Polymer Paisley

POLYMER PAISLEY
paisleya distinctive intricate pattern of curved, feather-shaped figures based on a pine cone design from India. ORIGIN – early 19th century, named after town of Paisley, Scotland, the original place of manufacture.
I’ve always loved the distinctive Paisley design. Many will remember the more psychedelic version from the late 60’s & 70’s, seeing it splattered over everything from caftans to wallpaper. My version is done in Premo metallic polymer clay. Mixing various shades of purples & violets to achieve a pleasing palette. To complete the look I added a crystal clear coating of Enviro-tex lite resin.
I also tried a complementary color mix of salmon, turquiose, & gold, for this shield shaped pendant. For the bail I used different sprockets I found at the local hardware store.
