How to make doll house miniature breakfast from Polymer Clay, by IGMA Fellow Betsy Niederer Before you start working with clay, please wash your hands – even if your hands look clean you’d be surprised how much dirt can be on them, and it will show up in your white clay. I also dust my hands with cornstarch or talc powder after washing and drying to get rid of any excess moisture, as well as bits of dust. Preheat your oven according to your clay directions. If you are using the new Fimo® formulation, please make sure that you check the baking temperature as this is lower than previously. If you are mixing new Fimo® with old Fimo® you need to use the lower baking temperature, so the mix doesn’t burn!

Granny Sweet Heart Pattern February is almost here. So I've been working on a crocheted heart that can be used for coasters or attached on a tie for cute wall buntings. After several starts and restarts, I finally came up with a design that I liked. There are several similar heart designs based on granny squares, but nothing that was working out for me.
