What brand of clay did you use?
What colors did you use? If you mixed them yourself you can include a color recipe here if you like.
Black, Pearl, Gold
What products did you use? e.g. Lisa Pavelka Crackle Texture Stamp, or Pearlex Antique Copper Mica Powder. (The more detail the better.)
Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Sailboat, Butterscotch, Stream, and Citrus
Makins Texture Sheets, Set H, Abstract B
Mod Podge Dimensional Glaze
(Edited to add):For the long thin black part of the necklace I used window screen spline - the stuff that holds the screen in the frame. I like it because it does not irritate the neck.
Any special tools that other polymer clayers may be interested in?
Tell us how it went. Was it fun? Easy? Hard? Did you struggle with anything?
This was a super fun project. The Mica Shift was not working for some reason so I used the skewer to poke holes in the gold. Then I skimmed pieces off.
Do you have any tips for others trying this technique?
Not really. Your tutorial was very detailed.
Do you have any ideas for variations on this technique?
I wonder what it would look like with the Lisa Pavelka Peel instead of the Mica Shift technique but still using the alcohol ink technique.
Anything else you would like to share with us?
Just that your tutorials are fan-tab-u-lous!
