This tutorial shows you how to make a crackled focal bead pendant out of polymer clay and frame it in sterling silver. This bead is very smooth and lightweight. Colorizing with inks is very simple and can give you beautiful results.
Polymer clay is a great medium that anyone can learn. I am self-taught and have been working with polymer clay since 2003. I'm a firm believer in taking time to play, learn and understand the material. I have done substantial experimenting which has led me to my own signature look. That being said, this tutorial can be used by any beginner as well as a seasoned polymer clay artist. You may decide to use this tutorial without adding the bead frame. However, this tutorial will teach you how to add metal to your work for future projects!
Once you learn this technique, you’ll be able to apply this to any bead frame – shape or size.
The tutorial includes:
• A very detailed list of materials including best places to buy these materials.
• Detailed step-by-step explanation on how to make the pendant
• Additional notes and tips on what to avoid
• 35 close-up pictures to guide you through the process
This listing does not include the sterling silver bead frame. You will find the sterling frames here for sale: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5347683§ion_id=5903455
Pre-requisites: Some previous experience with polymer clay is helpful but not necessary.
