1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: A few questions about starting out with polymer clay. on: February 26, 2011 11:23:27 AM
Hi there! I'm pretty new to working with polymer clay myself, but maybe I can share with you something I've dug up on the subject.

Because polymer clay can be baked several times, you might want to consider series baking for dolls & figurines. I stumbled upon this really informative page on www.elvenwork.com that covers the basics. I've linked you to the paragraph specifically on series baking, but if you explore the site a little bit you'll find some very useful reading material. Good luck, and I hope this helps!

Awesome! I've been reading up a little bit on how to use mica powder; as soon as I get a paycheck I can blow on craft supplies I'll post how everything turns out. Thanks for your advice. :D

Hi everyone! Here I've got my newly completed projects in polymer clay. I've only recently started using it, so comments, critique and advice are most definitely encouraged! Here's what I've come up with:

(Please forgive the picture quality; my camera is really a phone right now)

The brain is one of my earliest sculptures. I may have baked him too long; he's a lot darker than when I carved him.


This is a necklace I've made for a LARP costume. I'm definitely going to be adding more beads to this.


I haven't yet decided what to name this piece. For the time being I'm calling it my "Feminist Pendant."

Thanks for looking!
