I have been bitten by the CLAY BUG. Beads just fascinate me. I know a few of you dabble in it - what do you make ? How did you learn ? Are there books out there ? There's a ton of tutorials online .... call me old fashioned - but if I'm learning something - I want to see a Book. LOL
Maybe I can combine some of my scrap glass with clay to make something brand new ! Who knows ...this might just be the next million dollar idea ~~ LOL (fat chance ) Tell me all you do with clay !! ( Please ??? )

Here you go we have a forum for it. It is a lovely hobby. I tried and finally gave all my supplies away. (I just did that with most of my rubber stamps too) Anyway. They are pretty clever over at this forum. Hope it helps!!

BEADS! I don't do sculpey, but if I did, that's what I would make:)

What about some pendants? With the glass & clay?

I took the punge and got a bunch of clay and powders , a pasta machine - and all sorts of doo-dads to make stuff with . I'm thinking jewelry ,beads and pendants. THanks for the site - I didn't know there was such a thing ! I'll be sure to go there :)

Here is my first attempt at sculpture and at super sculpey.

I tried to keep it simple.

I don't do a lot with Sculpey, but occasionally I'll use some to make something. This is something I did a couple of years ago, a little altoids tin/sea turtle shrine. The top was made with paper clay, but all the little pieces are Sculpey.

I think the post about it is still around, if you want to read more about it.
