The other day I got to thinking about different kinds of shapes that would make nice borders and edgings, and I couldn’t stop!
I love how one creative idea leads to another, then another, then another…
This video got started because I wanted some kind of beaded border for a project for my patrons.
(Insert shameless plug for Patreon here.) <<<grin>>>
Then I dug through my ribbon & cording scraps, my boxes of chain and went on to strands of beads, spacers and findings.
In the video I show how to make your own custom border molds and give tips for trimming your polymer clay borders after demolding.
Tools & Materials:
- silicone molding putty
- kitchen scale
- various chains, cords and strands of beads to make molds
- ceramic tile
- acrylic roller or pasta machine
- polymer clay
- Armor All
- long flat ruler
- clay blade
- craft knife
Let me know what other things you think would make good border molds.
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
