Creating Cupcakes made of clay TUTORIALS for YouTube.

I'm getting ready to film some miniature cupcakes, made of polymer clay- how to videos for YouTube. I hope this makes some of you happy! I'll even show some of my frosting and icing sculpting techniques!

Amber Dawn's ultra quick YouTube demo/tutorial, how to make a polymer face cane.

The silent version.
No music, a bit longer and High Def.
In honor of International Charm Day, in the spirit of sharing, I created a short video.
A demonstration/tutorial on how I create face canes out of polymer clay.

Even if you are not interested in working with polymer clay you can view this video to get a sense of what I do, some of the steps I take order to create some of my work.

Here is the link to see it on YouTube.

Share the link with anyone you think might enjoy watching and be sure to see my other videos too! They are MUCH better than this one! (this is my first tutorial and will rig the camera more stably next time!)

Micro Electric Man

                                              He's a cute little guy playing with electricity!

Click on the photos for a closer look!

He's a bead!
Made of polymer clay. :o)

 Here is is on my pinky nail (above) to show scale... And down below on my fingers...
I haven't baked him in the oven to harden yet... Once I do, I plan on making a necklace with him on it as a charm.

I just saw, The Notebook for the first time.

What a story!

The film was ever so slightly vapid but mostly gloriously colorful and full of FUN!!!

I had no idea the movie would be like this. It was nothing like I expected it to be.

Unless you are made of stone you will cry, mostly towards the end so have a tissue box with you or one sheet of Bounty (paper towel)! But it isn't a bad type of cry. It's a good and healthy kind. The kind that reminds you that you have a heart!

I cannot tell whether I will see this movie again. For me it was enough to see it just once. But that is how I feel about it now after just seeing it.

Perhaps, after some time passes, I may want to see the beautiful cinematography and lovely scenery once more.

The movie is a strong reminder of how precious and strong the human spirit is when faced with choices of the heart.

:::two thumbs up and one sheet of Bounty paper towel!:::

I took some time between my work to "doodle" with the clay. Here is a small sample of what I made during my free time...

 A little birthday cake. See photos below for scale.


This is a single edge industrial razor blade that it is sitting on to show the scale.

A little clown face cane. *<:o)

Ordering alterable bezels!

I am placing an order with the manufacturer that I get bezels from. Since I need to order 10,000 of each size I am going to retail & wholesale the bezels. They are not rusted, but can be by you! 
I would like to know if there are any interested artists and designers who would be interested in purchasing some.
