Week 6: A Precautionary Tale

To get really great results you have to watch the variables of your work. For polymer clayers, the oven you cure in is one of those! I lucked out and there’s a regular old oven to use at work… that needed calibrating. Instead of tucking a few nuggets of pale coloured scrap clay in to test with I put a tray of production beads in. And they ambered.


You can’t really tell ’cause they’re on a yellowish counter but the beads themselves should have a white cast and instead they have a cute, vintage-y tone. This is better than the ones I did in my previous oven which is affectionately named Scorch.


And, because it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Heart beads!
