What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've never given up on a peice, I just keep working it until I get it right. Sometime you may just need to walk away from it for a few minutes & when you come back to it you'll see the answer.

I love the "stone" in this piece!! What do you buff and polish with?

OK it's confession time...1st of a this is the only peice I've ever done this way( it's pretty popular with some crafters but to me it's too expensive). 2nd of all I decided when I saw how it photographed I'd have to get more familiar with it, & decide it's not too expensive at least for some peices. It's liquid polymer clay, mine is liquid sculpy. When I baked this stone I had accidentaly used a glitter in it that wasn't heat safe( the white one) & it protruded out of the stone & was very ugly ( looked all spikey). So after the usual sanding & buffing I still wasn't really happy with it, it just didnt sparkle or shine. So I tried this liquid clay tip I saw, It's just a thin layer of the liquid clay baked over the stone then plunged into cold water. Then I sanded & buffed as usual, & then it has a couple of coats of gloss polyurathane.

Hi Lynn. This is my favorite of your pieces here. i am new to the clay, haven't done very much of it. Love the leaf detail on this piece.

Thank you so much. It is very different from the other peices. I'll be starting some new peices just after the holidays.
