The Polymer Arts has a magazine for professional and aspiring polymer clay artists ... by polymer artists for polymer artists. They also have a blog and a Facebook page. I was thrilled to see one of my pieces featured July 26 on their Facebook page and then realized I was part of their Design series on their blog. You can read more about "Mixing Elements" HERE.

One of the advantages to polymer clay is the ability to change (add to) a finished piece even after many years. The little gecko adds just the right amount of dimension I was looking for. So, for now it is going to stick around for a little while more.
