Faux Polymer Clay Tutorials

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 show some 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.

But for now, let's start with the black-veined faux turquoise...
