Fernanda Elizabeth: I've been working with polymer caly for 6 years.
pcPolyzine: How do you come up with an idea for a project—do you plan it or just start working?

Fernanda Elizabeth: All my work is related to flowers.
pcPolyzine: What are your favorite (or most important) tools you use when working with clay?

pcPolyzine: Do you have any advice for new artists to polymer clay?
Fernanda Elizabeth: My advice to new artists is to continue your work. There will be times when it may not be recognized, but for an artist, time and work is the most important thing.
