Coming in at #4 is a post we ran on April 9, 2015. It was titled Polymer Clay Inspiration. I must admit, this one was awfully juicy! It is packed with tutorials as well as lovely inspiration. Enjoy!
Polymer Clay Inspiration Recap:
In my opinion, polymer clay does not receive the attention that it so deserves. Polymer clay is polyvinyl chloride that will harden when properly baked. It is a great art medium for mixed media jewelry artists to use with rubber stamps and acrylic paints. With this post I hope to inspire you to open your mind to the possibilities.
Mary Lynn Maloney did this how-to video for us some time ago; however, it is still a great video showing how to texturize polymer clay with rubber stamps and how to colorize with acrylic paints.
