This has been a very surreal crafting experience
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...

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

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been really really busy.  I've finally managed to finish the piece for JillHogan.  Just have to find my way to the post office now.  Grin

Yay Yay Yay!
Can't wait.

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.

Sorry things aren't working out the way you had planned, but I'm happy to hear that what ever I receive will be perfect.  Third time's a charm right?  Wink

Most definitely. I did end up making one for you and one for me and that seems to have done the trick. I hope you like it. I sent it out today but it may take a bit to cross the pond. This has been a fun as well as educational swap thanks for the opportunitiy.

Fingers crossed - baking tonight. It looks good uncooked, too bad it's not like cookie dough and it would be good in either form....

And besides my lovely partner, are one of you swappers an expert in polymer clay? I have a quick question - I can look it up I suppose. PM me if you think you can help....and thanks.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
