Polymer clay? Why not!

Before the glass cutter gets delivered by Amazon, I am playing with clay, transfers and paint today. So, along with painting some more trees today, that makes five projects I've got going on today! Six, if you include posting my blog.

My first experience was with the Raffine sketchbooks. I decided to buy the packages of large sheets because I like to bind my own art journals.

It does need to be stored flat, like all art papers.
