Hey! So I just started experimenting with polymer clay and modeling clay! I used Premo clay, Sculpy glaze and Rossart clay, the latter of which didn't have cooking instructions so they died and melted in the oven Sad but i was smart/silly enough to use a muffin tin to cook them in so my polymer clay charms were ok.
Sadly the melted ones were better then the ones I'm going to post.

P.S Sorry about the poor Image quality. I am a good photographer but this camera has eaten too much sand and refuses to be nice to me XP.

#1: Oswald hatless the Octopus! (didn't have the color for his hat)

#2: Mario Mushroom

#3: Baa Baa Blackberry Sheep

#4: Shiny Cuppy-Cake

#5: The Poopie (once a bad cake)

so thats about it. I'll be making more soon.
Thanks for looking!

Gee Weenie... (lol, i read Oswald books to the kids all teh time, very cute!)

for glazing without fingerprints...

i used to hang the bead (or whatever) on a bent piece of wire to glaze. I liked to brush it on so I felt like i was chasing the bead if that makes sense and then i'd end up bumping the bead, getting prints, etc. If you hold the wire hook with needle nose pliers you will have more control. then you can hook it on a piece of wire to hang and dry.

lots of people dip the bead into the glaze, maybe they want to chime in with tips  here...

Cute! ... even the grinning brown fella  Grin


Tips on how to glaze and Tips on how not to leave behind finger prints are MUCH appreciated.

Check out this page for fingerprints:
(...click on Fingerprints & Smoothing...)

And this page for finishes:
(...click on Finishes Made Specifically for Polymer Clay if you want to continue to use Sculpey Glaze
....click on Varathane and/or Future if you'd rather use those, which are preferred by many clayers)

P.S.  The reason that your RoseArt brand of clay melted in the oven is because it isn't a polymer clay.  "Modeling clays" are oil based like polymer clays so they also don't dry out in the air, but they've had a wax added to them too so they'll just melt when heated rather than cure and get hard.  (Clay Toons, Plastalina, and those long sticks of "modeling clay" are the same type as your RoseArt.)

P.P.S.  If you don't have a close-up function (flower icon usually) on your camera, you can always "take a photo" of even 3-D items by placing them on the glass of a scanner ... to get the best result, also cover the items/glass with a shallow white box top, etc.
