Before I toot my own horn, I wanted to salute a few people that have given me much support and knowledge. First, if you don't belong to a guild, I suggest you look for one and join. The guild that I belong to, Arizona Polymer Clay Guild, has been a wealth of knowledge to me. We have many talented artists that belong to our guild. These are creations from some of the members. These members have been in the guild since before I joined. They have been an inspiration to me. Quite of few our members have been published in PolymerCafe.
The next person that has given me inspiration is Cindy Lietz from Polymer Clay Tutor. Every week, Cindy comes out with a great video on a new technique that she has created (as well as color recipes). For those that are new to polymer, I would suggest you become a member of Polymer Clay Tutor. I have learned a lot from Cindy and continue to do so. She is talented, helpful and very supportive. I have also made a lot of friends on her website and members are quite helpful in sharing information about polymer clay.
Now for the good news...my steampunk plaque made runner up in the May Steampunk Challenge in PolymerCafe! This is my first time in this publication and it is due to the many polymer clay artists in my guild and Cindy who have supported me and inspired me. So, Thank You All!
