Faux techniques are one of the most fascinating aspects of polymer clay. In these polymer clay tutorials I'll show you how to perfectly emulate all sorts of things such as stones, shells, wood and more.
With the right techniques, the results can be very effective and in some cases, it's almost impossible to tell the real deal from the polymer clay.
These polymer clay techniques are often messy, and require a great deal of experimenting and trial and error to perfect, but the results are so rewarding that this has become my favorite part of the polymer clay journey. I hope you enjoy watching these faux tutorials as much as I have enjoyed putting them together.
This tutorial showcases the faux black
veined turquoise technique. This polymer clay
technique uses paint to create the veins and is loads of fun to do. If you want something a
bit more exotic, such as the gorgeous African Turquoise, one of my personal favorites, be sure to watch to the end of the tutorial where I'll
examples of the other variations I’ve come up with.
Tutorials for many of these variations will be added to my Patreon page in the near future, so keep an eye out for them. They're really cool - you don't want to miss them.
In this polymer clay bead 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.
In this faux Jasper tutorial I'll show you how to make Mokume Gane using Faber
Castell's Gelatos. I've been experimenting with them for a while and found that they can be used to create some cool faux stone effects.
We'll turn the Mokume Gane
into faux jasper polymer clay cabochons and torpedo beads and we'll
make a Saber Tooth necklace with them.
In this tutorial I’ll be showing how to make faux Dragon Vein Agate
cabochons. We will be using a faux agate sheet and a crackle cane to
achieve the result, and all you will need is some white and translucent
polymer clay, and a couple of alcohol inks.
Dragon Vein Agate
comes in many different forms and I'll be showing how to imitate a few
different ones in this tutorial. There are endless possibilities to mess
around with once you have the base sheet and cane, so this is a
tutorial you can really have fun with.
In this tutorial I’ll be showing how to make faux red Tiger Eye, and how
to make cabochons with it. I'll show you a few different versions with
various color combinations and striation patterns, since no two stones
are the same.
In part two of this tutorial, we will use the Red
Tiger Eye sheet to make a beautiful lariat necklace.
In this tutorial I'll be showing how to make a Faux Amethyst Geode Slice
which we will then use to make a full jewelry set, as well as a
keyring. This polymer clay project is much easier than it looks, and
best of all it requires no sanding, so it's sure to be a favorite!
can switch up the colors used in this technique to create all sorts of
different agate slices, so be sure to try out other combinations.
In this faux Tiger Eye tutorial we will be learning how to imitate the beautiful blue Tiger Eye stone - one of my favorites.
will be making some gorgeous African inspired, reversible earrings and
some lovely cabochons which will be buffed to a perfect shine. I'll be
giving lots of sanding and buffing tips in this video to help you get
the best shine from your clay, so be sure to watch all the way through.
This tutorial requires very little in the way of experience or supplies and is super easy and fun. I hope you enjoy it.
