    >Thanks Trina! The cup of coffee really is the most important step….everything else doesn't go right without it!

    >You do so many cute things with polymer. I didn't know you could color with chalk before baking. My youngest has been making gifts for friends this year again with polymer clay and figured she was going to have to paint. (which she still might because it's already been baked!) I'll have to share this with her. Thanks!

    >Kath – Yes…if something is pre-baked, it must be painted. BUT before it's baked you can add the artist chalks. Be sure to seal it however after it's baked.

    Loved these so much I had to make my own. They turned out great even the 1st time! Thank you so much. q* How do you keep the backs from ending up flat? I sanded mine, but am hoping you might have a tip??

      You can place your ornaments on fiberfill and then bake them (instead of a tile). I just “set” my gently on the tile and end up with just a “spot” where they were against the tile, but mine didn’t have flat backs. Did you “squish” them onto the tile and then bake them?
