What better way to add some thickness and comfort by bulking up your handles with some colorful polymer clay? Make a set for yourself or a loved one.

Air-Dry Clay

I remember making things with air-dry clay as a kid, though nothing I made was really worth keeping. Lately, I’ve been noticing some beautiful things that can be created pretty easily with simple air-dry clay. It’s amazing that something can look like real porcelain or pottery that looks so impressive!

Polymer Clay Bracelets - Babble Dabble Do

Polymer Clay Bracelets

These colorful bangle bracelets would make a great Mother’s Day gift. There are so many ways to create your own, you’ll want to make a few for every arm! They were inspired by the bright colors of Sculpey clay and used bracelet molds and recycled tin cans to make them.

Sculptamold Fruit Bowls

I’m thinking about getting my hands on some Sculptamold to try out these pretty and natural bowls for my self. I love the look of the petals mixed in with the clay, and love how messy the process is! Even the mold used is natural – Ana used real fruit to create an imperfect shape with an interesting texture inside.

Thank you Ana for the wonderful inspiration – we can’t wait to get our hands on some clay! Be sure to check out Babble Dabble Do for gorgeous kid’s crafts, design for kids, and science projects!

Directions:

Step 1: Draw a circle on cereal box with a compass and cut out a circle. Roll out your clay to about 1/4″ thickness and place as the circle template on the clay. Use your X-Acto knife to cut excess clay. With a little bit of water smooth the edges of the circle. Use a chopstick to make the hole and let dry.

2. Once the clay is completely dry sand the edges lightly. Paint the circle the color of your choice. Use the adhesive to paste book page onto clay.

3. Trace snowman onto tracing paper. I do this by taking a pencil and going over the lines on the back of the tracing paper then place the tracing paper right side up on to the gift tag and go over the lines with a pencil.

4. Use coloring pencils, color the sky blue, carrot nose orange, scarf green with red lines and cheeks red.
