A Gorgeous Line of Journal Books That Depict Imaginative Scenes Crafted From Polymer Clay

Sunset in the Garden

Artist Aniko Kolesnikova aka Mandarin Duck has created a gorgeous line of hand-crafted clay polymer journal covers that depict wonderfully fantastic scenes in rich and vibrant colors. In addition to the journals, Kolesnikova has created a series of instructional videos to share her love of polymer clay creation.

On my Youtube channel I really try to teach people how to make their own beautiful things, so that they don’t spend a lot of money, develop their skills, gain new abilities and discover new hobbies and materials. I honestly think that a handmade gift is worth a million since it contains that precious energy of love of a person that made it. So basically I teach people to gift love to other people and I think it’s great!
