Have you noticed that artists tend to look at things a little bit differently than other people?
Thank goodness for that! I think the world would be a boring place if we all thought the same way.
Sometimes you just need to look at the everyday objects around you with a different point of view to find new possibilities.
I went into my kitchen looking for new texture tools and discovered three different spices that make beautiful textures and texture sheets for polymer clay.
Btw, once you’ve used your spices on clay I would not recommend cooking with them! They’re craft supplies now.
Polymer clay is not toxic, but it still doesn’t seem like a good idea.
Tools and Materials:
- Whole star anise pods
- Cinnamon sticks
- Whole cloves
- Two-part molding putty (this video gives more detail about using silicone mold material)
- Acrylic roller
- Clay blade
What other things can you find in your cupboards or pantry to use for making texture? If you come up with something fun, please share in the Keepsake Crafts Create Facebook group.
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
