Want Some Tips For Working With Polymer Clay?
I often get a lot of questions about the way I use clay, and I thought it would be fun to give you a bunch of random tips that can make things a bit easier and look much better! I use many of these tips myself, so I hope that you will find them useful!
:tp: Your work surface is extremely important. I find that working with your clay on a ceramic tile works best, but you can use marble or granite or even a piece of glass. This is great because the clay doesn't stick very easily. Plastic is okay, but it isn't the best.
:tp: Keep your work surface dust free. Dust is your enemy. It is everywhere! Before you work with your clay, give your work surface a nice big wipe with some paper towel and a bit of rubbing alcohol or get some of those alcohol wipes. This gets off any surface dirt that may be on the surface as well as the dreaded dust.
:tp: Your hands need to be as dust free as your work surface. What I do is wash my hands with dishsoap before I start, and than I either air dry my hands i

Some More Polymer Clay Tips
Back by popular demand, I have gathered more polymer clay tips for you to use to improve your pieces! If you didn't get to see the first installment, please check it out here: http://news.deviantart.com/article/67871/
Let's begin!
:orange: Don't use those crappy Sculpey or Fimo glosses for your creations. Their expensive as hell, you only get a tiny bit in a jar, and their usually very gloopy and annoying to apply. Do yourself a favour - go to the hardware store and ask for "Varathane". This is found in the paint department with all the wood stainers and such. Make sure you buy the WATERBASED formula, in GLOSS not semi-gloss. This stuff sells for about $7.00 for a 946mL tin and you will not need to buy anymore gloss for a very long time. This stuff works wonders - it may be for wood, but this stuff has IPN technology which means Interpenetrating Polymer Network which means it's going to soak into your clay, adhere well, and make your clay creations damn spiffy looking.
:orange: To get

I bet there's not even anyone still on here! I came back in search of old art trades/fan arts and got all caught up. Some of the pieces featuring Eilidh and Carlwm are going to be put in a gift scrapbook for my beloved because next month I will be marrying the love of my life, the man I met here 10 years ago. So weird, and so amazing.

Coming back here and seeing all those familiar names from way back then though, it's made me glad to have had cool supportive people here while I working out my art shit ^_^
