;_; I'm sorry to hear that. There really isn't such a thing as wasted clay, I use scrap clay to make larger sculptures that will be painted. Plus there is a great tutorial on DA where you use 'mess up" clay to make cans and other projects. Don't give up!
Hellu~ I'm pretty new at using and working with polymer clay and I was wondering.. After you bake the polymer clay, is it really recommended to glaze it? And thank you so much for the cute and easy tutorial~
After an item is baked it does not need to be glazed.
Glaze is helpful if you want a shiny item, or if you have painted your charms after baking, it is more like adding a clear protective coat. This is all optional. You can leave the item as is, or there are tons of ways to polish and buff polymer clay items to get them to shine.
Thank you for letting me know c: I've seen a lot of people glaze their works and I was just wondering. Another question.. Is it okay to glaze the works with clear nail polish instead? I have some lying around that I really don't use at all. I'd like to make use of it xD
Oh, most certainly c: For the buffing, what do you use to buff the items? I've recently made two small charms, a lollipop I'm planning to paint, and a strawberry, and they're just sitting on my bookshelf XD
Again, thanks for taking your time to help a fellow newbie to polymer clay
Yes, you can bake eye pins and headpins in the oven. So long as they are made of metal, they shouldn't give you any problems. There -are- some hypoallergenic finding out there made of plastics and those are -not- oven friendly, but pretty much anything metal is oven-safe.
how do you get the eyehook to stay in?? im using sculpey...erm...3, i think, and i cant seem to get my eyehook to stay in after it bakes! it always comes out!! D: also, what glaze do you use? this is brilliant, by the way! so real!!! *om nom nom*
