I gave my sister the Polymer Clay Cookbook (http://www.amazon.ca/Polymer-Clay-Cookbook-Tiny-Jewelry/dp/0823024849) for Christmas and she made a cute pair of mug earrings following the instructions.

She works at a coffee shop called Esquires, so I painted the logo onto the mugs. It think they turned out pretty cute Smiley

They even have coffee inside them Smiley

A close up of the logo.

Thanks for looking Smiley

I LOVE those!!!! What kind of paint did you use? I bet she'll get so many comments when she wears them at work...:-)

Hey, just wondering: do many projects in that book call for a pasta machine?

Thanks guys Smiley

Hippie9: I just used plain ol' acrylic paint on the mugs (with a teeeny brush). Once that dried I used a glaze to prevent it from chipping off and to seal it against weather etc..

I don't think any of the projects require a pasta machine. Since all the projects are miniature food, there isn't a need to mix large portions of clay and all the flattening needed can be done by hand. I think they mention it as a possible tool, but by all means not necessary for creating things in the book.
