This month’s challenge was special in many ways. First it was the PCAGOE Monthly Challenge’s 1 year anniversary!! Plus we had a record number of entries (43) and a record number of votes (240). The voting was probably the closest it’s ever been with only 3 votes separating 1st, 2nd and 3rd and honorable mention. There were also 5 more entries tied with 1 vote less than the honorable mentions! We had a lot of diversity this month in terms of inspiration and technique. If you have never seen what polymer clay could do, you got a big eye opener this month. From jewelry to home decor to figurines& scultputers to wall art, this challenge saw it all! Thanks so much to everyone who participated! Now on to the winners…. First Place went to Looking for Some Romance by naamaza.etsy.com!!!!!
Here is her description of her very sweet piece: “Meet Joe, a hopelessly romantic guy looking for some love to light him up.
Joe is sculpted of a refurbished lightbulb.” Congratulations Naama!!
Here’s how she describes the technique used for this piece: “Muted colors, shades of lavender and taupe are layered over black polymer clay and detailed in gold ink and gold metallic flakes.” This piece is still available for purchase! Congrats!
3rd Place went to Rafael’s Valentine by Naftali.etsy.com
Here’s Janice’s description of her inspiration for this piece: “The theme was love. Sometimes, when you get that fuzzy feeling of love, your head hits the clouds. If Raphael was alive today, and he worked in polymer clay, yup, this is what it woulda looked like. I’ve convinced . . . totally.” This bead has already been sold (not a big surprise), but she has many more lovelies avaiable in her shop! Congrats!
As I said earlier, the the voting was very close and we had a 5 way tie for honorable mention. Here they all are in no particular order:
Congratulations to all the PCAGOE Winners! Now for the Voter winner!! Congratulations to Damene for winning this great prize package created and donated by PCAGOE members!
Thanks again to everyone who participated and voted!! We’ll see you again next month!!
