1  Swirled lentil bead pendants in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by norsgoebel on: July 02, 2007 07:06:09 PM
I've been playing with polymer for quite awhile and just recently tried to make the swirly lentil beads.  I've been having so much fun with them.  This was the tutorial I used:

And these are my pendants

I received a starter kit for Christmas and have been slowly getting used to it.  This is my first pendant I made and I also made a letter N key chain for a friend.

I've read that PMC3 can be fired on a gas stove top but have not found any info on that.  Anyone familiar with that technique?  I was also taken aback by how sticky the PMC3 was, it was quite hard to work with.  I usually work with polymer clay and was expecting that kind of consistency I guess.  Do you know if there is a method for leaching the clay , like you can with polymer to make it more firm and manageable? Thanks for all the info, I've read through this whole thread!

Thought I'd post an update of my back tat.  Here it is after 4 more hours of work. I think I have about 4 more to go to get it where I can call it done (for now)

I started my back piece this week.  I'm so excited about it. I'm recreating a painting a close friend did.  He died in March and it's a bit of a memorial to him.  He drew the design for my first tattoo I got many moons ago and this one was going to be a cover up of the old one but I didn't like how the placement was going to be so I decided to make it bigger and smack dab in the middle of my back.

This is what the finished design will look like in another 5-6 hours of sitting time

Finally after a looooong dry spell (mainly caused by extreme business at work) I finally put something new in the shop.  I call him Potsticker Dude, I love his sun kissed face!

8  Potsticker Dude in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by norsgoebel on: June 28, 2006 03:00:41 PM
Here's my latest.  I painted his beard and cheeks with liquid sculpey mixed with irridescent powder.  The centers of the flowers are glass beads as well as two glass beads for his eyes.  I tried to match the tiny blue flowers to his eyes and only used the irridescent powder on those.

9  Day of the Dead wedding cake toppers in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by norsgoebel on: June 11, 2006 04:43:28 PM
I made these last year for Dixie_Terror's brother.  He was having a halloween wedding with a Day of the Dead theme.  I had a great time with them and want to make some more.  I used crumpled aluminum foil for the body armature and made a hole in the base of them that was the same diameter as a wooden dowel.  The dowel was glued in with plain white glue after they were baked so they could be secured into the wedding cake top.  The dowel could then be removed afterwards so they could be keepsakes.

10  Pins I love, that never sell... in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by norsgoebel on: June 11, 2006 04:37:35 PM
I used translucent clay with a bit of white and ecru mixed in and used a photo transfer technique with clip art, art for the background.  I baked them right in the cabochon setting with the small watch parts and then finished them with a polymer friendly glaze (I can't remember if I used Sculpey brand or another) I finished them with a tie tack back.  Guess they'll end up being Christmas/birthday/arbor day gifts!
