Hi everyone! I hope you're having a lovely beginning of the year 2010, and spending loads of time watching the Vancouver Winter Olympics Wink I know I am! I've also been experimenting with different polymer clay techniques lately - especially the many uses of liquid sculpey and fimo deko gel.

Here are some of my recent work Smiley

So cute! how do you make your macaroons so perfect? I tried to make some a while ago and I didn't like how they turned out.



Mine were box-y and weird.

Thank you Smiley

I have a video tutorial for the way I make them. But I can't link to it directly, I think. In the past my videotutorials weren't approved here, because it's "advertising" Smiley

Hi Artful/Gentleman Bunny Grin 

Nice stuff, and have now watched a few of your tutorials at YouTube.
(NOTE: link to all Artful's tutorials are in signature area at bottom of her posts).

I just watched your video tutorial on making a spongy-textured cake with baking powder:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdyMAaJ-x0E and had a couple of questions before adding a link to it at my site (in the spongy-texture area):

...is the texture of your finished cake as "bouncy" to the feel as it looks?
...is the clay that seems to cling to the aluminum foil when you remove the cake, gooey at all? --and if so, does that mean that the clay is not completely cured so that it could later begin eating through the clay on the outside of the cake making it sticky/etc?
...what temp have you been using for curing the baking powder combo? (and how long)

...have you tried various proportions of baking soda to liquid clay to see if that changes the total amount of holey-ness or the amount of rise, or the size of the holes?
...are you adding about 1 part baking powder to 2 parts liquid clay here?
...have you tried using baking soda instead of baking powder?

...is the colorant added to your liquid clay an artists' oil paint, or an acrylic paint --and if acrylic, does that add to some of the bubbles in your spongy texture?

TIA,
Diane B.
