A small journal decorated with polymer clay and glass gems. The book was painted in acrylics and four separate polymer clay pieces were attached.

I'm so frustrated, I can't get a good photo of it....aarrgh! I'm waiting for my camera to recharge and I will try again.

That is so wonderful. It looks like a real spell book for a witch or wizard in a forest.

Its beautiful. I especially love the way you incorperated the gems and the roots look so realistic.

I know that in order for polymer clay to harden, it must be baked in an oven. Did you bake it seperately from the journal, or was it safe to bake the journal with it? Sorry if this question seems stupid, I'm just very new to polymer clay workings.

Thank you! I do bake the clay piece separately and adhere it to the book cover when it is ready. I've tried baking directly on the book with mixed, and sometimes disastrous, results. :)

OH MY GOD. I've been looking for something like this in stores (online and real life) :( do you think you could make a tutorial some day? And how did you get the clay to stay on so nicely? O: You have some serious talent!!!! It's so beautiful! :heart:
