1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Unbaked clay + hotfix crystals on: October 06, 2009 03:35:13 PM
Thanks, Diane. Just the info I needed. I'm going to go ahead and back the crystals in place.

The onlay info was very good, and answered many questions about adhesives.

I have used your glassattic site many times, and tried to find the answer to this question here, but never thought to look under "onlay" or "inlay".

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Unbaked clay + hotfix crystals on: October 06, 2009 10:12:41 AM
I did a search on "crystal" in this board and didn't find anything, so here's my question:

If you put hotfix crystals into unbaked polymer clay and then bake it, will the adhesive on the crystals work?

Has anybody tried this?

I am trying to save myself the cost of experimenting because those little crystals can get pricey! I have some already baked clay beads that I'm planning to attach the crystals to, but that shouldn't be a problem (I believe!) because it seems people have done that before successfully. The thing is, for the crystal to be flush with the surface, I'd either have to drill into the baked clay or place the crystal into unbaked clay so that it's flush with the surface. And using the unbaked clay would be much, much easier and more efficient if it's possible.

Thanks for any info/insight.

I have found that if I cover the clay sheet with a layer of plastic cling wrap I get a much nicer and smoother bevel.

This is so cool. I think I'm gonna have to swipe one of my husband's t-shirts and reverse applique something on it for Valentine's Day.

You rock.

Pretty, pretty. Your new stuff is making me want to break out the wire and the bead box. Alas, chores await.

And thanks for the tute.

Thanks for looking! Yes, they're crocheted. And it doesn't take that long to make them. What takes a long time is practicing to crochet wire, which gives you really interesting calluses.

Here's the card. The image is a Dover copyright free one. I made the up really quick for a show of my stuff at the local library. Made them in Photoshop, then used the Avery wizard in MSWord to format them into sheets of business cards. Then punched holes in 'em. I worked as a graphic designer for a long time so doing computer graphics is no big deal for me.

 Cheesy That's funny! I don't even particularly like Dr. Who, but that's beside the point.

I made these a long time ago. I guess you could say I'm shy. For a couple of years I've been lurking around Craftster, because I love to make stuff and see what other people have made. There's so much to admire and to learn from here!

Anyhow, I thought I'd share. .

Please let me know what you think!

Grats on your hearts!

I'm gonna start participating in Etsy forums, since the place does seem to function around them, according to your experience.

Nobody seems to be looking at my shop a month after I opened it! And I did announce to my friends and family.

Was thrilled just to see my shop in "Pounce" after I posted new items today. Woo hoo!
