As I say on the other example pages, I work in Polymer Clay. The examples are polymer clay and the description of techniques are common terms used in working with polymer clay.
is a wonderful texture
Here it is, the polyclay is textured and antiqued with acrylic paint.
Not my best color choices...
Now this is cool. The textured sheet of polyclay is baked. Liquid Kato is rubbed on, then PearlEx powders(mica) are applied. This is heat set. Next layers of the Kato Liquid are applied and heat set until the surface is as
smooth as glass. Wow, I'm going to have to do more with this technique !
The picture just doesn't do it justice, this really shimmers.
This texture mica shifts (ghost image) very well.
Here it is on a pen. The textured pens feel great.
I cover the pen kit tubes with polymer clay, insert a dowel in the tube, and roll the tube across the texture sheet.
This same technique can be used for beads. Cover a baked base with raw clay, insert a wire through the bead and roll across the texture sheet.
