This week instead of making an entire jewelry project, I’m going to show you how to make your own beads. These are faux lampwork and made with polymer clay and liquid clay.
It’s a fun technique to experiment and practice with. I still have ideas for how to get even more of a glassy shine. Will get back to you when I’ve done some more playing!
Here are the supplies used to make these beads:
- Premo Sculpey Polymer Clay-White
- Kato Liquid Polyclay clear
- Bead Cores
- Alcohol Ink-Sailboat Blue
- Embossing Heat Tool
- Alcohol Ink-Citrus
- Alcohol Blending Solution
You can watch the Faux Lampwork Polymer Clay Tutorial video over at YouTube.
