Tutorial – EFColor Low Temp Enamel

After weeks and weeks of fun days in the studio exploring the wonders of EFColor Low Temp Enamels I decided it would be a great idea to create a tutorial.  Combining EFColor and polymer clay seems like a match made in heaven, and I have to tell you, it is. EFColor powders stick really well…

Product Review – EFColor Enamel and Polymer Clay

For the last 12 months or so I’ve  been exploring and experimenting with EFColor low temp enamels and polymer clay.  This has been a really exciting journey for me and I know I still have much more to learn about this product. What is EFColor Low Temp Enamel? EFColor Low Temp Enamel is actually a…

Inspiration – Curtain Ring Mixed Media Wreaths

These little Christmas Wreaths are just the cutest and they were so easy to make. I love that I was able to use found objects which kept the cost to a minimum and made them original and unique.  Even though some of the found objects really weren’t Christmassy, I think they have a bit of…

Product Review: Lucy Struncova Texture Stamps with Polymer Clay

Yay!! it’s finally time to sit with my Lucy Struncova texture stamps and play with some polymer clay processes.  I’ve had these stamps for a couple of years now (huge thanks Lucy) and have pulled them out every now and then to work with but treated them like any other texture stamp and jumped in…

Inspiration: Polymer Clay Pods – Variations to the Basic Shape

My recent free tutorial on creating polymer clay pods sparked some interesting conversations about pod shapes, names, uses and variations. There are literally hundreds of ways you can “alter” something to make it look different. It’s actually heaps of fun for me to challenge myself to do this.  My visual diary is full of pages…

Inspiration: Miniature Polymer Clay Pots

What is it about the miniature world that is so fascinating??  I’ve always had a fascination for miniatures but have never really delved into making them…apart from the odd mini polymer clay flower. The journey of miniatures began, for me, about 3 or 4 months ago when I purchased a gorgeous ceramic mini vase necklace,…
