Premo Polymer Clay

Over the last few months I have rediscovered polymer clay . I had used sculpey lll years ago and just stopped and my clay went hard and cooked it self in my craft shed. In April I was asked to teach polymer clay buttons for a knitting spinning retreat. so I had to get out my pasta machine and buy some clay and practice . Two Girlfriends visited on a saturday so I could practice my lesson plan on them . All went very well. I had 11 Students for the morning lesson at camp and they all made a selection of lovely buttons and some made handles for their crochet hooks. I think that they were happy with the morning's work. everyone took home some lovely buttons.




 
 I was in love with the new premo clay . it seemed so much better than before. I have spent quite a bit on clay and new tools and paints.I have been using some great youtube videos to relearn and learn how to make things with polymer clay  I really like
