Hair Twist Tutorial is Fun and Easy the Kids will Love this one

I have been making these hair twists for years. They are fun and easy to make and look so cute in your hair. This is a great projects to involve the kids in and even makes a fun activity for parties and get togethers. You don't need many tools just add some texture and a little color to jazz it up and they are ready to go. We added texture with the metal tools and the graduated aluminum rods. You can find them both in our shop.

Suzanne's Journal and Necklace

Suzanne Ivester, the artist known as The Polymer Chef (perhaps you've read her column in PolymerCafe magazine?) has created two fun projects for you to enjoy this month.

This journal was create with the Snails in the Garden silkscreen, Fancy Border Cutters, and Mini Bling mold. Look at what you can create with a few simple tools and an old boring notepad!

Then she went on to create a pretty Mokume Gane style necklace. She used the Circles press stamp and snowflakes mold to make this.

Suzanne will be posting more instructions about the techniques she used on her blog, The Polymer Chef.
