Oh sorry! XD I guess I just read it wrong! The tutorial was so awesome and easy to understand so the only trouble I had was that I didn't have some of the supplies |D

hey, thankyou! i'm really glad you like them :) TLS stands for 'translucent liquid sculpey', which is basically just clay but in liquid form! You can buy it in big bottles, usually just from wherever you buy your clay. There is also a Fimo version called Fimo Deco Gel, which is the same thing :D hope that helps you!

I love your work, it's amazing and I plan to follow your tutorials when exams are over and I can break out my clay :)
Just one question though: How come the clay pieces don't burn when you bake them a second time? Do you bake them for half the baking time each time, or do you bake them for the full time each time they go in the oven?
Thanks in advance, have a good day!

Thankyou so much! I'm so glad you like my work :) I have 3 months off from uni at the moment so hopefully I can put out a couple more tutorials for everyone... In response to your question, it is completely fine to bake clay many times over for the full time, as long as you allow it to cool between baking - it is even thought to make the clay stronger! So yes - bake them for the full time on your packet each time :) Hope that helps!

Great tutorial, but I'm curious, why not acrylic paint?

thankyou! :)
you can't use acrylics because they're water based, and when they're mixed with the clay the water evaporates and makes bubbles in the clay/makes the clay very brittle... oil paints are completely compatible with polymer clay, though :) or you could use alcohol inks, but i've never tried that!
