Hello! This weeks post will be about texturing polymer clay when making baked goods, such as cookies,cakes,cupcakes,and so on.
There are many tools you can find on hand to texture your polymer clay, with this guide i hope it can help you in your clay journey!
Notes: I am not a prorffessinal clay crafter. I am only sharing what i do as a clay crafter. This post does not mean all crafters use this style or technique.
The tools i’ll be talking about in this blog post:
- Tooth Pick
- Blunt Needle Tool ( Its a nail art tool thats pointy like a needle, but the tip is blunt).
- Needle Tool or just a sewing needle
- Craft Knife (The one that has a pointy tip, X-Acto is a popular brand)
- Toothbrush (get a brand new one from a dollar store, use it for crafting purposes only)
- Tin Foil Ball
- Sand Paper
Each tool can do different types of textures, from a crumbly cookie,a fluffy cake texture and so on. No tool can only do 1 type of texture, it depends on the way you use the tool to create texture.

Hello my friends! Today’s post will be about baking polymer clay. I’ve seen this question asked many times online. Often times new poly clay crafters will either underbake their clay or overbake their clay.
First off, let me disclose that i am not a processional clay crafter. However i want to share to you my clay journey so you don’t make the same mistakes i have, or learn something new entirely. Nonetheless, sit back and relax. This is going to be a long post!
Hello all! This is a statement necklace and matching earrings for a friend’s mother. It has a nature/outdoorsy theme to it. The piece took roughly 6-7 hours to create and put together. So many jump rings.
The necklace is my very first statement necklace that has a lot of little pieces to it. Overall i am very happy with how it came out and all the colors.
