The enormous beauty of polymer clay

Usually, we don’t add video tutorials that are extremely specific, but when we saw this video from SugarCharmShop we just couldn’t resist adding it so that all of you can view it. Polymer clay is an excellent sculpting material, but it seems that many people think it is a less serious material then traditional clay, only useful for childish sculptures and so on. This video definitely proves those myths wrong! In this tutorial we get a chance to see the full potential of this material when used by a true master. Just watch and be amazed!

Make a polymer clay copy with a mold!

Lets face it, polymer clay is a great sculpting material, but no clay model will be better than the artist making them. It takes a lot of experience and a steady hand to make clay models that looks identical to other object, right? Well there is another more simple way of cloning an object in polymer clay form and NerdECrafter knows all about it. In this video, she shares her wisdom on this matter, and its super simple to learn. Enjoy!

Joining pieces without glue or screws!

It’s only natural. Whenever we want to put two things together, we reach for the glue. And there’s nothing wrong about that! But wouldn’t it feel much sweeter and special if you could assemble an object, simply by pressing it into each other like Lego? Most material can do this, if they are shaped properly, and wood is exceptionally good at doing this. ThisWoodwork made this mirror by fitting pieces of wood together. Sure, he used glue for the ornament, but the main construct doesn’t need it. It just fit into each other like they were ment to be together! If the tolerances are good, you don’t need any glue. And if the tolerances are bad, chances are you can fix it with a file or a piece of masking tape!
