I don't give much info on this blog about polymer clay, because my focus is on inspiring jewelry designers and all things beady. But I do know that there are polymer folks who visit the blog, just because they love all things polymer. And who wouldn't? Polymer clay is like the most awesome stuff on the planet.
So to make it up to you polymer peeps, I'm having a giveaway just for you this week. First, one lucky winner will get these 4 texture sheets that I love using. There is a linen texture, faux bark, stripes and dots. So much fun to press in the clay and paint over to show off the texture. This set comes from a blinds sample book that Jess brought home from an interior designer's office. He is good at collecting weird random things that turn out to be genius. The four sheets measure about 2 1/2" square.
The second part of the prize is an advanced copy of Polymer Pizzazz 2, which will be out in April!!! Yes, you can win it here first. It has 25 eclectic projects from notable polymer clay artists like Pam Wynn, Barbara McGuire, Lisa Pavelka and Christi Friesen - to name a few. The projects range from whimsical to modern. There is an interesting mixed media section that you'll have to check out.
Okay, so you do have to work for this prize. Share the title of your favorite polymer clay book and one online polymer clay resource. Folks are always emailing me asking for that and I never have a good answer for them.
My two favorite polymer books of recent of Ancient Modern: Polymer Clay + Wire Jewelry by Perfectly Paired: Designing Jewelry With Polymer and Metal Clays.
I'll pick a winner on Friday, March 18th.
P.S. Online resources - Sorry for the confusion! I didn't mean material sources, but your favorite online resources for tutorials, lessons, videos, inspiration, etc.
