it all started. He’s cast in Rapidset Cementall so he can sit outside in the rain and shine, and the Acrylic paint is sprayed with a protective fixative so it holds on to the colors.
After the first Gnome got made, I had to make a companion for him. Cast in Rapidset Cementall, painted in Acrylics with protective fixative.
Here’s Michigan J. Frog seated on a special mushroom. Popular little guy. Rapidset Cementall with Acrylics and protective fixative.
This little Snail has a Gnome hat and beard, hence the name. His shell gets painted various different colors depending on what paint is on hand. Rapidset Cementall with Acrylics and protective fixative.
And other designs will pop up from time to time. Wahoo!
As stated, I sell these at my 13th Floor Creations craft booth at various craft markets and events around the Portland, OR area and vicinity throughout the year. Check out the Recent Posts at the bottom of each page for details on where and when I’ll have the Booth set up, and I’ll also give a shoutout on my Instagram page (13thflrcreations) as well..
