Thank you all! Without a doubt, the dragonflies and dragon's eyes are always huge hits so you all have VERY good tastes  Grin

You guys are awesome for confidence!  Grin I really did just pick the clay up in April....I'll admit I'm an info hound and did lots of research first, mostly to figure out what I liked, not just styles but also techniques. I used to design painted woodcrafts so coming up with original things is not new to me but this is entirely different from painted woodcrafts  Tongue I had been thinking about picking up polymer clay for about a year before doing it, it was an itch and was not going away, do you all get those? So in spring this year I went nuts at the library and with my michaels coupons (buying one tool each week!) I really feel like it brings something out in me that could never get to the surface before, I really love this stuff. I love how you get to add things to it and texture it. I really look forward to a couple of years from now and what I might be making, it's exciting.

I LOVE Christi's stuff! I was inspired by her and so many others, I feel like a product of everyone who's ever posted their polymer clay projects on the internet because I think I looked at them all, on flickr, on google. Every single one was inspiring in some way.

I use a lot of mica powders, that's where the metallic look comes from. I really love the mica powders but am going to make an effort to do more with less of it, to have things look more real? I have a lot of learning to do as far as techniques go and patience in mixing colors, but I make up for it in fun lol

One thing I really think helps my pieces pop is the antiquing, I highly recommend anyone who isn't antiquing, to try and get comfortable with it, the difference between a piece with and without is like night and day. And one thing I know I cannot do is make replicas of things, so I don't even try, you've just got to be yourself and make things you think are cool.

Thank you everyone for all the compliments, you all rock! To tell you the truth I feel like I fit in here more than on other forums.

Hi All! I'm not a heavy poster so it took a bit for me to get my 10 posts in so I could post photos  Roll Eyes I think there's a great and talented group here and I've enjoyed going around and checking out everything.

I have not been working with polymer clay nearly as long as most of you, but I do love it. I just think the sheer possibilities of it are exciting. I make mostly pendants...for now. They are a lot of fun but I'm sure what I make will change just as much as the quality (hopefully!) get's better and my imagination cuts loose.

I used to cross stitch A LOT and had RSI in my elbow, I can tell you the only thing that helped was stopping the cross stitch. I have had no issues with my elbow from the clay Smiley

That looks like some cool stuff, I love how it can just hold it in midair like that. I hope hobby lobby will get it, I don't have any immediate plans for new orders but I may have to change that!

I like those, too! They have surprisingly not been favorites though. I think maybe you either like the rustic look of them or you don't.
