Following on from my post on Faux Jade with polymer clay, I decided to have a go at Faux Rose Quartz.
I found this free tutorial online from Polymer Clay Central Faux Rose Quartz, a great tutorial but I altered it slightly here's what I done.
To start I took some translucent clay and added a very small amount of red, I mixed the colour well until evenly mixed. I them decided much like the faux jade tutorial to take some cuts from my mix and added a few more specks of the red clay, I rolled this through but this time not a thoroughly allowing the mix to have some darker speck of pink showing through.

I then mixed my iridescent glitter though my full mixed rose quartz again until it was evenly mixed through.

Then again much like my faux jade tutorial I decided to chopped the two mixes up using my blade and them randomly combined the two together to allow of a variation in colour.

This was then rolled until combined, but not overly as I didn't want to colours to blend together and there you go a faux rose quartz polymer clay mix.

Now I have to add at this point personally I don't like the finished result of using the iridescent flakes and would omit these next time.
Here's what I create with my Faux Rose Quartz
