I have actually made an art journal with a polymer clay cover, but I would love to try the techniques in the book.


I have a great collection of paper ephemera that I plan to make into an altered book in the new year. What a great idea to create a particularly distinctive cover to go with it!

And I love the concept of a dowel or twig or plastic tube or...binding.

Many thanks for the inspiration!

I love making my own journals, but I"ve never tried to combine journal making with polymer clay... I love the technique you've shared and would love an opportunity to win this book!


Polymer clay has only been medallions or embellishments on my journals and books. I'd love having some new ideas and plan to try the one you shared. Thank you so much.


What a fantastic project, and so inspiring. I have been enjoying various types of book binding and would love to try this one out.
Thanks for the great instructions and inspiration.


I do love making and altering books and journals. No, I have never used polymer clay in any of my books or journals but after reading this article I would love to try. I would also love to own that book!

This is awesome! I love to make journals and artists books but have never done anything with polymer clay. I can see from this article that I'm going to have to give it a try.

I love to make my own journals but hadn't thought of using polymer clay for covers. I will definitely be trying this and the binding is also cool.


For my favorite journal, I decided the cover was too plain. I searched my stock of miscellaneous crafts and found a polymer face I made in middle school. I cut a hole in the cover of the book, and fastened her to the cover. It makes it hard to put in a book shelf, or to stack, but I never have trouble finding it because it really stands out.


very cool! Haven't tried this yet!
