Oh what fun to finally have a crack at playing with polymer clay, DUKIT make and bake from New Zealand is what Ive used. Ive been heavily influenced by the wonderful book MIXED MEDIA MOSAICS by LAURIE MIKA and boy does she have some wonderful art pieces along with some great tips in her book.I highly recommend it for some fun.This was my first attempt made with pearl DU-KIT with grape and silver mica powders. Ive used zettiology stamps and image ( dont we all love zetti stuff ). All embellishments are glued on after baking.
This one below is translucent clay with silver and Grape mica powders with pearl used for the centre face.I left this one with a uncoloured back wich gives it a very transparent look.
Hmmm...this one still needs some work.... Did a double layer of black DU-Kit with range of different copper and gold mica powders. Again using zetti stamps and artchix wings and crowns and lots of eyelets( luv eyelets).I tried making my own little pendants but really need to work on my skill , to take more care with the details ( pop air bubbles and dont squish the detail out of your clay face ) It doesnt take much to burn in a toaster oven either ( see left oval has scorch marks on the bottom rim) and found that baking for shorter burst stopped the clay bubbling and burning.
More fun that cooking food I say.....yep, family starving while I cook polymer clay....
