Create professionally finished polymer clay beads and pendants by combining different techniques, and following the step by step instructions and finishing tips included in these video tutorials.
I'll be showing you how to combine different techniques to put fun and interesting polymer clay designs together. I'll also be sharing tips and tricks along the way, ranging from smoothing off your edges, to using a Dremel tool to buff your beads.
The techniques you learn here will help you finish off your beads professionally, ready to be added to complete polymer clay jewelry pieces for you to wear or sell.
In this faux polymer clay tutorial I'll be showing you how to
create one of my favorite gemstones - Faux Agate.
This technique can be used to
create anything from Botswana Agate to Blue Lace Agate. Just tweak the colors and patterns
and you could end up with a completely different faux stone. In this particular project we will be making Faux Agate Polymer Clay Dagger Beads.
This tutorial shows you how to make the flat version of the faux agate daggers above.
I am using the lilac color scheme to show you how to make these polymer clay faux agate pendants, but you could also make them in the blues and greens used for the daggers.
This tutorial is a fun twist on the traditional lentil bead. I’ll
show you how to make polymer clay lentil beads using scrap cane ends, and then we will turn them into into flat and domed pendants.
Changing the shape makes
sanding so much easier and adds a treasure chest of new design options.
In this polymer clay jewelry tutorial we will be making a simple, but really pretty, polymer
clay snowflake cane. I'll show you how to make it, reduce it to various
sizes and how to use it to make the stunning silent night beads that
this project is named after.
This polymer clay cane is really
easy to make, but so effective. Please do give it a try. It's great fun
and produces a beautiful and rewarding result.
In this polymer clay tutorial, I'll be showing you how to make Faux
Coral and Faux Lava from polymer clay. These are two of the simplest
faux techniques, but the results are realistic and beautiful.
In this project we will be making a simple bracelet. Be sure to check out part two below, for the matching Boiling Bubbles Pendant.
In this tutorial we will be making a Lily Pond polymer clay bead
necklace using the torn paper or watercolor technique and Gelatos. I'll
show you how to create different effects depending on which background
clay you use.
We will also be rolling some beautiful lentil beads from our watercolor veneers and molding them into various cabochon shapes.
also included a fairly detailed description of the drilling process in
this video, so if that is something you struggle with, make sure you
watch right to the end.
In this faux Jasper polymer clay tutorial I'll show you a new technique to make Mokume Gane that looks a bit like Jasper. We will be using a super mixed media product by Faber
Castell called Gelatos.
The Mokume Gane will be used to create Faux Jasper cabochons and torpedo beads which we will string to make the Saber Tooth necklace.
