Hi Everyone
« on: January 20, 2017, 04:15:19 PM »
Hi my name is Kevin. I am a total newbie to Polymer clay, really excited by the prospect of working with this medium. My main interest will be in sculpting figures I think, although some of the jewellery I have seen is absolutely stunning.
I am awaiting my first delivery of Sculpey as I think this will suit my needs the best. I have gathered a basic tool set, looking for a pasta machine at the moment.
Really looking forward to enjoying my time here and to swap ideas and get inspiration from the more experienced users here :)
Cheers

Carrie

Hi Kevin, Carrie is right there are many sculptors on this forum that'll be able to give you excellent advice, hints and tips. One piece of equipment you will need is a pencil and pad that's portable just for those ideas that happen when you least expect it!

Welcome to the forum Kevin!

As you will have noticed, many of us here are bead/jewellery focussed - but we have some incredibly talented sculptors too here so I am sure you will feel quite at home.

As for finding pasta machines - ask friends and family first - so many have pasta machines tucked away that they don't ever use and will happy to be rid of! Car boots, charity shops too are all good places to find them
