3D paint with polymer clay
Looking for ideas to use your 3D paints?
Use them to create creative stamps!
Parole de Pate blog (Sabine Alienor) posted this tutorial long ago but it is never too old to try it!
The technique is very simple – draw or print your design, trace it with your paint, let dry completly and use with polymer clay!

Miniature architecture by Oliver
Oliver is a polymer clay architect. He is also 16.
He takes buildings, ships, cars, trains and other architectural items/miniatures and duplicates them in clay, in small scale.
He mentions tin foil in addition to polymer clay as one of his materials, probably used as an armature. What a fun way to use polymer clay! Wish I knew it when I was 16.

Polymer clay owls by Zuta
Zuzana Talášková’s (Zuta art) flickr gallery is crowded with cats, owls, horses, elephants, fish and other millefiori jewellery.
Her colors are vibrant and her canes combinations are very geometric. Zuzana is from Czech Republic artist working with polymer clay since 2009. https://www.flickr.com/photos/45852763@N06/

Polymer clay elephants gifts
Speaking of elephants. I took Kni Kni’s idea, giving away souvenirs when traveling (she was in India) and both me and my children made really quick versions of it to give to our Thailand hosts. Kids cannot wait to spread the polymer word in Thailand too!
I cannot promise to post regularly while on the roads but you're welcome to follow me on Facebook for more traveling pictures. Take care till my return!
