Adventures with Polymer Clay!


Good evening cuties! Hope your day ended on a happy note. Today I was able to create with a art medium I've been wanting to get my hands on for years - polymer clay!

An Etsy seller I follow mentioned on Facebook that Michael's has their polymer clay on sale for .99! That's a steal since the kind I got usually sales for almost $3.00. I picked up 11 colors, clay tools, and glaze for under $20. I couldn't wait to get home to "play". Here are some pictures of what I made tonight. For a first-timer, I must say that the clay was pretty easy to work with. I did have to bake it a little longer than recommended, but all in all it worked out great.

If you're interested in working with polymer clay as well, YouTube is your best friend. There are tons of videos that teach you the basics to making wonderful things. Also, make sure to swing by Michael's for your clay while it's only .99! Have fun creating! Later cuties :)

This is a marble pendant that I made using brown and pink polymer clay. I call this piece "Chocolate and Strawberries"

My husband said this looked like a sunflower, so I painted a happy face on it to make it a happy sunflower. 
I love these beads! They were so much fun to make.  I call these "Watermelon Swirl" beads.


  1. The sunflower is adorable! I can't wait to find out who the winner is too!

  2. Thanks! I had so much fun creating with it. I'm making a lot of cute stuff now. I'll have to take pictures and do a part 2 of this post.
