Polymer Clay Bookmarks
Every once in a while it's nice to have an opportunity to play with a new medium. When a challenge was posted in my art group earlier this year to make a bookmark using polymer clay, I decided to give it a whirl.
Ready for the Oven!
I found my stash of polymer clay, dusted my off sculpting skills and dug my old baking sheets out of the cupboard to try something that was w-a-y out of my traditional "comfort zone".
After the bookmarks were baked, I rubbed and buffed them with a little acrylic paint and allowed them to dry. Finally, I added a little glitter (because a little glitter "makes magic"), and brushed them with a coat of clear nail polish for protection.
This project definitely tested my skills, but considering the fact that scuplting is NOT my "strong suit", I was very pleased with the results. After all, that's what challenges are for!!!
May your work be artful and fearless!
