What could be better than a ninja with his own club? Have the ninja be the DJ!

Club DJ Ninja

As presents I like to make homemade gifts, and coming from me it’s almost always ninja related. I may have outdone myself. John fancies himself a DJ so what better to make for him?  Fully outfitted with the worlds largest disco ball, and an audience of one, which happens to be Herbert, and wall art this is the club to be at! And really I couldn’t have a DJ with out his own club to play.

  It started with the DJ himself, and you really cant have a DJ without the equipment right? A quick trip to the dollhouse section of Hobby lobby helped me find everything I couldn’t make out of clay. Who knew dollhouses were ninjasized?

DJ Ninja

I made the speakers with silver laid over black polymer clay and painted on all the crosshatching.I think that was the tiniest paintbrush I had ever seen. I found a tiny table and painted it black to match the clay top for the deck. I used pieces of floral craft wire to make the needles and attach the records to the deck. These babies even spin!! And what DJ would be ready for his night as the life of the party with out his headphones? All it takes is black craft wire positioned underneath the clay ear pieces  before you bake ‘em.

Happy Birthday!

How can you not have an awesome birthday after you get your own Ninja?

Yea Yea, I know… Almost a year… What the frig! I’ll be the first to admit I have needed to update for a long time, and as crafty as I am with clay, websites are not my forte’. But, fear not, the ninja making has not stopped and I can’t hide behind lack of knowledge any longer. I must share my Ninjaberries with you! Lets face it, there just too much awesomeness not to share.  And I have at last sold my first ninja!!

My first sale!!

 I know, she’s blurry.. apparently I’m not a photographer either. I am beyond proud to say she now has an awesome life striking fear into innocent bystanders. She was a special order and grenade was a request, and really how can I say no to a little weaponry?

I do, believe it or not, have a shop on etsy. Unfortunately it is currently empty. That will all be changing very soon. I now have an awesome art station in which to craft lots of ninjas to over take the world… But, that’s another post.

Do you ever feel like you need somebody to look out for you? Somebody who has your back no matter what, and isn’t afraid to be the muscle to scare away the meanies?

Herbert and Frank

Herbert and Frank

This is Herbert and Frank, my team of Ninja enforcers. Frank is currently on assignment in John’s office, since he is ready with the nunchucks to put people back in their places.  I still have Herbert, I just can’t bring myself to part with my fearless defender.

Who only uses one medium for their art these days? Not me!! These little guys are my first successful attempt to make my ninjas from Polymer clay, and I am very proud of them. They are sure to be the first of many, I love to make them just so I can give them to people and see how they can kick ass and bring joy to those who keep them.
