Longtime lurker...first time poster!  I've gotten so many neat ideas that I wanted to contribute something.

I'm sort of a beginner with polymer clay so far, but here is one of my very first projects.  It's THE first one I'm proud enough of to post pictures of, in fact.  Smiley  Of course now that it's been a few months and I'm looking at these closeups I can see all kinds of things I wish I'd done differently, but hey..that's what being a beginner is all about, right?  Wink

(I'm "old" enough here to finally display pics!)



It started off as a blue glass decorative corked jar and is wrapped & topped with sculpey.  I made it as a mother's day gift for my mom - it's just the right height to hold q-tips and her bathroom is in a fish/underwater theme so it worked out nicely. Smiley

Hopefully soon I'll have time to make more projects...this site is extremely inspiring!

Very nice!   I love to see cool things made from clay that are actually useful too, and there are so many different possibilites!

(whoops, I'm too new here to post pics yet, but here are liniks:)

Don't forget to come back after you've posted 10 times I think it is (in any board, btw  Wink) and turn these links into photos.  You'll generally get a lot more responses for one thing, but it's always good to be able to see items when they're being described too.

Welcome to the site and (sort-of) to polymer clay!

Thats really cool! I like the way the blue isn't all one solid colour, it's a bit marbaly (sp?) to give a good sea effect

Oh my goodness, this is FABULOUS!!!! I love it! I have a ton of old mason jars I've been wanting to redecorate. Between my mod podge/magazine idea and now sculpey, i think we have two winners! Cheesy

Oh, and it'll help too if you add "NOW WITH PICS instead of links" to your subject line (or something like that)  Grin
