Okay so a couple month ago I entered a contest from the New Era hat company called "Introducing" where you display your art and if they like it and you get enough votes you go on to phase two. I admit I actually forgot that I had entered it lol opps :/ Then I get an email saying congratulations you've made it to phase two and they sent me the "Cube" in it was a blank hat a few acrylic paint markers and some other random things. So now since I had not planned anything I have no idea what to do except perhap incorporate polymer clay. I only have two weeks but I cannot figure out how to do this lol. And can polymer clay even be used on fabric? I don't know I'm so confused  Huh

Heres the link to the gallery from last year in case you were curious

You can do all kinds of things with polymer clay and fabric.
You can adhere a (thin or thick) sheet of it to fabric or down into the weave of fabric; you can bake clay items, then glue them to the fabric or hat (as "onlays"); you can do surface effects on the clay on the hat or add to the hat (metallic powders and leaf, texturing, stamping, antiquing, highlighting, drawings, paintings, transfers, cane slices, etc, etc).

You can find info about all those things on these pages of my site (specific categories indicated), and usually some examples though many links may be dead now:

http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/covering.htm
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/molds.htm (also Antiquing, Highlighting)
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/transfers.htm
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sheets.htm


Also, this kind of thing is similar to the exhibition/contest (sponsored by Van Aken and Donna Kato) a number of years ago where each clayer embellished a shoe with clay.  The clayer could start with an adult-size shoe of their choice and the final shoes were all quite different.
It's hard to find pics of those online anymore but I googled around and found a few:

Oh cool!... Carol Duvall still has a video up of a segment on her show where she showed 7 or 8 of the 40 entries (just wait through the 30-sec ad, and the video will come up shortly):

These may not have been in that contest:

You could also look at the various (large) cows, dolphins, bears, etc, where artists are challenged to come up with embellished versions in cities in the same kind of way, for inspiration:

and you can find even more of these by clicking on the little arrow-on-a-square link at the end of many of the ones listed "In America" or in the category above that:

I have soaked liquid clay into cotton fabric and it create an oil cloth type of feel. Its very cool as you can cut it into any shape and die cut it, the sky is the limit. Good luck!
