Don't you love succulent plants? They are so easy to care for and need very little water which makes them perfect for planting in polymer clay. Polymer clay is waterproof so the water won't harm your clay. I show you how to make the cutest magnetic succulent planter today on Polymer Clay TV. Once you learn the technique the sky is the limit! Make them in all sizes and shapes they are so fun. Did I mention they are easy too! You don't need a lot of clay or tools just your imagination.
