|Ocean Beaded Necklace - Combing technique using polymer clay|
|Ocean Teardrop Pendant - Combing using polymer clay|
This time round I will be trying both again but using only three colours mainly black and white with dashes of red.
|Feathering technique using liquid clay 1st attempt|
Here is my first piece ...
and although it looks great it just did'nt dry and I had to scrap it again.
I think I may have used too much oil paint which can take days to dry
|Feathering with liquid clay 2nd attempt|
at first seemed better but after leaving it to dry it all blurred into each other and the feathering pattern was lost.
I think too much liquid clay this time, its obviously a real balancing act and one I will have to try again after all practice makes perfect.
If you have tried this effect and have any tips to help me get it right I would love to here from you.
|Combing with clay 3 colours used|
Here is the results from my combing technique using 3 colours of clay.
Its looking good, the pattern is larger than when I first tried this technique but I have put that down to using just the 3 colours this time.
Despite looking good its not been so easy to apply as this time round it lost its shape and pattern when applied to beads or onto a cabochon.
