okay, probably a dumb question, but i just wanted to double check. i want to make some polymer clay magnets for my fridge, and i was wondering if it was better to just glue the magnets on after baking or if i can bake the magnets on the clay?
i saw a pasta clay machine at ac moore yesterday on sale for $10, but my fiance, who's a cook, said you can get a regular pasta machine at some places for as low as $7. how much was your pasta machine and where did you get it, or do you know of any online place to get one for cheap?
i'm just like you, when i make something, i don't want to wait for the finished result. i asked for that oven for my birthday and i didn't even touch my clay until i got it. i LOVE my oven, it works great, and it doesn't take up much room. the natural odor that occurs when you're baking clay seemes minimized as well, so my fiance doesn't get annoyed. while i do see nothing wrong with using a regular oven or a toaster oven, this is also a good oven, especially with the coupon. plus, they say after you bake polymer clay in something, you shouldn't use it for food, so whether you go with this oven or a toaster oven, you can only use it for that anyway. i like it though. =)
i have that really cute "cotton candy friends" flannel fabric from joann's and i'd LOVE to make a simple hobo out of it. but i've made flannel purses before and they pill so bad, i was wondering if there was anything i could do to prevent that?? and what weight of interfacing/what type do you guys think would be good??
