Using Cutters with Polymer Clay Try 1

I bought myself some of those baby cookie-cutters that you use with polymer clay and gave them a try last night. The plan was to stack 3 colors of blue clay and then cut a 3 colored bead.

It didn't work very well. The clay stuck inside the little cutters and had to be pushed out with the end of a pen. The end of the pen bent the disk into terrible shapes and left funky marks on the end.

I used a tiny 1/2 inch circle and a slightly larger 1 square.

So instead I rolled everything into balls and them mashed them with the end of the rolling pen.

They look OK but are a little boring.

I'm going to try again using starch as release on the cutters
