***THIS IS A DIGITAL PRODUCT***
FOCUS ISSUES: Texture
In March of 2017, CreateAlong set out on a new adventure. We began publishing a monthly digital polymer clay magazine. At first, it was called Polymer Clay Universe. Fast forward, to when it was decided we would delve into the world of PRINT in addition to digital in 2019. Passion for Polymer magazine was born. Since that very first issue, we’ve strived to bring our readers a unique mix of tutorials and articles, at a variety of skill levels, from artists around the world. It’s been a pleasure sharing not only well known polymer artists, but also publishing emerging artists deserving of having their work shared with the world. Yet, we also know the needs and wants of creators change. Recently, challenges with supply chains effecting our printer caused us to have to revert back to digital only. But, what we are discovering is that “just a magazine” is not enough anymore to maintain subscribers, people want interaction, they want beyond what the magazine can offer. So, with pride in all we’ve accomplished with this magazine, it is time that we say goodbye to Passion for Polymer. Some of our wonderful contributing artists will continue to share their amazing tutorials in the monthly Creative Clay Club, and we welcome you all to join us there for not just these tutorials, but so much more.
Our final magazine issue focuses on texture. Our cover artist is Shelley Atwood. Her designs are incredibly artistic, wonderfully composed, and full of delicious color and texture. Read about her “finding kismet” with polymer clay, and see more of her work in this issue.The Polymer Chef creates a gorgeous “Texture to the Max” project. Klio Tsaliki creates an amazing bowl with organic texture. Anastasia Kondel has a fun pair of mosaic earrings. Luz Mendez shares a colorful floral slab just in time for spring. And, Sandy Huntress takes you on a texture treasure hunt. And of course, Jessica Hager shares a wonderful palette in The Color Corner.
As always, our Gallery has many unique projects to inspire you! Thank you to all who have participated in our monthly challenges! Our gallery has always been a favorite of our readers.
There are still MANY opportunities with CreateAlong for you to share your tutorials and ideas. You can submit your ideas to teach/share a tutorial at PolymerClayClub.com
Thank you for your support since we began this adventure, and as we move forward to a new creative journey which we hope you will take along with us.
