high5 polymer clay: grant diffendaffer’s polymer clay ray guns

You have to love the guy.  If not for his beads (his book is in the sidebar – Polymer Clay Beads: Techniques, Projects, Inspiration), then surely for these polymer clay ray guns.  We’ve seen Diffendaffer’s unique, lathe-turned polymer clay beads before – now he’s turning polymer clay on a lathe to make toy ray gun sculptures. Think of the possibilities. These beauties are currently part of the Fuller Craft Museum exhibit Sculpting Color: Works in Polymer Clay.

They are created from polymer clay, with a minimal wood and steel armature. The barrels are turned on a lathe, much like ceramics are turned on a wheel. The hand sculpted bodies feature lathe turned adornments and labels that are handmade with a photo exposure process. Grant Diffendaffer

  1. This is toooo funny! Leave it to a guy to make ray guns out of polymer clay. >.< (Heh, my 17 y/o son loves them, btw.) But I have to admit, Grant is a true master of his medium. Well done Grant!

    I’m heading down to the Fuller Craft Museum next month… I’m looking forward to seeing the real ones.

    Thanks, Susan, for a terrific run of polymer posts! Very inspirational!
