Experimenting with Polymer Clay - Book Cover

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While I was browsing through various book-making sites and my own stash of books, I came across a clay-covered book cover and got the itch to make one for myself.
I had no idea what a huge 'industry' it has become since my first introduction into this medium when my children were toddlers. I am beginning to add some links on my sidebar of Polymer Clay Artist sites.
Here's a few photos of my first 'newbie' attempts - obviously I've no skill at this, and can't see pursuing it much further, but I certainly enjoyed the process.

I love what you did with it. I've been using it with my art dolls. Recently, I discovered another product that I have been using for decorative additions and that's paperclay. It's even nicer to work with. You can find it in the same section of Michael's. :)Bea

Looks wonderful! It never occured to me to make multiple pieces then combine them into one.

This gives me a great idea for a future swap project! *the wheels are turning in my head, lol*

A really nice book cover. Looks like you have lots of rubber stamps to choose from.
