Hummingbird polymer clay tutorial – [Use your scrap clay challenge] – Day 1

Hello dear friends!

First of all I wanted to wish you a beautiful and creative year in 2019!
It’s the start of a new year and we all have hopes, resolutions and expectations for this new year and I really hope we’ve learned from past lessons and that we’ll do better this year. In line with this idea of the chance to start anew, I want to challenge you to use your scrap clay and make room for the new.
