Zen Garden Polymer Clay

Hello dear friends!

I’ve just finished this new tutorial and I have to tell you that clay never ceases to amaze me. I was going to make a pair of earrings with a variation of the mica shift technique, I stopped the camera and then I looked at all the scrap clay laying on my table. And I thought it was beautiful and it still had a lot of potential.

So I continued to cut smaller or larger pieces (I used the CreateAlong Scallop Border Cutter for some of the pieces and I loved the resulting pieces). And when I finished mixing and matching and cutting I ended up with an entire collection of clay beauties;)

I just can’t get enough of clay. It’s such a beautiful surprise.

Here is the material list with all the materials and tools:

So I invite you to watch the video and get inspired to create more using clay!

As I said, clay never ceases to amaze me. And I hope you feel the same about it too. I also wanted to tell you that the Buddha beads have no religious connotation, they just symbolize love and peace. Which is a message that I desire to express through my work. 

Have a beautiful day and happy claying!


P.S. Don’t forget that PCA 2021 is open for enrolment! I hope to see you in there!



  1. Beautiful, Mihaela! I love just how many ways one can reuse scraps in polymer clay. You’ve done a brilliant job with yours, and the results are eye-catching!

    1. Thank you very much, Anita, for your beautiful message! Normally I would put the scrap clay in a plastic sealed bag and keep it for other projects, but I could not decide to discard these pieces. They looked so beautiful. And I’m glad I kept working on them. Have a beautiful and creative day!

    1. Thank you, Inese, for your beautiful message! I can’t tell you how happy I was to read that you liked the result. Clay is my medium of choice to express my creativity. P. S. I love your paitings and I feel even more inspired when I see so much beauty created by your talented hands
