Polymer Clay Daily Just Let Your Creativity Flow
I've discovered something lately, when I just lose myself in what I'm creating, it seems to come out better. In other words, I don't plan the design beforehand, I just let it happen! Whatever clay scraps or canes are in front of me, that's what I use, it's a very relaxed approach. Most of the time I have the TV on, I am a big fan of I Love Lucy, so I watch a few of those episodes on the DVR, or there's always something interesting on HGTV too. This new, more relaxed attitude does have it's drawbacks, most of the time I have no idea how I made the piece- lol!
My latest project involves layering, with translucent clay, rainbow foils, and pearl canes made with Premo metallics.
After I bake the pendant & it’s hot out of the oven, I plunge it in a bowl of ice water. This seems to help with the clarity of the final product. After that, I start my sanding! I usually use about 3 different grades of wet sandpaper. I always follow that with a vigorous buffing on a microfiber dish towel. To complete the look I add a coating of Enviro-tex lite resin.
