Try using nitrile gloves to prevent the wrinkled hands. They are stronger that latex and you can get a box of 50 for under $10.00 at Harbor Freight. Or you can get them from any Auto parts store.

Excellent and beautiful pens, Melanie.

I nominate Melanie to showcase her work at the next Minnesota Chapter gathering.

Toni Ransfield might be able to give you a few more pointers here and there, she's our resident polyclay wizard, but it looks like you have a great deal of experience under your belt already! :)


Gorgeous work ... you will probably want to give them a CA (superglue) finish to help protect the polyclay from everyday dents and dings, and that can also be polished up to a glassy shine that will really make your artwork pop!

You'll fit right in, then, because we're pretty much clueless.

LOL, I just took a sip of my honey and lemon tea when I read this and it almost came out my nose, I admit I dribbled a little HAHA. Thankful my computer isn't wearing it. Funny stuff! I will check it out though, thanks for the giggle.
