Clay Craft

Tags:
clay, craft,

If you’re up to your ears in festive stickers, chipboard and ribbon and are desperate to try something new, polymer clay could be just the thing you’ve been looking for. The vibrant embellishments on Jane’s cards are made by stamping clay with a flower earring, cutting it to shape (don’t worry, a handy template is provided!), applying sparkling crystals, baking in the oven and then popping onto the card. Easy peasy! The bauble designs can even be removed and used as pretty hanging decorations, meaning that you can save bags of time and create a card and gift all in one go!

Gingerbread house

Tags:
christmas, clay, craft, fimo, polymer clay,

This irresistible gingerbread house and wintry scene created by Ellen Kharade has been constructed entirely out of polymer clay and would look eye-catching perched on top of a cake. The great thing about polymer clay toppers are that once baked, they last indefinitely and can be used year after year. Polymer clay is a much more forgiving medium than traditional sugar paste decorations as it allows you to take time and work in stages if required. As with all non-edible items designed for decorating cakes, we advise that the clay models are left out of the reach of small children.
