In today’s video I show a fun technique for surface effects on polymer clay. Although putting pigment through a stencil seems fairly basic, there actually are quite a few small details to attend to and understand in order for your pieces to come out as nice as possible.
Throughout the video I give several tips and tricks to make sure your stenciling is crisp and clean, your blending is smooth and that you have no stray powders in places you don’t want them.
Those of you who are my patrons can go to Patreon.com/sandysewin for some bonus footage of pieces that I didn’t show the making of in the public tutorial.
