Polymer independence

The Orange County, California guild pulled out their red, white and blue polymer to help celebrate this flag-waving Independence Day weekend.

Guild member Cassy Muronaka explains how an inchie swap is a democratic art activity, “Newbies can go toe-to-toe with more experienced polymer clay artists, because creating a one-inch piece of art that probably will be used in a mosiac isn’t that big of a brain drain.  If you want to go crazy and make a tiny little masterpiece, you can.  But designing the inchies does not have to suck up a large chunk of your life, and the challenge that is presented to your creative muse is relatively modest.”

Flags abound on the Internet this week. Florida’s Sarah Berman displays a heap of polymer patriotism with the stars and stripes on her Etsy site. This bangle is a favorite. Have a grand weekend.

    I had just come back in from putting out the flag this morning, to find these beauties. Lovely inchies and inspiration for the worktable today.

    And way to go, Sarah! Congratulations on your PCD feature, my friend. Your canework is awesome. I’m so happy for you!

      Hooray for our guild but boo that the top line was omitted where My Inchie resides.
