Polymer super power

Gummert extrusions on PolymerClayDaily.com

It’s true, happiness can sometimes be found in an empty Cheez Whiz jar.

Iowa’s Lynne Rutter Gummert swears that she doesn’t know exactly what she’s doing but what comes out of her extruder shows that she understands more than she admits. 

Gummert's Klimt-like extrusions on PolymerClayDaily.com

Her colors are Klimty and bright. She mixes and matches a selection of extruded patterns. Slices are applied to a glass form that gets popped into the oven and emerges as a treasured desk accessory.

It’s a no-fail approach and a daily reminder of the her creative super power. Do you have a treasured piece that reminds you of your polymer superpower?

    Thank you, Cynthia, for the your kind words! It is true, I have only been working with polymer clay for about 6 months. I also crochet and wanted to add poly clay to my metal hooks to make crocheting easier on my hands….well….I haven’t done much crocheting since. LOL
    This project uses canes from my FIRST attempt using an extruder. Had a blast!
    Thank you, again, for featuring me….I am humbled by this…

      I’m Lyn’s sis and she is awesome and creative!! Her crochet projects are loved by her family. I’m so impressed with her ability to take a new idea (the polymer clay for her crochet hooks) and run with it.

        Way to go, Sis! So proud and love how you take an idea and run with it!
