Polymer clay throwback Thursday is here and our first picture goes back to 1982. Although it is not a polymer clay Christmas ornament, it is made of polymer clay and it still looks the same as the day I made it.
For the past month I have been staying with my aunt in Connecticut. Just inside her front door hangs a wall plaque that says “Welcome Friends”. Way back in 1982, my father made the wooden plaques and I glued my polymer clay creations onto them. I only made about 100 of them. Too heavy and bulky to take to the craft shows, I decided to just concentrate on the smaller ornaments and jewelry.
This plaque got the honor to be the my first polymer clay throwback Thursday post because it appears to be indestructible. To be perfectly honest, I am amazed that the polymer clay pieces have not fallen off the plaque. And when they close the door, they slam it shut so that it locks. Cold weather, hot weather, high humidity…nothing affected it. And I used a glue gun to glue the pieces on. Maybe the glue was just better back then. Nowadays you can’t depend on glue guns to glue anything permanently.
So, here it is . Our first polymer clay throwback Thursday look back in time.
Hope you enjoyed this polymer clay TBT look into the past. As you can see, polymer clay will last a very long time!
Have a great clay day!
TBT will be back next Thursday. Who knows how far back we will go?
Till next time,
