Polymer Clay Inspiration!

polymer-clay-inspiration-collage

In my opinion, polymer clay does not receive the attention that it so deserves. Polymer clay is polyvinyl chloride that will harden when properly baked. It is a great art medium for mixed media jewelry artists to use with rubber stamps and acrylic paints. With this post I hope to inspire you to open your mind to the possibilities.

Mary Lynn Maloney did this how-to video for us some time ago; however, it is still a great video showing how to texturize polymer clay with rubber stamps and how to colorize with acrylic paints.
