How to Make Faux Spiderweb Jasper from Polymer Clay

Preparing the Clay
  • COLOR RECIPE:
    • 1 translucent, 1 white, a tiny pinch of black OR
    • 30 translucent, 30 white, 1 black
  • Roll your dirty white Premo mix into a log.
  • Chop roughly with a tissue blade.
  • Dust liberally with black mica powder.
  • Continue to chop into medium size chips.
  • Remove a small portion and then continue chopping into finer pieces.
  • Remove a small portion and then continue chopping until you get the pieces as fine as you can.
  • Bring all of the pieces together and mix them up.
  • Roll the pieces gently between your palms to dull the sharp edges of the pieces.
  • Squeeze on a dollop of black paint and mix it in using a skewer.
  • Leave to dry, or use a heat gun or hairdryer to speed up the process. Mix about while using the heat gun to make sure that all of the wet paint is exposed to the heat.
  • Move to the side.
  • Spread a thin layer of black paint over your tile. Leave to dry or use your heat gun.
  • Scrape the paint off of your tile using your tissue blade.
  • Pick up the pile of dust and drop onto your clay pieces.
  • Mix together with your fingers.
  • You now have the choice of forming the pieces into a cane and taking slices, or making cabochons, which is the option I have chosen for today.
Creating Cabochons
  • Press some of your pieces into a mold.
  • Roll over with your acrylic rod.
  • Shave the excess away using your tissue blade.
  • Gently work the clay out of the mold.
  • Round off the edges by tapping against them with your tissue blade.
  • Bake at the recommended temperature for an hour.
  • Spray with alcohol and rub with a wet wipe to remove some of the paint before sanding.
  • Sand starting from your lowest grit (400) up to your highest.
  • Buff using a soft cloth or a rotary tool if you have one.
  • Add a light layer of Renaissance wax and buff again.
  • Leave to dry for 10 minutes.
And that's how to make faux Spiderweb Jasper out of polymer clay. I hope you enjoyed that tutorial.
