Love to Create Polymer Clay and Mixed Media Art? We do too!

I love to create with polymer clay and use whatever supplies I have on hand. I have had this handmade paper with holes in it from Jolees Boutique for awhile but then inspiration hit me and I decided to make a canvas incorporating it into my design. I love the way you can see through it to what is underneath. I also incorporated one of our brand new Resin Adornment birds, some washi tape and a few other supplies. I walk you through how I made the entire canvas on the video. Don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss anything!

Polymer Clay Tips and Tricks E Book Released

The Polymer Clay Ultimate Guide: 202 Polymer Clay Tips and Tricks to Make Working with Polymer Clay Easier

This is the 2nd in the Ultimate Guide E Book series and its jam packed with polymer clay tips and tricks, in fact there are 202 of them. Kira and I have both been working with polymer clay for over 20 years, I started in 1989. When I started there weren’t even ANY polymer clay books on the market. I know that is hard to believe but its true. Shortly after the very first book came on the market it was called The New Clay and it changed my life to see all of the different things being made with the clay. At the time I started I was living in NYC and only knew a couple of people that worked with the clay that were putting themselves out there. Some are still around now and I have admired their work from the start. Boy has polymer clay evolved and I am happy to say I have been a part of it. I have NEVER been bored with the clay and am still learning over 25 years later. Its a clay of infinite possibilities, in fact back in 1995 I owned an art gallery I called Infinite Possibilities and now that I have moved on to my own studio I have also decided to call my studio Infinite Possibilities. I got the name from a lyric in a song by Tracy Chapman, she said something to this effect. We are living in a world of infinite possibilities so always keep dreaming!
