Need recommendation on polymer clay finishing/polishing techniques

I've been using an arylic varnish to bring the shine to my polymer clay creations but I'm finding that over time, they tend to either get sticky or they start peeling. Should I not use this method or is there a recommendation someone can give me on what they have found works best? Should I just polish and if so, how do you do that with polymer clay that has intricate detail without jeopardizing the detail? Thx so much.

New Book

There's a new book called "Jewelry Design" that's just being published in China written by Shannon Guo. I cannot read a word since it's all in Chinese, but it looks like a nice book with lots of good pictures. My work, along with that of a lot of familiar faces, is featured through out the book. The piece on the far right of the cover is one of my brooches.

Shannon Guo is Associate Professor, Jewelry and Metals Studio at the Fine Arts College of… Continue

Learning My Colors

Do you remember when you first learned about colors? I can’t be for sure, but I must have learned “my colors” from my father as he painted tiny little faces on his fishing lures. We would sit at our dining table for hours as he secured each small metal lure in a mini-clipped vice and then delicately created “alluring tiny faces” to attract the biggest of fish in the lake. I remember his determination at painting perfect little yellow circles within larger black or red circles for the eyes. Now,… Continue

Judge, Jury, and Executioner

Yep, that's me! Judge, jury, and executioner Stevie B! Or something like that...



Actually I've been asked to be a judge in another state for some sort of art grant. That's as detailed as I can get.



It's all mysterious and hush-hush I know but if a prospective applicant got wind of…

500 Plastic Jewelry Designs



Surprise!



When I heared the doorbell ring I did not expect it to be this book! I expected it to arrive sometime in September, at least that's when I heared it was to be mailed. Silly rumors.



I've only quickly checked out the book, somehow finding the page my piece is on, but so far so good. Like Disney World a Lark 500 book needs at least a few days to see everything.



Now if only I would finally receive some sort… Continue
