Polymer Clay Hooks

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen the crochet hooks covered in polymer clay? I saw some on Etsy and they are really pretty. They were at http://www.divadea.etsy.com

Those are neat. It's amazing how they can make all the neat designs in the different colored clay. Mine aren't pretty, but I put clay on all my metal hooks now. It is much easier on my hands, especially when I can form the clay to fit my hand fairly well.

Those hooks are sooooo tempting! I love my Susan Bates bamboo handle hooks, so much easier on my hands. Now, to find some polymer clay to "chunk up" the rest of my handles :yay

Cool! Polymer clay looks like a lot of fun. It's amazing how many different kind of effects you can get with it. I may have to put that on my to-do project list. Thanks for sharing! :D

Looks like a good idea. Maybe I will try it.

Would you need to put some kind of finish on the clay to keep it from getting dingy from the oils in your skin?

Gotta go back to doing some polymer clay items. These are a great inspiration. TFS ... I was just showing them to DH. He didn't know about polymer clay; but loves to work in clay. We may have a couples craft here! :lol

I just recently made a handle for two of my hooks. I've never worked with polymer clay at all before so obviously these weren't made for art's sake XD.

The first time I tried it didn't work--I managed to buy clay that was hard as a rock and wouldn't soften no matter what I did. The brand I used and worked fine is Sculpey III brand clay. Put me back $1.99 at Michaels. Go ahead and give the clay a little squeeze in the store to make sure you'll be able to condition it. I marked the handle at the end with a pin so I'd remember the size.
