Spice Up Your Polymer Clay Textures-Friday Findings

Have you noticed that artists tend to look at things a little bit differently than other people?

Thank goodness for that! I think the world would be a boring place if we all thought the same way.

Sometimes you just need to look at the everyday objects around you with a different point of view to find new possibilities.

I went into my kitchen looking for new texture tools and discovered three different spices that make beautiful textures and texture sheets for polymer clay.

Btw, once you’ve used your spices on clay I would not recommend cooking with them! They’re craft supplies now.

Polymer clay is not toxic, but it still doesn’t seem like a good idea.

  1. Love your spices idea for texture on clay. I found cut crystal with some gorgeous designs on the bottoms at a thrift shop and bought them. They made the most fantastic texture sheets. I wrapped my clay around the bottom and sides and, made the impression, then carefully flattened the clay down. I always keep a lookout for more when I go to thrift shops. Tried pressed glass but it didn’t work nearly as well. Keep up the good work.

  2. Great idea – thank you for sharing! Just an idea for you for cloves – if you like orange tea, add some cinnamon and cloves while you steap it. It’s absolutely delicious and smells heavenly!! 😊💕

    1. Thanks for the tip, Sharon. I can’t smell, so I wonder if those cloves have any scent remaining after all these years. I’ll have to ask hubby to sniff for me. 😀
