Featured in one of the television shows about home-based business, polymer clay creations piqued my interest about almost two years ago.

I was always a fan of artsy and crafty works, and polymer clay was new to me then. With curiosity in mind and creativity at heart, I “googled” everything I could search out of polymer clay until I found reliable suppliers and other clayists. I was inspired with how detailed  and beautiful the end products are and at the same time, I thought, I could make some money out of it.

Using ordinary clay made for kids, I started out and practiced “sculpting.”

Amused, I found myself really enjoying it.

After a few weeks, I decided to buy oven-baked polymer clay, its tools and accessories. Unfortunately, last year’s habagat caused flood in our area, and yes—my beloved polymer clay was soaked in waste water.

Nevertheless, my not-so-recently found hobby continued until this little Mr. made its way to get noticed by friends. Some of my friends and relatives placed orders…and that’s how it all started.

Alas!

After years of frustration, herewith is my very first “finished” portrait. I used a picture of my one year old niece as a model. Of course the result is not that good and neither does it look like her but I’m proud that I was able to finish it as most of the drawings that I made were half-done.

This is the first drawing I posted here and I know I need a lot of practice. My daily notebook of to-dos, an ordinary pencil, 8B Staedtler and Pilot eraser are the materials I used.
