I'm making a little trinkety box and want to press sead beads into the clay before baking.  Does anyone know if this will work or if it will melt/destroy the beads or cause other problems?

I made a pin with plastic jewels and they mmmeeeeelllttttteed ddddd.  So I would strongly suggest using the glass beads.

I love polymer clay!

Do either of you belong to a guild?  I am with the Baltimore Polymer Clay guild.  I used to run Polymer Clay Polyzine.

I have glass beads on hand, so it sounds like I'm good to go.

I just goof around with polymer clay a little; I'm not in a guild.  But I'll check out your other posts to hopefully see some of your clay work!

Try a little TLS before putting your seed beads on that way you have less shedding.  Grin

liquid sculpey, it acts as a "glue" - the seed beads will be easy to rub off if they are just pressed into the clay before you bake it.

There are unbelievable artists doing incredible things with polymer clay.  It can be a fine art medium and the guilds are one way of getting that message out.
