2021 Polymer Clay Challenge – Week 2

By | 15th Jan 2021

A miniature vintage telephone, 2.9cm high for week 2. 

I followed a tutorial by Maive Ferrando to make this telephone and had loads of fun in the process. I love following tutorials because I learn so much! 

I also tried something I’ve never done before. Last year someone mentioned in the polymer clay challenge group that she uses her hairdryer to harden small pieces of clay. So, I wondered if I can do the same with my craft heat gun. I Googled and found a tips and tricks article by Ginger Davis Allman from The Blue Bottle Tree where she wrote about using a heat gun.

Of course, I had to try it, and it worked!!! I was super excited about this! It opens a whole new world for me. Now I can cure small pieces of clay and don’t have to switch the oven on just to bake a piece for 5 or 10 mins! I can’t wait to use this more often. My craft heat gun is now permanently plugged in on my table…ready to use. 🙂
