  • how to add metal frame to the polymer clay slab
  • how to emboss polymer clay slabs on the back
  • how to accurately divide polymer clay into identical pieces to form a geometric pattern

Now let's get started! By the way, if you don't like to watch the video, there is a step-by-step picture instruction at the end of this article.
