I'm constantly amazed by the seemingly limitless ability of the Silhouette machines.  If you've ever seen the amazing clay crafts cut and embossed with the Silhouette Curio you know what mean.

I have to admit I've had clay sitting in a drawer in my office for more than a year - ready to be cut with my Curio...but I've been a little nervous. Today I want to share with you a beginner Silhouette Curio clay tutorial!

The very talented Alexis from Persia Lou blog is not only a Silhouette genius, she is fabulously creative!  She shared a complete beginning to end tutorial on how to emboss clay with Curio to make earrings on her blog and you have to check it out! While you're there be sure to poke around - her ideas are always awesome and unique!!

  1. Has anyone tried cutting polymer clay with the Cameo 4?

  2. YAYYYY!!! Finally a tutorial using the Curio. This is my only machine. After a couple years of Silhouette U membership I decided to cancel because there was very little instruction on the Curio; and none using clay. Thank you so much!

  3. Thank you for the tutorial
    But I not going to buy a curio machine to make a pair of clay earrings I just purchased a cameo4 plus on your priorder page I was hoping you would be focus on that putting out information on that on the new features and so fort thank you Carolyn Connor.

  4. I'm new here and new to the Curio. Thank you for having instructions to get me started and acclimated to the machine. Obviously there are various different machines you can purchase and you seem to touch on all of them nicely. Thank you for all that you do here.
