  • 19 MARY ANN // Dec 29, 2011 at 4:18 am

    A coworker introduced me to Polymer Clay in a workshop one day ..we covered empty chemo bottles with the clay of different colors and topped the bottles with a small clay creation, using some of my chatons to glitz them up a bit… the finished products were beautiful little Bottles of Hope for cancer patients in the form of angels & flowers etc. I’m sure there is more to the art than what we could learn in an hour, so I would like to refresh what I know and learn how to make other things like beads in clay also.
