About the Artist
Welcome to my site about crafting with clay mediums, my name is Amber. I’ve been using clay in various forms since 2012. My favorites are polymer clay and precious metal clay.
When I first started, I was making small sculptures of caterpillars, frogs, and other creepy crawlies out of polymer clay. After sculpting the figures, I would painstakingly paint as many of the tiny details that I could with acrylic paint before sealing the piece with Varathane.
I moved on to playing with faux glass techniques after I became enamored with lampworking. Since I didn’t have the studio space or the means to get the equipment to work with real glass at the time, I spent hours trying to imitate the medium using something I did have access to – polymer clay.
It took me nearly a year to figure out how to make my hollow beads! My faux glass polymer clay tutorials were showcased by Cynthia Tinapple on Polymer Clay Daily back in 2014 after I finally figured out how to create hollow glass-like forms. Neither my original Facebook page or Etsy shop are active anymore, but I’m still crafting with clay all these years later. The Etsy shop that I made specifically for polymer clay tutorials can be found here: Craft with Clay. I also sell my tutorials on my own website: Polymer Clay Tutorials
