Polymer Clay is a blast! We will learn basic techniques; color blending, handbuilding, tools, and more. I will guide you through constructing a basic cane, for cutting into tiles or making beads and you will make at least 1 handmade bead (most likely 2 or 3). I will share my clay “hacks” and we will breakdown different brands and elements of polymer clay. I will share resources, as well. The tactile aspect of it is so satisfying, and the colours, blending and design are wide open.

Material list:

  • Level and smooth work area at least 20 x 20 inches
  • Polymer Clay (Suggest Fimo, Sculpey or Cernit brands)
  • Long razor blade
  • Rolling pin or fondant roller (acrylic is best) If you don’t have one, a sturdy and smooth even (same diameter bottom and top) tumbler will do.
  • Smooth tile or smooth acrylic or glass cutting board (smooth surface, not porous is best)
  • Access to oven or toaster oven, and a timer.
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Graph Paper (for measuring for equality in size when working w cane and clay)
  • Toothpick or large diameter needle, like a large embroidery needle (for making holes).
  • Small piece of extra fine sand paper
  • Clean, dry cloth
