The June edition of Polymer Cafe has achieved a very nice variety of projects!

There’s the unique use of a polymer clay covered ostrich egg to create a hot air balloon by Laura Schiller,  the intriguing and personal mixed media story boxes by Maureen Carlson, and an organic and elegant necklace made with mosquito mesh by Iris Mishly.    Lisa Renner and Tricia Dewey share an article on using alcohol inks on polymer clay to achieve some surprising results.

There are  fantastic pictures of the 25 finalists in Staedtler, Inc’s “Bottles of Hope” challenge,  and some truly stunning work in the Reader’s Gallery.   I was also thrilled to see that the “Reflections” challenge results included work from the next generation of clayers!  Seven year old Alex Buangsuwon’s work is showcased.
