I started playing around with Polymer Clay in
December, 2014 - first to try to make some
interesting beads I saw on Youtube
After making a few beads I got bored with
rolling round beads so decided to try to
learn to make other things, figures.
The Pack early on
This is a learning experience. And it's hard. If you decide to try this yourself start by using
Premo clay. It is harder a clay than Fimo or Sculpey clays and easier to make smooth beads or
figures. I started out with the softer clays and once I discovered Premo it became alot easier
to make things that are smoother. There are alot of Youtube tutorials to help along the way.
Joanne Fabrics sells Premo Accent (highly recommended). Do not buy Walmart's cheap
polymer clay, it's far too soft for begginers to work with. Also, you will need a wide variety
of tools, a pasta machine to condition the clay and a hard surface to work on. I bought a
$4.99 one foot square of Granite at Home Depot which works great. I expect this will be
a very long process util you learn tricks to make your pieces look professional. Mine do not,
but this was started as a form of entertainment and is challenge enough to keep my interest.

This is the 1st thing I made
This bracelet has some special meaning to me. The reason I startedworking with clay in the first plae was because I could not find a parrot charm to make a lady a bracelet who is a big parrot enthusiast in Canada. So I decided that I would try to making a charm myself out of polymer clay, though I never tried it. Obviously have become obsessed. I made all of the above to practice so I could make this tiny bird.
