1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Polymer clay newbie on: July 28, 2008 08:26:07 AM
I bought Sculpey Studio clay earlier today on impulse, without seeing the teeny tiny warning at the back that said that it could cause birth defects. Anyway, seeing that <i>after</i> buying it, I just want to know: would it still be safe to use food cutters on food after using it on polymer clay? I read somewhere around craftster that polymer clay should never touch food, but the cutters aren't food anyway and I'm planning to sterilize them right after. I know it'll be a lot easier (and more hygienic and possibly lifesaving haha) to just buy separate cutters but I'm too excited to use the clay NOW. What do you guys think?

just an idea, maybe you could stick it on a piece of shrunken plastic then seal it with something. if it's a simple shape (like a square or an oval) then you could cut the side of the sticker if it's too big for the finished plastic. if not, then maybe the plastic could serve as a frame for your sticker, then seal it. hope it helps, please update us if it works or not!

Hey there,

The earrings you want to imitate are fantastic!

I know how to do a 2-dimensional version of this, I suspect a 3-D version would be similar. To do the 2-D version, string a number of beads on to a piece of thin, strong wire, then thread the wire back through the beads again, and pull the wire from both ends. YOu'll get a circle. I'm sure you could adapt this technique to get a fairly similar result. I've also just strung a bunch of beads onto one wire, coiled the bead full of wires into a ball shape, and twisted the wire in and amongst the beads til it all stays together. Not as elegant a technique, but effective.

Thanks! Will try it out and post a pic if it turns out well! Smiley

I'd like to know what exactly do you call these:

(image taken from www.davikinyc.com please tell me if i'm not allowed to do this!)

I've been searching craftster for "beaded ball(s)" and "beaded bead(s)" and "crystal ball(s)" but nothing similar comes up. I would like to make something like that and I'm not giving up hope that there might be a tutorial here somewhere Smiley What keywords should I put in, or does anyone know how to make these? Smiley

And just so this is not a question only post, here's something I made the other night. Quite uninspired but I'm proud of it Smiley

6  COOKING / Dessert / Burnt Cupcakes on: April 27, 2008 06:05:28 AM
Here's a question that I'm hoping will find an answer here on Craftster. When I bake cupcakes, the bottoms usually end up getting burnt. I follow recipes carefully but no matter what I do I get blackened bottoms but perfectly cooked tops and middles. I tried reducing the baking time and/or temperature but when the bottoms are not burnt, the middle part ends up raw. How do you think should I resolve this? Help please!

I'll be posting this on the desserts thread as well, so if it's not in the proper place, feel free to remove it.

wow, that's amazing, it looks great on you Smiley did you use a tutorial??


Hey, thanks! I didn't use a tutorial for this, I just kind of attached the circles together. There is a tutorial for circular brick stitch here on Craftster though: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195640.0

Hope it helps! Cheesy
