Tonic, the good news is that you can make virtually any kind of chess pieces you want with polymer clay (alone, or mixed media with other things).  You can free-shape/sculpt them or use molds from other items, or more simplified or completely abstract figures/items could be used as well.  The only limit is your imagination.

So if you're interested in making chess pieces (and even chess boards) from polymer clay, check out this page at my website where there are lessons, ideas, links to examples, etc.
(...click on the sub-category "Games," then scroll down 5-6 screenfuls till you get to the sub-sub-category called "Chess and Checkers"...)

Thanks for that Diane at least I have a long time to practise before having them ready for Christmas. Your site is awesome I have bookmarked it, all the things I can make, can you tell I'm new to fimo clay. When I say awesome I mean really really awesome I can't believe some of the stuff you cover and have links for I don't know why I bought those books you have way more information.

[Yep.  Spotlight sells beeswax (in small quantities).  What do you want to make with beeswax?  If it's only a small amount, sometimes health food shops carry it - much cheaper than Spotlight.

BTW - I'm from Blacktown.  I know someone in Blue Mountains - does that count too?Huh

Hi tried Spotlight at Penrith they didn't carry it or so the girl said. I managed to pick some up on the net I tried Capillano first they sell in 19 ton lots Grin so I declined and most of theres is shipped out of the country. But I found a nice Company and they are sending me 3 kilos you can buy smaller amounts I just decided since it doesn't go off to buy for life as I only need a few grams at a time. Roll Eyes I should of thought to try Blacktown.

Unfortunately Amareluna is right depending on the type of soap I want to end up with depends on which oils I use and even the water is changeable. Well to be honest I never use straight water I use a lot of different teas as a part of my base. For a first soap depending on which method you are using hot or cold process, using a double boiler etc Choose the method and then follow a recipe exactly for that method preferable one with a really good tute that shows you it at different stages. The hardest soap to make is your first one after that it is so much easier because you know how it should look at different stages.  Practise makes perfect just take the proper precautions with the lye and you should be fine.

Beautiful work I would be so impressed if I could do anything half as good as those, how long have you been doing it for. Shocked

Is he looking for supplies for himself or for you?


buying for me, he is quite happy  to buy what ever I want as long as I can tell him where to go and what to get. I think getting someone to take him around the shops makes more sense as I have the problem of not knowing what you have over there. Plus another crafter is sure to know prices etc so he doesn't buy cheap goods at expensive prices.The poor thing has grown up with me as his mother so he quite used to being dragged around craft stores and having opinions on craft stuff, but he personally is into role playing games .

Hi All

Sorry to butt in but I was looking for craft shops in Ottawa to send my son to, he is at Carleton University for a few months. But after reading this and getting totally confused as to what is actually there I was wondering if anyone at Carleton Uni would like to meet up with my son and take him shopping. I am looking for what you call shrinky dink paper and well anything that is easier to get in Canada than Australia I would love some beeswax, canadian wool. Anyway if anyone is available could you email me sage@mageflame.net.
