    I saw this and thought you were talking about a new bit as in drill. One track mind

      Yay, it's here! Thanks Mr Media.

      I make polymer clay beads and jewellery, but I also like to make little figures (they're very much just for fun though. No matter which animal I make, people always think it's a squirrel!)

        Oh so glad to have a polymer clay section here.

        Well - I sort of live, breathe, eat and sleep polymer clay. Well, I don't eat it - but if I could, I probably would!

        I make beads, and sometimes jewellery too, primarily. I also write about polymer clay, time allowing and sell the clay and related tools and supplies from my online store too.

          You don't? Really? Not even by, say, accident? (I found a piece in my cup if tea once I only tasted it a moment, but it wasn't too bad)

              Thank you Mr Media

              I'm just starting out, I want to make some embellishments to go on my plaques and I wanted a go at something new.

              I'm sticking to very simple and basic for now!! but hopefully effective too, just to add a little something to some of the plaques. I've put my 1st attempts on the craft projects threads

              I'm bound to be on here loads asking loads of questions so sorry in advance.

                  I make cake toppers, all kinds of animals, jewelly (though not put any up for sale), door plaques, christmas tree ornaments, fridge magnets, beads, garden pots, and just about anything else I think of.

                    If it's anything like most polymer clay rooms, it'll be covered in mica powder and glitter within the first day ;p

                      ROFL Scarily true.

                      Mr Man was annoyed with me one day about all the glitter and shouted "can't you keep that hippie dust of yours under control?"

                      And he didn't realise why I just fell over laughing.

                        Much depends on what type of work you want to do really.

                        A modeller would have a very different basic tool kit from someone who makes beads and jewellery for example.

                        I have started another thread in this section though, just listing what I think is really useful to start out if you want to make beads and jewellery.

                        Hopefully others will add to the thread with their lists of "must-have" tools too!

                          I'm really glad you suggested this Emma, think it's just what the forum needed.
                          As a complete newbie to polymer clay I will watch these threads with interest,
                          Thanks

                            Hi, I've used neutral coloured polmer for a while and painted it. (Couldn't find beads to buy that were big and bold enough, so tried to make them instead). But I am entirely new to using coloured polymer clay, and I feel like I am starting all over again - all those new fiddly techniques, and my hands feel so big and clumsy..... Hopefully, things will get better......

                            PS. Yes, THANKS Mr M!

                              What a great idea! I've just got into making polymer clay beads and pendants for jewellery. I love it and the OH bought me loads for Christmas.
                              I'm going to upload some of the stuff I've made to my website this weekend and will post some piccies when I do.
