Well, ladies, you will find as soon as you start to play with it that you are amazed how easy it is to work with!!!
I created the matchbox pendant ornaments last year on my first try.
You can cover boxes, create charms, shape beads, use molds (I LOVE the ones that Michaels carries for polymer clay), stamp on it (Stazon inks), etc! You can shape flowers or strips of fun embellishments too. Warning, its addictive. I even bought a pasta press just to use with polymer clay so I could get those fun flat sheets to then stamp and cut to what I wanted and wrap it around things like matchboxes.
(Yes, then bake them wrapped around the box.)
I got my pasta/clay press on ebay I think for $15 or such. Worth it.
Enjoy playing and come back and let me know how many spots you want... I know you will want them...
