    Creating Clay Canes

    What Are Clay Canes? Have you ever seen those candies with the teeny tiny images in them? Or clay work that looks like there’s an image built right into it (not just painted on)? These are probably using a technique called cane making! It’s essentially the process of building a larger image with your material and condensing it down into...

    Inspiration and Creativity-Turning the Natural Into the Fantastical

    I’ve always loved to create and love that polymer clay has given me a way to express my creativity in a way that many other mediums can’t. It allows me to sculpt the creatures and characters that I see in my minds eye in a 3-dimensional form so that others can also see, hold and touch them, bringing them to...

    Clay Sketching

    What is clay sketching? Have you heard the term maquette used before? I must admit it was a while before I knew what it meant, even though I’d been making many. A Maquette is a small three-dimensional study or model of a larger piece, allowing the artist to experiment with shapes, materials and approaches to a larger or final piece...

    How to Paint on Polymer Clay

    I have never really painted on clay a lot in my career. I guess I’ve always tried to achieve the end goal through the colors of the clay itself. With that said, I have called upon a couple of my claying friends to shore me up in the areas of clay painting where I am weak. I hope you enjoy...

    How to Effectively Use Oven Bake Clay Adhesive

    There are lots of ways to bond finished oven baked clay projects to jewelry findings and other smooth surfaces with silicone glues and even instant drying glues. However, for clay-to-clay adhesion and clay to porous surfaces adhesion, I prefer to use Oven Bake Clay Adhesive (formerly known as Bake ‘n Bond).

    Finding Inspiration and Working Thru Creative Blocks

    A lot of creatives straddle with the back-and-forth of their inspiration. It’s a mystical thing, a unicorn that peeks its head from behind an old tree you’ve walked by for years, and suddenly you’re looking at it with an entirely different perspective. However, that tree has always been as it was, only cloaked by a fleeting magic called inspiration. When...

    Why I Teach Caning with Souffle and Why I Teach Caning with Just One Color

    I believe we’ve established the fact that I’m obsessed with cane making. That’s why I’ve paid close attention to the properties of Sculpey III, Premo and Souffle. I choose Souffle for caning for these reasons: I love the dryish, velvety texture. The clay does not stick to the work surface and it resists sticking to itself. That allows me to...

    The Agony & Ecstasy of Millefiori in Polymer Clay

    Wayyyy back in 1961, Irving Stone wrote a book about Michelangelo’s struggles as an artist. I was always obsessed with art, and a voracious reader; but I didn’t read the book. My excuse? I was seven. I DID see the movie in 1965 though; and it made a big impression on me. People suffer for their art! Who knew? I...

    Pattern to Slab – Adding Dimension with Translucency

    I have a bit of an obsession with translating patterns I see in fabric, photos, etc. into polymer clay. Whenever something catches my eye, my mind begins to ponder what techniques I can use to recreate the look. Sometimes, it’s silk screening or textures. Sometimes it’s colorings like alcohol inks or pastels. Sometimes it’s dimensional effects like molded or sculpted...

    Searching for Inspiration

    I started a daily photo project about 7 years ago to post a daily photo on my Instagram. Since Instagram is a square format, I challenged myself to not only find something photographically interesting on my walk, but to also visualize the cropping for the square format (since my phone is set to wide format for our sunsets). Then something...

    Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Looking for inspiration we often find ourselves on social media. We often find beautiful pictures, quotes and inspirational words. They are meant to inspire or help spark a new idea. One of the topics, I often see, is based around the idea that we do have a comfort zone. And often we are encouraged to break out of it. I...
