Tutorials for the
Polymer Clay Enthusiast
I have been creating ornaments for more than 40 years and selling them at craft shows. My medium of choice is
polymer clay, which I believe is one of the most versatile materials that artists can use in their work.


As the arthritis in my hands has become worse, I find that I can no longer produce enough inventory for my yearly
craft shows.  This year I will be doing only two.  My hands no longer permit me to make the many ornaments  I
need for craft shows but I am able to still create new designs and patterns which I enjoy  doing very much.  


I have decided to put all my years of experience and all the designs I have created into a series of PDF ebooks.
Welcome to Simply Ornaments
If you love to work with polymer clay and Christmas
is your favorite time of year, you have come to the right place.

In Volume 1, you will learn to make 50 assorted
Christmas ornaments from polymer clay.  Of course, you
can also use all the patterns if you work with salt dough,
bread and glue dough, or fondant for cake decorating.

All my ornaments are easy to make, but if you are a
complete novice, I encourage you to practice with the
beige Super Sculpey before you start with colored clay.
You will save yourself time and money.

All my tutorials have step by step illustrated instructions,
but even so, you may come to a point where you are not
quite sure what to do.  Email me at
maria@simplyornaments.com
and I will be happy to assist you.
Volume 2 takes you through lessons for 40 assorted family
ornaments.
If you plan to sell your creations, you must have family
ornaments that can be personalized.  They take a little time
to make but you can charge more for them.


Personalizing ornaments at a craft show is not difficult, but if
your sales are brisk,
you will be working hard the entire weekend!  Of course, that
is the goal.  If you sell online, be sure to offer
personalization.

I have designed all my ornaments so that they have a spot
for names and the year. If the customer does not want a
name, it does not diminish the look of the ornament.  I do
not charge extra for adding names but that decision is up to
you
Volume 3 is all about snow.

The little snowflake ornaments on the cover are a hot
selling item.

In my booth display, right at the front, I cover
a 3 ft. Christmas tree with about 100 of these snowflakes.
By the end of the show, the tree is empty!

All my tutorials have step by step illustrated instructions,
but even so, you may come to a point where you are not
quite sure what to do.  Email me at

Steampunk!

This volume has lessons for 20 Steampunk
ornaments.

If you like Steampunk, then make yourself some
ornaments for your Steampunk tree!  These
ornaments take a little more time and expense
because of the gears, cogs, and other
embellishments that give that  distinctive Steampunk
look.  

No two Steampunk ornaments are ever exactly alike
because of the variations in embellishments

Fun, fun, fun, to make!
