New Tutorial Faux Cloisonne: Color

I am very excited about this new tutorial and happy to introduce it. 

With this tutorial, I invite you to return to my signature Faux Cloisonne technique and explore various possibilities for creating beautiful reach colors. 

This tutorial explains in a great detail how to add a metal leaf insert to your faux cloisonne project, how to color it with alcohol inks in a number of different ways, and how to expand your mica powders palette.  You will find in this tutorial numerous tips which will save you a lot of time and money not only with this particular technique, but with your polymer clay work in general.


To demonstrate this technique, I chose a project shown above - a colorful brooch in an interesting shape.  In this tutorial you will find step-by-step instructions for making this particular brooch (including a detailed demonstration of finishing its back and suggestions for choosing an optimal closure for your polymer clay brooches). 

In addition to that,  I included a page with a few other brooch designs, ready to be used in your projects.

Bursting with Color

If you asked me any time up until recently what was my favorite color, I would say black.  I liked it in my clothes and I used it a lot in my polymer clay art.  Actually, most of my designs were about the line, and color was something secondary, and often an afterthought.

Now, I do not know what happened, but suddenly not only do I embrace color, but I am literally craving color - both in my art and in my wardrobe...

Here are a few examples of my latest creations (and yes - a tutorial is following soon).  These all brooches, and they all are done in my signature Faux Cloisonne technique.
