Blargh!
It is hard to do something that I did not anticipate. 

I agree Jill, that is what I like about swaps- they push me out of my comfort zone and force me to try something new- This swap had me sculpting a dragon something I never thought I would do bit I think it came out pretty good- My  partner received her yesterday and she is already in the gallery

Okay I have watched waaaaayyyyy too many YouTube videos about how to do what I want to do and read alot of the Polymer Clay board but the question is - can I do it? I have a second ______ to practice on so keep your fingers crossed.

And thanks for all the tips on this thread and the gallery thread about how to bake. I will use foil tents from now on!

If it can go wrong it has with this swap. I made the first one and used clear clay instead of white and so I did it again bso it would be right. The next time it came out beautifully and I sprayed Krylon gloss sealer on it and of course sticky is the only word to describe it. LOL I tried to rebake it and then when that did not work tried acetone and that helped but I will be working on it some more. Needless to say I want it to be better than that so I will be attempting the project for a third time tonight. I am sooooo sorry sushipanda I am not flaking I promise. This has been a very surreal crafting experience I think Murphy is looking over my shoulder. Anyone have any thoughts on how to salvage the other piece.

I made Teag's project from start to finish today.  I wasn't looking at the clock but I think it took me about 3 hours to sit down and do it from beginning to end.  So hopefully I'll find a box and be able to mail it on Monday.   Cheesy

Should I take that personally?? JK.  Sorry it has been a frustrating go for you.  Interesting so many people (including me) have had so many redos with this challenge.  Poly is a fickle mistress it seems...

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

LOL oops! I have learned alot about clay this time around. I have kept my mess ups and joked with my partner that I am not wanting to send this out because I keep having to redo it. I think this next time I will make two one for her and one for me then there are no excuses right? LOL
