In a Bubble of Creative Bliss

Been having such fun today! It is now after 2 a.m., I've been in a bubble of creative bliss and time got away from me, again. Same thing happened with the Faux Glass Tutorial a few months ago. This time I got some supplies and used them to try some of the techniques in the Organic Beads Tutorial, and Rustic Beads Tutorial. Your tutorials are just great; clear verbal instructions and photos for each step, so helpful for a visual learner like me. Thanks for all the info at Blue Bottle Tree and in your tutorials. They have so advanced my creative journey in this medium.

Polymer Clay Essentials is an excellent Ebook. It has a wealth of information, and provides a "go to" for any level of Clayer. Ginger presents the information in a clear and concise manner and the information flows well. I highly recommend this book for any Clayer who enjoys learning!

Easy to follow, and very informative

Hi - just wanted to say that I tried your sea glass tutorial and it worked out very well, easy to follow and very informative. I’m a complete beginner, so that’s pretty good! Thanks for all your great helpful emails!

So grateful for this resource!

As a very novice clay worker, I am finding Ginger's "essentials" book so helpful! Her tips and advice are invaluable, and I find myself running back to her book for just in time learning and questions that I have as I embark on my polymer journey. I am so grateful for this resource!
