This Starry Night Polymer Clay Jewelry tutorial is a spin on Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night painting. This is one of my favorite of his works and I thought that I would love to capture it in polymer clay.

Here is a beautiful winter themed polymer clay project using textures and alcohol inks. In the tutorial I show you how to create your own texture stamps, so that you’ll be able to make your own unique stamps for your project.

This project is easy and versatile. You can change it from being a winter themed project to any season you want just by changing the colors.

I use resin and liquid clay in this tutorial to add a level of depth to the piece that looks stunning. I highly recommend using them, but you can create beautiful pieces without them too.
