Kids Craft: Polymer Clay Day
I've included pics for your viewing pleasure, well not really, they are there so you can take a look at what you need and see a visual tutorial. I would have 'Vlogged' it but I don't want to hear my own voice and trust me you don't want to either....happy polymer clay day, enjoy!
Supplies: ●Molding Clay from your local craft store ($1.99 small pack of one color, or $9 pack of 12 different colors, you can also buy a pack of white and just paint it with acrylic paints after it's molded if you have some on hand and don't want to spend the extra money) ● Work Surface (I used an old left over ceramic tile) ●Something to cut the clay (I used a paint scraper because I didn't want any blades left around)●Something to bake the clay on designated for the clay and not food ever again(I used tin foil)
Step 1: You have to condition your clay, make it soft and pliable. To do that you press with fingers and roll into a ball in the palms of your hands, roll into a snake, and repeat that process until it's nice and soft. The kids will enjoy this part.
