Details of swap:

This is a swap for anyone who loves polymer clay already or would like to get more into it! Partners will be crafting only things involving polymer clay-- jewelry, covered tins, figures, barettes, ect, and can also add supplies into the package if they like. Your level of experience with clay doesn't matter, anyone can join Cheesy.

This is a 4 point swap, and you can craft any size combination to get there. You may also talk to your partner about sending beyond that. For those unfamiliar with the points system or just need a refresher, here you go:

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

You will have one month of crafting time. I want this to be a flake free swap, so please remember to keep in communication; post in the thread once in awhile and talk to your partner.

To join this swap, PM Xandrigirly. With all messages please put Polymer Clay Swap in the subject with either Questionnaire/Question/Sent/Received after it.

This sounds fun, I love playing with clay, even though I'm not very good at it lol.  But an excuse to practice is always good, and it doesn't seem like shipping would be too extravagant for this wither, I am seriously going to consider this one! Smiley

I have discovered (for me at least) that the key to being happy with what I make in poly clay is coating it in some kind of varnish.  Even if I'm not happy with how it looks after it's baked, add a few coats of something shiny, and it hides all the fingermarks and any odd color mixing and such Grin

Rubber gloves help A LOT with fingerprints. And with keeping white and light clay the right colors.

My big love with clay right now is powder pigments. I love love love the stuff. It's so fun to use  Cheesy
