Just Clayin' Around

 Lately I have been looking at YouTube video of charm making using polymer clay. Some of my favorites are SoCraftastic,PaperPastels,GentlemanBunny. SoCraftastic's channel is the one who really got me curious though. I just love her creativity and her detailed tutorials. So I ordered this book called The Incredible Book of Clay. The book cost about $20.00. Today was a rainy day and my husband stayed home from work. Alex and him hung around together so I finally had the chance to use the clay. This was my first time using clay. It gives your hand quite a workout.I decided to make a Hello Kitty key chain. After I finished making and baking it, I did not realize how much of my mistakes would show up. Their was alot of lint visible and little marks that I did not smooth out. After they cooled off, I applied a thin coat of glitter nail polish. After that dried, I applied a thin coat of ModPodge to give it a little shine.I know Sculpy has a gloss that you can apply, but that was all I had on hand. I may purchase it, because I have a 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby. I really like the results. I will definitely keep practicing.

Last night I was able to do this pattern on my nails using Bundle Monster Plate 221. I applied a beige color as my base coat then sponged Jaguar by Pure Ice over it in little splotches. I used the Konad Speciall color in black to stamp on the image. After that dried, I used a dotting tool to color in some dark brown spots on the stamped image. I will keep this design on for a few more days.Thanks for stopping by.
