Works in Progress

Some of my pumpkin creatures getting ready to grow bodies, leaves and vines. Done entirely in polymer clay over glass ornaments.


  1. DEBBIE THESE FANTASTICALLY WONDERFUL CREATIONS!!!!!can you tell I'm a bit excited, hahaha!! Did you make the canes especially for this art? I NEED to learn how to do polymer,how long would you recommend baking this and at what temp?Thanks in advance!!

  2. Oh my....they going to be ghoulishly great! Can't wait to see them 'all grown' ! :0)

  3. Oops, sorry, I don't check my blog daily, thanks everyone! I'm pretty new to blogging, and social networking other than Facebook, and I've only done that for a couple of years at the most. So, I don't check this often enough. Winter will make a difference when it gets here, I think.

    Flora, polymer clay usually bakes at either 265º or 275º And you bake it for 20-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the clay. There's some variations on the time, because you can bake it over and over again, as you add more raw clay to your piece, and some people think that when you bake it longer than the norm, it gets stronger. Not real sure about that though. Now I know for sure that this is the cane you were talking about at the HIve. You're so sweet, thanks for all your kind words :-)
