I like the results! Not sure my fingers would like getting stabbed though. -I have been playing around with polymer clay too but focused on blending and matching colors...Have fun, am glad it seems to be working for you;)
Thanks Lisa. I need to follow some of the advise in the link to Celie Fago's blog post. I'm going to get a leather thimble (or 2) and use a towel to help support my hands as I carve. I think those pluse more experience will stop the problems I had with hurting my fingers.
