Magic!

I know the science behind Silver Clay, but I have to say, experiencing it for the first time was nothing short of Magic!

This little Scroll Heart is my first attempt at working with Silver Clay and I have to say I am really happy with the end result.

Now I need to work out how to marry it with my polymer clay. I have a lot of ideas, but will have to do a little trial and error I think, to see if they will work.

It is very, very different from working with Polymer. For one thing you have next to no time to actually work it, even with the slow drying clay. It is not elastic, as polymer clay is and it cracks very easily as it begins to dry out. The discipline of working with the two clays in conjunction is going to be quite interesting I think.

Can't wait for tomorrow to play again.

Hi Pips
That is such a great first pendant :) Combining Silver Clay & Polymer clay is loads of fun & you're sooooo talented with the polymer!
I've recently started a blog with PMC tips...14 years with silver clay & I finally start a blog, lol :-)
You'll find it at http://www.pmctips.blogspot.com/
