Scented Polymer Clay

There was this topic in the Etsy forums where someone was asking if you could color polymer clay with koolaid? It got me thinking...would the koolaid scent the polymer clay too? I have never tried to scent polymer clay, but with all the polymer clay food creations out there, wouldn't it be fun to add a scent to them?

I found some great info on the topic of scenting polymer clay on the glass attic website (one of my very favorite polymer clay information resources) under "SMELL-Y Inclusions".

I think that I will be using ground cinnamon in my first attempt at scenting polymer clay. This is mainly because that is what I have on hand. The cinnamon scented clay would be really great for making gingerbread men, houses, etc... The texture that the cinnamon might add would work well too. I might try the koolaid also. I will let you know how it goes.
Anyone else have any tips? ideas?
