Thank you very much. I am really glad you like it.
It is quite wearable :) If the clay is baked properly - at required temperature during the required time - it becomes rubber-like, so it bends but does not break. Still the bracelet should not be used to nail smth and should be wore with some care :)
Thanks once again :D

Aaah, I see :) I would love to wear it! :love:
Its really impressive for me to see, whats possible :)
May I ask you how you bake the rubber-like clay? (how long and the temperature) I work with polymer clay too, but I always baked it the full time, so it gets very hard ^^

Thanks again :) I do not use some special type of rubber clay, it is FIMO classic that was used here. If it is baked properly, thin parts are never hard nor can be easily broken. They are bendable. For me the proper way to bake the clay is to put it into cool oven, set 120 C (instead of 110 recommended), bake it 15-30 mins (depending on the size of what you bake) and let it cool in the closed oven. This methods provides the most die-hard clay thingies :D
Also, it is important how the oven reaches the temperature. Some have steady heat at the level you set and this is best of all. But there are also ovens which heat up to 170C, then cool down to 90 for some time but the average temp is 110. And that is when the clay parishes :) Even if it is not burnt, it becomes very easy-to-break.
I hope my thoughts were clearly expressed )))

aaah thank you so much for this informations!
Thats very helpful for me :)
My oven has steady heat. I'm still learning how long I have to put the clay in it's as you say, it depends on the piece too.
You really let the clay cool down in the oven? I always put it out because I'm afraid to overbake it when I left it in the oven. *hmm* I will try this for sure :)

You are welcome :)
I found this thing about cooling down in the oven at one site (which i do not remember now). It contained many tests for clay durability, heat resistance, etc. And there was that advice and also a warning not to put hot pieces of clay just after baking into cold water. And i found it all very logical because e.g. if you heat a glass jar up to 110-120C and then put it into icecold water, it will crack. Physics law work for everything :) So i still follow these recommendations and i really feel that my clay things now are more durable and damage resistance than before ))
I am glad if was helpful to you :)

Thank you The whole period was smth about a week, but to say more precisely it took me 5-6 evenings and half a weekend See my spring bracelet with a snowman if you wish - i counted that 1 running centimeter of grass contains approx. 240 grass blades and it took me 30-40 mins to cover this centimeter with grass And all in all there are about 18 cm of grass ))
