What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try your hand at rubber stamp impressing on polymer clay, you can get some really nice effects.

Cool! I need to try some mica powders for my next polymer clay project.

I'm not very good at comission work. My Aunt ordered these after she saw a peice I did before...all she said was red, blue & brown but like that, as she pointed to it. It's just a disk with a snowflake impressed in it. I hope she will like them, I'm mailimg them out today.

This is beautiful! I bought polymer clay & lost all inspiration. Mine didn't bake well. How thick & how long do you bake? If you put it in a bezel, do you bake it in there or just do an outline & glue in there? I need help!

Thank you so much. This peice is about 1/4''- 3/8'' thick & I always bake at the recommended temp,(270 -275) although clays differ according to brand. Another tip( I didn't think it was important till I burned my first peice) an oven thermometer. I check my temp every 10 or so peices because I use a large toaster type oven. Pre-heating the oven can also help keep the temp more even while baking. As far as a bezel I've never used a metal premade bezel although I would like to try (my local craft store is 65 miles away so I dont get there too often). So I would probably just use glue, or you could use a thin layer of liquid clay between your peice & the bezel & then bake or rebake. I hope I was of some help, I love questions so feel free to ask & I try to answer the best I can.
