I have been trying to uncover the secrets to polymer clay and have come across some really great information online. I opened one of the packages of Studio by Sculpey clay last night. Oh, my gosh! It’s as smooth as buttah! It was soft and creamy compared to the other clays I’ve used… not a single crumble. Maybe because it’s fresh and hasn’t been sitting on a shelf for who-knows-how-long. The texture plates are flexible and transparent so you can see where you’re placing them. I wish I’d have discovered this stuff before I made my charms for the Valentine swap. I can see myself getting really into polymer. I have all these great ideas but I need to keep working because I’m still learning so much.
Take a look at this beautiful piece by Lisa Pavelka. Is it to die for or what? Look at this one, this one, and this one. If you didn’t know, I have amassed a small collection of coin purses so this speaks to me. Now take a look at this piece, equally as beautiful. I have some really cool vintage clocks that would be great with polymer patchwork all over them.
PS: My daughter sent me a text message last night: “Mom i just wantd 2 text u and say hi! I love u. Good nite!” I love you too, Amber.
