3741  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / gemstones and other decorations with polyclay on: February 02, 2009 11:25:55 AM
so I was wondering...

my first polyclay project included the use of gemstones.  the instructions I was using said to place the gemstones in the clay, then bake.  I don't see this being a problem.  but here's where my question comes in...why do other projects using (for example) chatons tell you to press them into the clay, then pop them out before baking.  could something happen to the crystal?  or would it be safe?

argh im gonna have to skip this one cause I don't meet some of the requirements.  Why did I have to join so late? curseded me and being a lurker for ages!! Im assuming that this will is an ongoing thing and that there will be round 7? *crosses fingers*

there probably will be.  we can always start up the idea on the idea board since I might have to miss this one myself.

it goes VERY well with the colors of my room (and my craftster name, and my favorite birds).  I'd be glad to take it off your hands.   Wink

wow.  I have to decline joining a HP swap.  that sucks.  but, I haven't read the book yet, and I may not even have it read before I see the movie (then again, I kinda like my pattern...see movie, read book).  so maybe the next HP swap.  have fun guys!

Krafty_Karasu  I sure hope things work out well for you. I'm sure there will be a round 7 out there eventually if you can't make this one.

thanks.  and yeah, I'm sure I'll be able to join one later on.  I just hope it can be sooner rather than later.  it wouldn't be too much of a problem if it was for my leg (though stairs could be a problem since my craft area is in the basement), but since it's surgery for my arm, I'm not so sure...

3746  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Clay hair help on: February 01, 2009 02:57:41 PM
condition it with an additive (a bit of vegetable oil, Vaseline, liquid clay, etc) to soften it more than just the heat from regular friction and stretching would do.

seriously?!?!?!  I really don't NEED to buy liquid clay?!?!  awesome!

I was worried about this myself, but when I read this, it just made me (and my wallet) smile!

all hail the polyclay queen!   Wink

It is only truly a legal problem if you intend on selling the finished item.   Smiley  If you are concerned about copyright, please check out the crafty business advice board.  There is always lively discussion regarding that topic.

Keep in mind, though, that it is a THEME.  The project is supposed to be based on the theme.  It could be a necklace inspired by a TV character, a sculpture of what you think a book character looks like, or even a piece of wall art.  It just has to be primarily made of polymer, air dry, or metal clay.

I worked in collections for years, and one of the stores we collected for was The Disney Store.  We opted to hand-draw an "award" for top collectors.  NOTHING was sold, and it was hand drawn by an employee so nothing was technically reproduced (as in putting a Disney coloring book on a copy machine....)

When the "big wigs" from the company came and saw those certificates on desks, they made everyone who had one take it down and throw it away.  Like, INSTANTLY.

This is one red flag I have going off.
I'm not trying to harp, or negate anyone's tallents on these threads.  I think people do AMAZING work on here.  It would seem that receiving a prize is the same as getting paid. Again, not trying to be a thorn in anyone's side, or a nay-sayer.  I'm just concerned.

I may have an "answer"-ish type thing for this.

as in collections, do you mean collecting money?  monetary involvement is a red flag definitely.  I had created a beaded wall-hanging from a video game sprite (you may or may not have seen it as I did display it on here quite a while ago) and I was interested in entering it in a Fire Mountain contest.  I e-mailed them asking if I would need to get permission to enter it or if it was ok to just enter it.  they told me that since there was the possibility of monetary gain, I would need the permission of Disney AND Square Enix (since Disney owned "The Little Mermaid" and Square Enix created the sprite for their video game).  if I didn't get permission, and someone from those companies saw it or someone reported me, I could get in trouble.  so in the end, I didn't enter it (too much hassle, never knew if I'd get a response in time, plus I doubted myself and figured I wouldn't win anyway).  not so sure about the "inspired by" part though...

in the end, it's all up to the mods.  I do hope this helped in some way.   Undecided

I'll have to think about it.  now that I am almost done with Breaking Dawn, I'm ready to get in on a Twilight swap.  the problem is, I'm supposed to be having surgery at some point (still waiting for approval), and I'm not sure if it will interfere.  I'll be calling my doctor on Monday to see when the request was sent, but even if it has been 21 days (I was told that was how long they had to respond) and they still haven't responded, that creates more problems and more delays.  if I haven't heard anything by the 14th, I guess I'm out again.   Sad  last time it was because I had only read Twilight.  this time, it's a little more "serious" than that.   Cry

thank you.   Smiley

I have some other bookmarks and some jewelry here.  I still have to make my Breaking Dawn one though.  I haven't had a chance to yet.   Sad
