Here is a pendant and a pair of earrings I made recently, after a workshop with Melanie West on translucent caning. 
The earrings I planned to be mis-matched.  Made from the scrap ends of canes, it turned out I had no choice.  And one of the black and white dividing lines on the pendant is not straight.  But still really pleased with the results.

Thanks Emma for sending the Cernit translucent clay so quickly.  So well packaged I had trouble getting in.  Have you any sellotape left.

Warm it up a bit - sit on it or keep it in a pocket, then take thin slices and go over them with your roller before attempting to put them in the pasta machine.....don't be in too much of a hurry to add softener  ;)

It might be ok, the only way to tell is to give it a go.

Yes, you can buy clay softener to make it more malleable.

General Polymer Clay Questions / Old Premo Sculpey
« Last post by Spangles on October 20, 2017, 10:23:08 AM »
Can anyone tell me how long Premo Sculpey can be kept and then used successfully?  I have unopened packets with dates of 2011, 12 and 13 on the sides!  Is there a product that can be used to help with conditioning old packs?  They do feel slightly hard but still have bendable edges.

Things are worse than I thought sadly. His memory is practically nonexistent, he forgets his meds,forgets what you said to him two minutes ago, is deaf but denies it and his sole focus in life is to get to his lady friends house. She is now in the early stages of dementia and her family is talking about her needing to be in sheltered accommodation ( she went to the local shop two minutes away and was gone for 5 hours, she has no idea where she went), when that happens I know that they will not tell FIL and they will not tell us, yes I think they are that selfish, to my mind that will finish them both. We've done what we can but I know we'll be going up there again soon, things can't continue the way they are.
