Journal Entry: Thu Jun 5, 2014, 7:48 AM


Polymerclay is a wonderfull material to let every dream and vision come true, and even if its a simple material the possibilities to use it or to combine it with other materials is nearly unlimited - combined with glass, gems, metall or even leather and wood the most beautifull works can be created!

So, to continue with features here some of my very favourite artworks and jewelry pieces made from polymerclay - many of these artist are my daily inspiration and I hope they can inspire you too!:love:

I've considered using polymerclay to make trinkets for my various assemblage pieces for a while, and have wondered how hard it is to work with.
Is it relatively easy to manage? :D

Ganjamira Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
I can only recommend it - sure it takes some time to learn the basics of sculpting (if you never sculpted before it can still get annoying...) but its very easy to use, aviable in many colors and many ways to use it.
But I also recommend to browse daviantArt for tutorials before you start ahead - I did´nt used tutorials for a long time and it took me veeeery long to explore some of the simplest techniques myself, so alot rage and despair can be avoided=D

Is there any substitute for polymer clay? Any non oven-baked clay that's goid?
Reply
:iconganjamira:
Ganjamira Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
There are many airdrying clays, but those often get cracks while drying or are not good to work with (avoid FIMOair and EberhardtFaber-Airdrying clay, its junk!)

There are other optins as:

-wax  (extremely sensitiv, camn always melt or break, ect...)

- plastiline (non-hardening sculpting material - similar to wax)

- ApoxyScult (Epoxy clay, airdying, but only 1-3hours workingtime, very smooth, flexible)

-other Epoxy clays (maaaany out there, just google it)

-Cold Porcelaine (airdrying, hard as stone when dry, 30% shrinking while drying, you can mix it yourself, just google for multiple recepies!)

Thanks. The climate here dries polymer clay, so they don't sell it.

How can one work with wax?
Reply
:iconganjamira:
Ganjamira Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Understandable...If you like I could send you a block white clay to test arround? (its the best color to paint it after baking^^)

Quiete simple, like with clay, only that sculpting wax is slightly harder and is often more carved then sculpted:meow:
