Hi all! I've spent nearly two years reading and participating in forums on GW and finally got here! I've played with almost all forms of arts, including ceramics, but that was many years ago. Like anything else I get burned out doing one thing all the time. I've been doing some reading on this polymer clay that requires baking in oven rather than a kiln. I've been to Google searching for a "How To" website to find out the particulars before investing in a new media. Guess I'm not lookng in the right place. I have some ideas that would work great, I think, with this type of clay. Anyone out there who will give me opinions, advice, information, etc. would be most appreciated. Instructions that I have so far read are assuming I know what I'm doing and I don't! TIA Pat

hello all!! have been spending time in Garden Junk and never realized till now that there was a clay/ceramics spot...YAHOOO!!! This is my first post...hope to participate frequently....tried to link my website but then read that businesses cannot do that. I am a clay handbuilder from Wilkes-Barre, PA. I work in both earthenware and stoneware and am fortunate to have my studio in an arts community housed in an old mansion....hope to share ideas with everyone!
