Polymer Clay Tutorial: Applying Resin to 3 Types of Pendants

New Polymer Clay Tutorial

 This tutorial illustrates how to apply a 2-part resin coating to the top surface of 3 Different Types of Pendants:

• Flat, smooth pendants, Steps 1-12
• Raised textured pendants, Steps 13-15
• Curved Pendants, Steps 16-19
• Adding a second coat of resin, Steps 20-21

I just released my third Tutorial, I thought I’d never finish this one! It has 35 pages & 61 Photos. The photos are close-ups, so you can easily follow the step by step format. The reason I decided to write this particular tutorial is that I’ve had so many customers & folks on my fan page ask me “How do you get that shine on your pendants”? Now, you can find out the steps I take to get that great domed effect & fabulous shine on the most difficult to cover projects like the Raised Surface Pendants, I make in my Cabochon Pendant Tutorial! This is the way I found that works best for me, and I get perfect results every time. Here is the link to the Resin tutorial.

How to: Faux Hidden Magic Tutorial

Polymer Clay Faux Hidden Magic

Free Cuff Bracelet Tutorial

Here is my simplified version of the Hidden Magic technique. It’s quick & easy & the results are comparable to real thing, if I do say so myself-lol! I’m an impatient person, if I get an idea I like to see the finished product ASAP!
I used Premo Clay for this demo, the colors are vibrant & it retains a nice flexibility after baking.The cane I used for this bracelet was an older one, so after I ran the slice through the pasta machine on #2, I added a very thin sheet of translucent on top, to hold it all together. Then, the thin black & white sheets over that. Run the whole concoction through on #3, and then black side down on your stamp on #1. Wha-La !

Polymer Clay Millifiore Pendant

The making of a pendant

My millifiore pendant made on a Lime Green base that is layered with dichroic foils, you can see an area of green tinted foil towards the center of the pendant. Next step, adding the translucent swirly cane slices, then the largest flowers & finishing up with the tiny white blossoms. This pendant required lots of wet-sanding…but not too much! I’ve gotten so into the sanding sometimes, I’ve sanded some flowers right off the pendant!! Gosh, I hate when I do that:(
