Fun With Polymer Clay...

I have decided to very briefly venture into another craft, just to give it a quick try.  

I picked up some polymer clay (Primo to be exact) last weekend, and decided to give bead making a go.

I bought one package of blue, one of black, and one of silver.  With these colors I made blue mixed with silver and black mixed with silver.

Here they are just before baking ---

I just popped them in the oven at 275F for 25 minutes and it seems to have done the trick!

Here they are after baking---

I think they turned out pretty well and I think I'll likely do some more experimenting with this craft, but I will definitely be sticking with the fiber crafts (they're a lot easier on the hands).

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but I think that some of the black and silver ones might be destined for a bracelet.

I hope everyone is having a restful and crafty Sunday.

Knitting is less toxic too. Make sure you keep the windows open.

Cute beads!
