Divine Nature Series: Animal Eyes

Hi guys!
I decided that I might entertain you a little bit with smaller or bigger collections of amazing photo-proof that our Planet and everything that we can touch is not just an accident. I won't debate with anyone, but I would like to show everyone that something like this, something so beautiful, could have not been created just like that. Let's not speak about God or Religion. Let's just appreciate the fact that this is far beyond anything that a human being can make. So there definitely is something or someone, who is the best ever artist of all times, spaces and places!
Go through these pictures, indulge your eye and imagination, listen to what your heart says! 





Thank you so much for reading this! 
Lots of love,

Feather T-shirt Design by Mandarin Duck

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I went to the shops to buy some plain T-shirts and today I spent some lovely sunny hours next to my window in the studio making custom design for my T-shirt! 
God I love doing this! This is so satisfying, this is so wonderful and fun!
I would like to share some process pictures along with some lovely shots of me and the ready product. I hope you will like it :) Let me know what you think?!
Do you think guys I should make these for living? I mean... would you ever consider buying clothes with my designs or do you think someone else could? I mean... I know I am polymer clay artist, but I am an artist first, then comes the medium. So let me know, OK? 




And here is some work in progress. I started with outlines, then filled in the main colour and then added up shadows and them highlights by that special BLEACHING TECHNIQUE I showed you in the T-shirt video before!

So let me know if you would like to own a T-shirt of your own with designs like this or something different! 
Thank you for reading,

Giraffe Journal "Mother's Love" by Aniko Kolesnikova (Mandarin Duck)





Hello everyone :) 
Today I would like to present you my newest journal "Mother's Love". This journal was a commission work for an the International Giraffe Conservation Organisation. They contacted me recently and offered to participate in their yearly auction with my art. The money we would raise by this auction will go towards the charity to save Giraffes all over the world. I loved this idea and decided to make a little A6 journal with a baby and mother giraffe in a very sweet loving pose. Giraffes can't hold hands, can't they!? 
I also made a PDF tutorial out of it (took some pictures of the whole project for now, but will edit it soon for you to enjoy practicing making giraffes!). I thought it's a striking design and many of you will want to try and create similar designs. Who doesn't love giraffes? :) They are so sweet!
So here are the photos and wait for a bit, I will release a PDF soon too :) 


 Thanks for visiting and reading, 
Have a great day!

"Curious Froggy". Polymer Clay Jewelry Box.

Hello my sweet honey bunnies!

Days are going hotter and summer is here for sure! This made me very happy when I received this custom order. I was contacted by a wonderful woman who is a mother of a 15 years old girl.
She said that her daughter loves frogs and nature and she requires a jewellery box to be made for her with some sort of important saying. I asked her if there is anything she as a mother want's to tell her. She told me that there is a funny but wise phrase they two have and it sounds like: "Don't kiss without love!". I don't think I need to explain what that means. As a mother she tries to let her daughter how precious real family relationship should be.
But enough of that theory, enjoy the box! :) Find more pictures HERE.
