In this polymer clay tutorial I'm going to be showing you a polymer clay paintdrip watercolor and a fish scale watercolor. Two really cool ways to use up the scraps from any sheets you may have left over from previous Watercolor tutorials.

These two techniques are both really easy and create beautiful effects from your leftovers.


You will need the following supplies:

  • Leftover Veneer from a previous watercolor tutorial
  • Mini circle cutters
  • A tissue blade
  • An acrylic roller
  • A pasta machine

How to do the Polymer Clay Paintdrip Watercolor Technique

  • To start you’ll need a sheet leftover from a previous Oyster Watercolor. If you haven't made one before see my Oyster Watercolor Tutorial. The sheet will be full of holes where you punched out the circles.
  • Take your punched sheet and break it gently into strips. Try to keep them as long as possible. (See the video.)
  • Lay the strips over one another in an overlapping fashion.
  • Roll flat with your acrylic rod against the grain to create the watercolor effect.
  • Continue to roll in all directions to flatten the sheet completely.
  • Roll through the pasta machine on the thickest setting, then progressively through the next two settings.

How to do the Polymer Clay Fish Scale Watercolor Technique

  • To start you’ll need a sheet leftover from a previous Painted Watercolor. It can be the same one you used for the Oyster Watercolor if you have enough whole pieces left, or another one.
  • Punch out a bunch of small circles using a small circle cutter. I used the ones from my mini circle cutter set.
  • Layer them in overlapping lines so that they look like fish scales. (See the video.)
  • Press them together using your fingertips.
  • Roll flat with your acrylic rod against the grain to create the watercolor effect.
  • Continue to roll in all directions to flatten the sheet completely.
  • Roll through the pasta machine on the thickest setting, then progressively through the next two settings.
  • You can try this technique using bigger or smaller circles.
And that's two easy, fun ways to use up your watercolor leftovers.
