Nice news! I’ve been invited by the International Polymer Clay Association to make a piece for an Exhibition in Baltimore, Maryland in February 2010. They encourage exploring polymer clay mixed with other media and this fits in perfectly for me as I will be able to explore relations between my life time hobby and my current passion. I have only just started; I've made a few experimental samples and I managed to send the info detailing my project within the established date. Yay! I have already received confirmation, so now I have until November to explore, experiment and define a final piece for the exhibition.
