1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / A Question about canes on: November 01, 2007 05:13:25 PM
I've had a look at the tutorials, but I need to ask a really basic question!
How do you cut a cane?
When I've tried cutting them, they have distorted beyond belief, you know, the colours have run down with the motion of the knife I've usede - if that makes sense.
I don't have anything I can use really apart froma sharp knife and my craft shop doesn't have much tbh either.
So.. how do you do it? Do you just have to be really slow and careful??
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / How can I strengthen my sheep's ears?? on: October 16, 2007 03:12:13 AM
Hey folks,
I'm totally new to this, but I made these last night:

As you can see the middle one looks really folorn because his ears came off, because obvously they went brittle. I did expect this to happen, but they look bald without ears! Is there any way that I can strengthen them? I wondered if I used a small piece of wire, poked it into the head, then moulded the ear on it - if you know what I mean. Would this work? Is there anything else you can suggest?
Cheers in advance Smiley
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / A Wee Viking - my first polymer project! on: October 12, 2007 12:05:55 PM
Hey folks,
Well this is my first ever plymer clay project which I did today. He's a wee Viking!  I was going to put a pair of knitting needles in his beard, but it'd have ruined it if I did so I left the beard alone!!

Thanks fo the comments on my stole as well by the way Cheesy it's my proudest knitting to date so I'm really chuffed you all like it too, specially as I wasn't sure if the colour would work!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baltic Sea Stole in hand dyed 2 ply on: October 12, 2007 03:24:56 AM
This is my Baltic Sea Stole from Fiber Trends, knitted in my own hand dyed 2 ply lambswool. I'm quite proud of it as I've only been knitting 9-10 months.
Just want to add that this place is SO addictive!!
