My ‘Charming’ Starflower tutorial published!

The latest edition of the wonderful and colourful  ‘From Polymer to Art’ magazine is out, it’s the Black and White edition and I have a tutorial in it! I just received my copy, my kids were so excited to see me in the magazine – I was pretty excited too 😉 You may remember that I also had an article in the Purple Edition too, about my curing experiments. Here’s a little sneak of what else is in the magazine, there...

I have found and used lots of free polymer clay cane tutorials on the internet, thank you to all those clever people out there who share their knowledge. For a while I have come across tutorials that you have to buy and I have always wondered if it would be worth it. Well one day I decided I would splash out and give them a go. I have been delighted with the canes I have made and I hope I can now take what I have learned from these talented...
