I have always been fascinated with designs. I grew up loving art, drawing and coloring. During my school days, my projects consistently mirrored creativity. It’s a natural gift that I w0uld like to hone and utilize. The only problem is where to apply it. Then, the thought of clay baking comes in. Believing it’s the perfect subject to employ my artistic skill, I tagged along Adrian and attended a workshop last Saturday.
Our mentor was Ms. Kathleen Ching of Pumpkin Beads of Multiply. She started the 4-hour introducing the materials used for baking, from polymer clays, acrylic rolling pin, push molds and almost everything basic about polymer clay. I took a shot of them.
Ok, I’ll cut my story short and continue to my favorite part, molding/ designing! Hahaha (what a bias).
Our first take was to make a cookie. Here are the procedures.
As we go on, I learned that the clays vary in their degree of softness. Some were not-so-soft, others were hard that needs clay softener to enable molding. Our next task was an ice cream.
The designs we made were baked for thirty minutes. Here are the baked goodies/ finished products. The eye pins will serve as attachment for keychains or cellphone charms. The letters were made using the push molds.
More baked clays will be posted in the future. I was thinking of something like "Clay Tuesday" to make room for my baked clays. Who knows? I might be at Multiply, selling these products.
