Polymer clay crafting tips:

  • Work with a high quality product like sculpey clay.
  • Use plastic wrap in an air tight container to store clay.
  • Score where you want two pieces of clay to stick together.
  • Shape cutters work best on a flat, solid work surface.
  • A craft oven is not needed.
  • Bake at low temperatures to allow the clay to set slowly and prevent cracking.
  • You can find clay of all kinds of different colors at Michaels stores.

I love the pretty texture that the doily imprint makes on this handmade ornament!  I could see making these with the kids as a Valentine’s or Christmas craft.  The polymer clay is super durable once baked, making it perfect for little kids.
