Polymer Clay ~My First Yarn Bowl

Polymer Clay ~My First Yarn Bowl  http://www.niftynnifer.com/2015/04/polymer-clay-my-first-yarn-bowl.html


Yea, I am a beginner when it comes to clay,So this is my very first serious attempt at FIMO/Polymer clay work. I thought I would make a fun yarn bowl for my self. I kind of changed my frame of mind half way through, as I realised that I prefer to use my hands rather than a rolling pin and other tools.... I think I fell in love with the character I can create using my hands and clay...

MATERIALS I USED
~ Oven/Preheated to 265 F
~ Steel Mixing Bowl
~ FIMO/Polymer clay
~ Acrylic Paint
~ Paint brush
~ Rolling Pin
~ Wax Paper

Today I felt like trying something different. I have little experience with polymer clay and would classify myself as a beginner.
My first advice is to start with a clean, dry surface and supplies. I layed out wax paper to help keep my table clean and the clay from sticking to the surface.

This boy is so smart. After we (He and I) enrolled in the
 free 'Stunning Birthday Cards' class from Craftsy, He 
decided to take the cards to a whole new level. Here is a great photo of him hard at work on this years Science Fair Project. He decided to incorporate the Penny Slider Card idea into his project!! And it sure does add some fun to his hard work. We have had hours of fun preparing his display board, and I am so proud of his hard work.
