This is the first in a series of tutorials that explains in picture form how to make certain Polymer Clay items. There will be brief descriptions too... and questions and comments are always welcomed. The tutorials are my own and have not knowingly been copied from anyone else.

You will need the following: 1/6th of a block of 5 colours... choose colours that 'go' together. Round cutter about 1cm across. Blade. Extruder (Makins Clay). Pasta Machine or Rolling Pin. Tile to work on
