Two Great Polymer Clay Tips

I love to create.
I love to create tiny things.
I love to share information about things I create.
That's why I started the 4-1-1. It is a blog to share information about many of my passions and interests. Tutorials, links, suggestions and tips-that's why I'm here!

This week, I finished a tea cup garden which has become one of my favorites by far. It is actually not in a tea cup, but in a Sugar Bowl! I named it The Sugar Shack. I used Polymer clay as the base of the sugar yard and also to create tiny chocolate chip cookie stepping stones. 

I've been using polymer clay a lot in my tiny creations. I've played with polymer clay off and on over many years.

Two great polymer clay tips I NEVER KNEW until now:

Clean your hands with Hand Sanitizer! 

No more scrubbing and rubbing with soaps that don't do a thing. Just rub hand sanitizer into your hands, rub off the clay residue, and wipe with a paper towel. Then, wash your hands with soap and water.


Clean off finger prints with Rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip! really works! Rub gently, it doesn't take much.

Here's a photo of The Sugar Shack...isn't it SWEET?
