    Hi,

    I have just started making polymer clay flower necklaces, and atthough I am very happy with their appearance, I am having problemd with the petals breaking off. I am using Sculpey Premo, baking it at the length of time and temperature recommended so I do not know what the problem is.I already have 2 friends who would like to buy a necklace but of course I cannot sale anything until I get this sorted. .

    Can anyone suggest a solution. I have read about coating the jewellery with resin afterwards but I am not sure about that.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    I have attached a photo as an example.

    Firstly, welcome to the forum.

    Secondly, I can't help with your problem and I know less than nothing about polymer clay, but I think we have a member or two who do work with this medium. However, I think they are not regular visitors so you may not get a very quick solution.

    And lastly, I think your work is lovely. I am trying to learn how to make silk flowers and looking at your picture I can appreciate the intricacy and skill in creating something like that.
