Huge collection of FREE polymer clay tutorials!
« on: April 30, 2011, 02:34:19 PM »
Just thought I would post this link for those clayers not around in the days of Polyzine, the online polymer clay magazine (sadly no longer with us)

There are some great ideas on this site - and none of them will cost you a penny ;-)

Glass Attic is another great resource for clayers. Tips and ideas, collated from hundreds of forum posts over many years by the wondrous Diane Black.

The result is an encyclopaedia of polymer clay info

Been looking through some of these cool links on and off today.

Many I have seen before, but forgotten how good they are. Like the Rose cane tute for example

http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/rose1.html

Some I have never even noticed before, even though they were online for years! There really is so much great clay info available online.

So do take some time out to explore all these pages and others. There are some real gems out there. Many of the polymer clay techniques and ideas I see for sale are already out online somewhere, just waiting to be enjoyed.

What about this great Feather cane from Donna Kato?

There are sooo many good free tutes out there.

Sadly they do get rather lost in all the crud these days, but there is some brilliant stuff just waiting to be explored.

Great links Di!

The last one has some lovely examples of watercolour technique too, if you scroll down the page a little.

That last blog was great it just shows you we shouldnt be scared of our clay! I tend to play on the safe side and make uniform pieces but hers are very rugged if you know what I mean, not sure of the word i'm looking for, very artistic.
