What’s the Deal with Polymer Clay? Part Two

In part one, I showed you some examples of things that are made of polymer clay that were once made of other materials. The fact the polymer clay is so easy to work with lends itself to many applications. Today I will show you more examples of this awesome material.

If you missed part one, you can read it here.

Let’s continue with the parade.

Creating wall art or journal covers can be achieved by what I call “painting”. You use polymer clay to create a scene on a flat surface. Here are a few examples.

This is an attempt I made at “painting” a beach scene. Lots of fun and used minimal tools.

As you can see, this is just a small selection of things that can be created with polymer clay. I hope you follow me on this journey of artistic discovery. We will learn all sorts of techniques, get to know the artists, and put your own spin on the tutorials. There is no wrong way with polymer clay. But, there are some tips you will learn to make your projects successful. Life is better with creativity! You don’t have to be a pro. Create with your heart. Give to your friends and family. Teach others with joy.

Until next time!

Leslie,

Peace, Love & Polymer Clay!!

    I love polymer clay! I never knew you could do so much with them, I only use them to make small key chains but after reading this I think I’m going to start to get more creative and maybe make a drawing with it, the animals at the bottom are adorable

    Very interesting post but I’m wondering exactly what polymer clay is. I had to ask my daughter who is an artist. I’d love to read “What’s the deal with polymer clay part one” which you said it could be read below, but I don’t see it. I wonder if you could put a link in Part Two linking to Part One? I’m intrigued and will be back to read more.

      Hi Karen! Thanks so much for the comment. I have included this link to “what is polymer clay” http://peacelovepolymerclay.com/polymer-clay-for-beginners. I also fixed the link to Part One of the post you read (still getting used to this linking thing haha). I hope you do come back and read more. Polymer clay is somewhat unknown in the crafting world but it’s awesome!

      Peace! 

      Leslie
