How to create using polymer clay and markers to make pretty colorful art jewelry


www.polymerclaytv.com Join us today as Kira shows you how to create the perfect clay blend, what kind of markers work fabulous on polymer clay, how to blend your own colors, and more! Learn to make this complete focal pendant. Tools are available at www.CreateAlong.com. Products used are below, you can buy them straight from here if you like without leaving this website.

There are so many fun brands of markers available. These are alcohol ink markers called Chromatix, they are juicy and have a brush tip which makes it easy to paint your clay. Using a mix of Premo Accents White Granite and Souffle by Sculpey white clay creates the perfect surface- bright white with a little sparkle and some toothy grain from the Souffle to hold onto the marker ink.

Watch for more tips!

Adult Coloring on Polymer Clay Coloring Techniques

Adult coloring is now available for polymer clay! Have fun creating with our NEW Color Me Magic Transfer Papers, there are so many images to choose from and a variety of ways to color the clay. It is so easy to transfer and get started coloring on polymer clay.

Just remember: do not use a water based pigment marker on the paper, as it will dissolve it. Everything used in this video is alcohol based ink. Did you know that your Sharpies and other permanent markers are basically alcohol inks?

I have also added the video I did last week which shows how to transfer onto polymer clay. Enjoy! You can find all of these papers at  supplies in our shop at this link. 

Come join Polymer Clay Tribe and share what you make with us! http://www.polymerclaytribe.com

More fun with polymer clay silkscreens - create a canvas and a cigar box purse!

Today we have 2 projects from the Design Team at Polymer Clay TV, Pat created a fun piece of canvas wall art and Suzanne made a cigar box purse with decopage and silkscreening.

These projects show you how you can expand polymer clay beyond making small items like jewelry and into using it as a tool to create whatever is in your head. Want to make a painting that has dimension? Use your clay to create parts that you can glue onto a canvas like Pat did here, or paint your whole picture with polymer clay like Suzanne did in this class- link here.

Have an idea for a fun accessory? Why not completely personalize it with clay parts and pieces like Suzanne did with the cigar box?

How to use Iced Enamels with polymer clay... a quick tutorial


I picked up three colors of Iced Enamels out of curiosity and because I liked them... a hot pink, bright green, and German silver. As I looked at them I thought to myself, I wonder if they act like embossing powder, because that is kinda what they look like. So in this project, I use both the Iced Enamels and some other Ranger brand powders I had in my stash.

Just remember- as told to me by Wendy Orlowski (take her full class on iced enamels at Polymer Clay Adventure) you definitely need the Iced Enamels medium to get it to stick to the clay properly.

As you will notice, I used a dark red color and with the brown base clay it did not show up very well, so in the future I would use colors that contrast more. I had no issues with any of the other colors I used.

The tools come from the shop at www.CreateAlong.com.

Polymer Clay Journal Cover Cherry Blossoms


I love the look of delicate cherry blossoms. I am not a girly girl but something about these flowers always brings a smile to my face. They are often associated with Oriental art too. I was inspired to create some journal covers after finding some inexpensive Moleskin journals that were a little plain for my taste. I knew they would look better embellished with polymer clay of course! So come create along with me as I make a cherry blossom polymer clay journal cover featuring a silkscreen stencil, cane work, molding and more! Don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss a thing. You can find the supplies in our shop at http://www.createalong.com

Silkscreen stencil: SHOP
Cherry Blossom Mold: SHOP



As you see I created 2 different versions and colors so you can customize it to your liking. I decided to just add a wisp of acrylic paint to the petals of the flowers with a small tipped paint brush for a finishing touch. I baked them and when they came out of the oven I laid them flat and made sure they stayed that way while they cooled.You can put a heavy book or something on top of them while they cool if you want. It was a fun project and now I have 2 journal covers for my journals. Gotta get writing!
