7  Poly clay cross in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Luvebuggy99 on: July 12, 2015 07:29:11 PM

My mom was having trouble finding a cross for her car, so I decided to make her one. This is my final product. She's very happy with it Smiley

I made different little swirls and lines with a pretty blue and applied them to a thick piece of black clay that I cut in the cross shape. With all the little swirls this took me a good 3 hours, but if it makes my momma happy its worth it Smiley

Thanks for looking!  Grin

Time to finish up some pieces for your in-progress altered puzzles, or begin a new one!

For this swap, you repurpose or purchase a jigsaw puzzle (cardboard or wooden) and send two pieces to each of your partners.  You can choose the theme, or you can let your partners have an artists choice.  Totally up to you.

Ideally, we will be in groups of six, meaning you mail out and alter ten puzzle pieces.  (This is subject to change slightly, based on how many swappers sign up.)  If you prefer to be in more than one group, please let me know.

This is open to international partners. Willingness to ship internationally is required for this swap, given the small size of what were sending.  

PIECES MUST BE ENCLOSED IN CARDSTOCK OR A GREETING CARD.  If you think it needs to be hand cancelled, please write that on the envelope.  Personally, Ill probably be sending mine in mailers, because it just seems safest.  But use your judgement based on the size and thickness of the pieces your mailing.  Remember how difficult it is when a pieces goes missing (it is a puzzle, after all!) Thanks.

While waiting for partners, you should:

1. Buy or choose a puzzle.

2. Assemble and number the backside of EACH piece.

3. Decide if you want the pieces facing the same way or all over the place. Add arrows to backs of pieces to indicate which direction. (On the questionnaire, I will ask if your pieces are one direction or any direction).

4. Choose your theme or themes.

5. Prepare your pieces.  Some people just mail them as they are; others sand them a bit and add some gesso to make a clean slate.  Its up to you.  

6. You can write a letter to include with your pieces and make your wishes known - glitter or no glitter, 3-D or no 3-D, words or no words, whatever guidelines you have for your finished pieces. You can also say "Artist's choice with an ocean theme" or "Artist's Choice" - this means each partner will decorate/alter the pieces in his/her own way and you will have a puzzle with a random look.

7. Remember, you will send out your pieces to each partner for altering. It's a good idea to copy or trace pieces before sending out if anything goes missing.  


Here are some Craftster altered puzzle masters and mistresses:

Hey Ya'll!

Altered puzzle swap is one of my absolute favorites, so I was thinking I'd organize the next one as long as people still want to do this swap. Who's in?!
