by Karen Jonsson
(Huber Heights Ohio)
What brand of clay did you use?
For the yellow mica I used premo pearl and kato yellow concentrate. Premo for the rose Pearl Premo and Kato blue concentrate
What colors did you use? If you mixed them yourself you can include a color recipe here if you like.
I used a 1x1/2x1/4" piece of kato yellow
concentrate with 3/4 2 ounce package of Premo pearl. a 1x1/2x1/4" piece of kato blue concentrate with 3/4 2 ounce package of Premo pearl. Just used premo medium blue(don't remember) and Premo white in the rose cane. For the back I just used scrap clay mixed well and it turned into a muted light brown.
What products did you use? e.g. Lisa Pavelka Crackle Texture Stamp, or Pearlex Antique Copper
Mica Powder. (The more detail the better.)
Lisa Pavelka Paisley stamp and Jessama extended collar cutter.
Any special tools that other polymer clayers may be interested in?
I used a stirring straw to make the hanging holes.
Tell us how it went. Was it fun? Easy? Hard? Did you struggle with anything?
The mica went quite well and it was a eureka moment for me because after a very long time trying with other Tutorials, I was able to do it well under Samatha's tutelage.
Do you have any tips for others trying this technique?
Make sure you get a good deep impression. Even if you do gouge it a little too much do not scrap it it may be ok, so keep going.
Do you have any ideas for variations on this technique?
Use different stamps , colors and canes.
Anything else you would like to share with us?
Still early days for me getting seams straight but I just think and say they are organic!
