hi, i'm new here so uh yeah...

this is one of my first projects in clay...it's an ashtray. in the middle i guess is a lil volcano, around that is the island sand, and around that...you have the water and the sky. you can stand a stick of incense in the middle of the volcano and stub your cigarrettes in the sand.

GlassAttic --polymer clay "encyclopedia"

Love the ashtray and the sand idea!.  But do be careful to tell users that firery cigarette ends or burning incense shouldn't actually touch the polymer clay itself since it will begin to scorch at around 300 degrees and  burn at over 385 (emitting a thick black, toxic smoke which ain't healthy to breathe). 

Another thing you might want to try sometime for making an ashtray is putting your clay on the back side of a clear glass bowl or plate where it won't contact the heat... or you could put something heat resistant into your clay area or covering the clay (like your little island but made of metal or glass).

(Candle holders can be a problem too if the flame or hot wax is in contact with any clay parts for more than a second or two, but if they're just votive type holders with the flame a bit away that won't be a problem.)

Holders for stick incense shouldn't be as much of a problem as ciggies though, because generally the incense will burn out before the wood part of the stick is used up, and by the time the ash hits the clay it's not really very hot.

What other kinds of things have you done with polymer clay???  And did you use a mold for your fish or sculpt it (or make your own mold first)??
