A little bit of a BIG project: Tutorials and Givaways

Good morning good folk of the globe! How are your projects going?

Now you might have seen that I dabble in Polymer Clay here on the old blog from time to time...."dabble"...who we kidding there Jane?..your nick name is Clay Fingers McGee!

Well, you know how much I love polymer clay and the fact that I am always trying to get you folks to use it in your projects, then you can imagine my excitement when the makers of Sculpey, Polyform Products asked me to create a project for them!!!!   Woooooooooooppieee!!!

A fantastic lady I am in touch with at Polyform Products sent me a little starter package..don't pass out when you see it..like I did!

 Ahhh that new clay smell!
 
Now I don't want to completely spoil the project but I will give you a sneak peek of my work in progress, this is just the start of the foundation..
 
So..amongst the class I am teaching, the tower build, trying to finish Undersized Urbanite and HBS Contest...I am creating what I can only tell you will be a masterpiece crafted in a rainbow of Sculpey Polymer Clay.
 
At the end of this project in May you will be able to see my tutorial on the Sculpey Website.
 
And since I will be in the mood and crafting I thought we could have a little giveaway or two to go with this venture, so that some of you can enjoy that new clay smell for yourselves ;)
_______________________
Thank you fine folks for all your support and comments, I appreciate them and want to share this with those of you who always have a kind word!
 
I will update with info in a couple of weeks.

  17. I'm sure you will transform that square blocked clay in something magical and unique like everything else you make!! Well....if Polyform wants you to do some work for them, then it's only fair that they sent you that huge package of clay!!! Well done Jane in being published in their website when you will be finished with that project. I'm really looking forward to see what you will make with all that clay and millions of people will see your projects on the Polyform website.....WOW!!! You go girl!!!! Hugs!!

  18. YAHOOOO FOR YOU, JANE!!!! I am so stoked that they have asked you to do a polymer clay project!
    Who Better? I think that this is such a Fantastic Fanaticus opportunity and I know that you will "Knock their socks off!"
    Your other teaser of a miniature nature appears to be incredibly interesting too! I hope it is a garden of earthly delights using your wonderful imagination or should I call it "Claymation" hahahha

  19. I'm so excited Jane. What a great package to receive and I just know you will create something special with all these goodies. I look forward to seeing what you do with it. Thank you also for the link to the Sculpey website. I've just had a look at some of the projects and pictures of what people have made. How inspiring. I have not done a lot of work with polymer clay to date but it is something I really would like to master because of the endless possibilities.

  27. I love to work with oven clay too. In Germany we got "Fimo" Sculpey is not easy to find here, and if you find it, it is VERY expensive. I am one of the few women that always have very warm hands an so I often have to make a half hour break if I work with Fimo otherwise it will be too mushy in my warm hands.
    I´m looking forward to see the project you`ll make about this generous gift! Enjoy it!
    Hugs
