another victim of polymer clay
you know... i've seen threads in here with 'polymer clay' in the title but didn't usually open them. i made the mistake of looking at the michael's flyer and noticed that it was on sale this week so i started a google image search ... just to see what it was all about. then i did a search in here to read about how you were using it.
i'm HOOKED. i bought some yesterday and played around with it last night and it's fun!!!! i couldn't understand what it was about it that i was enjoying so much but then realized that making stained glass mosaics isn't much of a tactile experience. i mean, i touch the shards but you can't exactly roll them around in your hands - not without getting cut anyway! and the results - i LOVE that this doesn't really shrink when it bakes. i guess that was part of why i wasn't interested - i pictured everything i made shrinking and cracking etc.
ughhhh... one more addiction. i have only a couple of really small experiments so far and want to do something a little larger this weekend.
i've seen some good tutorials online but usually like a reference book or two lying around. anyone have any recommendations?
