I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to make a bracelet and haven’t had a blank here for me to use. I have an empty cardboard tape roll that I use in my mixed media and it fits my wrist with a bit of room so I thought hmmmmmmmm….I can make as many blanks as I want out of AMAZING MOLD PUTTY!!!!!!
So here is what I did. I took my AMP and mixed quite a bit of it. I then pushed my empty cardboard roll in it and let it set. It literally takes 10 minutes.
You can see when I mixed my resin I used a silver colorant and poured a bunch of molds so I had a choice of what I wanted on my bracelet. Now you can wrap the bracelet with whatever you want to and as many different textures or colors but I used eyelash yarn in rust.
As I wrapped it I use hot glue to tack every 10 wraps or so just for extra security. I then decided what piece I wanted to use as the main focus on the bracelet.I decided the Victorian woman would be the choice for this one. I hot glued her on and then used perfect pearls to colorize her and highlight her to match the yarn.
Now you can paint the cast or whatever you want. Its hard to get the best picture with the lights on the shining face but in person it is so beautiful! I can make so many different kinds now and wear with my outfits and use whatever theme I want! Your imagination is the only thing that can stop you with this great product!
I have to admit it – I am a book addict, but I get really excited when it comes to checking out new Arts or Craft books. I just love seeing people’s fresh ideas and the art they can come up with. But, while every Arts and Crafts book has something to offer, not all of them are really worth the rather costly price tag that’s so often stamped on the jacket. But for the most part, for every book that I am disappointed in, I tend to find dozens that make me want to delve back into many times over for inspiration and ideas.
Polymer Clay Master Class by Judy Belcher and Tamara Honaman fits in the latter group. This book is going to go on my “go-to” book shelf. Not only is it fantastic eye candy, but Judy, Tamara, and the rest of the featured artists provide a treasure trove of fantastic techniques using different mediums on a wide number of projects. Polymer Clay Master Class allows you to get up close and personal with the 11 master artists who are included in the collaboration and the most beautiful Art they come up with using Polymer Clay.
The book includes five different lessons and sixteen guided projects that I believe are accomplishable for any level of polymer clay artist. Whether you want to make figurines, jewelry, or other works of art in Polymer Clay, this colorful and exciting book offers an endless resource for inspiration and guidance. You’ll learn from the masters how to do cane work, skinner blends, polymer clay carving, and so much more and best of all, the book not only provides you with the basics you need to know, but then it shows you the incredible results you can achieve by putting them into action.
Polymer Clay Master Class is published by Potter Craft through The Crown Publishing Group and it’s priced at $22.99. It’s a beautifully made book featuring 160 colorful and informative pages and it’s sure to become one of your favorites, just like it is mine. they also have a facebook page here
