As it’s spring time I thought it was about time I dug out my stash of polymer clay again and had a little play, it’s been a while!
I think this is the best time of year to make things with Polymer Clay, I know people make things with it all year round, but personally I find in Winter the clay is far too cold and takes forever to condition and soften and in Summer it’s too warm and the clay becomes too soft and sticky. Spring offers a happy medium, for me anyway!
You have to understand most of what I made today was totally experimental, I was limited with the colours I have left, mainly white and a few odd bits of other colours. I managed to make some blue and white flowers and the rest I made into pendants, adding patterns and words with some acrylic stamps.
Here they are fresh from the oven!
Once they had cooled some of the pendants looked far too plain so I decided to try using some acrylic paint, first applying the paint with a paint brush, but I found applying it with my fingers was far better and more fun!
I have to be honest and say I think some of the pendants turned out better than others. I certainly like the pendants with words on and my head is already buzzing with more ideas for these.
And this is what I made with the flowers.
Note to self, I must buy more clay, lol!
Bye for now.
