mica stencils cover

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.

prismatic pendants

Here’s yet another surface effect for you that can be used in so many different ways. Today I used mica powders but I also experimented with embossing powders, which have a quite different look (more like ceramics) but are a little trickier to control.

You could also try making your deep impression, baking the pendant and then adding effects such as paints or alcohol inks. Then, if you like, you could sand over the top to reveal the original clay color.

Have fun experimenting with this technique!
