MakerCamp: Polymer clay medallions

Clay medallions
Google and MAKE have partnered to host an online summer fun camp, with a new project every day for the summer. Today, it's my turn to give a workshop on polymer clay, a modeling substance my kids and I have grown to admire. Here's a link to my instructions, here's a link to my article about polymer clay.

Tune in to the +MAKE page at 2PM PST/ 5PM EST to watch the Hangout On Air with me and Camp Director Nick Raymond. Once the Hangout starts, you will be able to ask us questions and contribute to the conversation by typing in the comments section.


  1. There’s also Precious Metal Clay, which is basically the same idea, but with silver or gold instead of PVC….

  2. My son and I tried this recently.  It’s really cool how well the colors can be mixed to make your own colors.

    I understand there’s a clear kind you can get, but I haven’t tried it yet.

  3. Cool medallion, but WHY for the love of mods does a fan have a 14pin connector.

  4. Mark, this is awesome and I totally *love* the Maker Summer camp idea. However, I’m having a devil of a time finding projects I can do with my intelligent, but pre-reading, pre-full motor control, 3.5-year old toddler. All of these “great things to do with your kids” project will be *awesome* in about two years. Any ideas or resources for what to do with him now that are along the same lines as the stuff your normally post? What do other geek dads do with their youngest?
