The Polymer Arts magazine news

Ta da! The first issue of 2017 is coming out today (scheduled for 11am PST) and, I know I am usually extremely enthusiastic about every issue but this one has so many wildly passionate artists sharing their process and their secrets.

It is also the day I get to see […]


I’ve had this waiting for its final tweaks for nearly a week but, like half the Eurosynergy convention goers, I have been trying to rise up from the flu that knocked so many of us out. But I am now down to maybe 4 naps a day instead of 12 and got this done over […]

We interrupt this week’s looking at the ground for inspiration to being you the latest cover of The Polymer Arts magazine! This issue is not out yet, and although we would usually get this out to you by the end of May, it looks like it will be the first week of June, but we are […]
