I found the answer - How do you bring the shine on your stamped polymer clay?
I found the answer -Yesterday was my second day with Polymer Clay jewelry making . As I am playing with play do more and more with my grand children, I am getting more and more interested in trying out polymer clay jewelry making.
Here is what happened yesterday
At the very right hand corner you see what my husband calls pillars of success - the broken ones that got ruined while adding the wire part to it.
I used Fimo and I think I used 250 degree for about 20 minutes. Next time I'll raise the oven temp a little bit more and keep it for longer.
I found a great site where Gina was demonstrating using the embossing thing. Here is the link of the video .
What I liked about it is that the raised , stamped part had a nice metallic finish. How can you do it with out using metal clay or powder?
I did not quite have quite the ingredients she mentioned, not her stamp, or the particular embossing thing, but I had some embossing powder that needs heat to show the gold shine. So I used that.
At the very left hand corner I integrated it with my wire knit jewelry part and I will finish it as a pair of earring.
Today, I went to Michael's and bought some Primo- I think Fimo and Primo are kind of same, and the kind Gina mentioned in the video for the embossing material too. It was on sale 40% off - other wise the thing is pretty pricey $18.
Anyway I'll show what I am coming up with in the upcoming posts soon.
I am also seriously working on wind proofing my craft display ideas. I do have a show in early June, so every day I am working a little bit on that aspect.
