Spice Things Up!

Today I want to share with you my latest experiment.  Now this is in no way something new that I have come up with, I read about this quite some time ago. But I finally got around to trying it for myself. I'm talking about adding inclusions in polymer clay.  And the inclusions I chose were straight out of my spice cabinet.

All you need is some translucent polymer clay and some spices! Mix your spices into the clay, shape it, bake it and you're done!

Here is what mine turned out like. I love the earthy colors!  Oh, and they smell good too.

From left to right, ground cloves, pumpkin pie spice, ground allspice, ground ginger, ground turmeric, paprika, dill weed and ground sage.

And that dark brown one on the left, that one has coffee grounds mixed in.  That one is my favorite I think.

I haven't decided if I will make something with these or just list them as is.  They would make a great necklace for a chef or anyone who loves to cook, don't you think?

Well, that's all for now. I think I will go make some more. See ya next time......
