I've recently decided to try my hand at this polymer clay-goodness, and have had a great time making these things. Smiley

Skulley-guy.
 I'm not yet sure what I will do wtih him, but I'm thinking about sticking him on a box...or something? herm.. any suggestions?


exibit b.)
le Necklace
I made this to match a skirt...could have done better, I think, but I like it okay.


exibit c.)
food magnets
i made these to go on the fridge in my appartment...im pretty siked about them. especially the frying pan.. i realize that none of these foods necesarily belong together, but I had a limited selection of colors. so, this is the best i could do.  Roll Eyes

Of course, there's always jewelry (pins, pendants, even barrettes), but since it's not real small (hard to tell from the pic though), it might be better to use it as an embellishment on things that have been covered with polymer like a tin, jar, box, etc., or things that aren't clay (tin, box, candle, etc.).  Since it's already baked, you don't have quite as many options though because it now has to go on a flat surface, unless you don't mind it not being flat which could be good too.  Maybe a Halloween decoration of some kind too.

Did you know that you can mix your polymer clay colors to get a whole range of new colors?  It's pretty much just like mixing paint, and fun too.  You had the basic red, blue and yellow, so along with white and maybe black you can mix just loads of colors (the glitter colors work too).
If you want bunches of info about that, plus lots of recipes for individual colors, check out this page at my site:

Have fun!

P.S.  love your icon too... I lived in Germany for a while and there was one intersection of streets  that used to be named "macht nichts corner" (or machts nicht) because no matter which way you went, you'd probably still end up going the wrong way  Grin
