1  Attaching photos. Which material is best? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Lady Anca on: August 25, 2010 10:26:19 AM
I hope this is a challenge  Grin
I have something in mind, i want to make brooches, something like this model:


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

As you can see there is a photo that is attached to a material.
The only problem is that i cannot decide. Should the base material be polymer clay or ceramics? Would there be any difference? And which method is the best to glue a piece of paper from a material without having air bubbles under it?

2  Going mad...and translucent also! in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Lady Anca on: August 04, 2009 01:37:45 PM
Well, i've tried making a bracelet, everything was fine...Untill i discovered that the translucent part didn't seem to be quite transparent as i thought it would be. I always use fimo soft and this one (translucent clay) is the only one i can find on the market.
There is a technique there somewhere that i haven't discovered yet.
At first i wanted to obtain an effect like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/marsdesign-marcia/3038769582/in/photostream/

The result wasn't quite what i expected:



I thought that the trick is to make real thin slices. I only have a pasta machine, and after i put them in the pasta machine, they look a bit distorted. If i set it at the thickest setting, the slices become huge and i cannot use them.

Where do i go wrong?
