1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / How to get superglue residue off of my resin! on: July 28, 2012 11:28:32 AM
I covered a small disc of polymer clay with epoxy resin (easy cast) and glued it into a purse hook for a gift.  When I pushed the disc into place, the glue pooled out and got on the resin.  I've been trying  wiping it with acetone for days and even tried sanding it off.  It has reduced a bit, but it's still not what it once was.  Half of it is very dull due to the glue residue.  Any advice for getting it back to being pretty?  What about putting another layer of resin on top, would that help?

This took quite some time, but I hope you enjoy looking!

I'm not sure if this should go under this board, or the poly clay one.  This is a polymer clay daisy necklace that I made this weekend.  I kind of got inspired by a necklace I saw one of the Project Runway contestants wearing when I was watching some reruns.   Thanks for looking!

Made this necklace this weekend and am totally in love with it!  I don't feel at liberty to explain how I made it, since I belong to a Polymer Tutorial Website where I learned the technique at.  Thanks for looking!

A Japanese character pendant I made for a friend.   Polymer Clay and Pendant Bezel.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Polymer Beaded necklaces (IMG Heavy) on: February 20, 2011 04:17:12 PM
Two new necklace projects: One with purple polymer beads, spacers, and purple crystals.  The other with glass and polymer beads linked onto chain.  My first chain project, too.  These were loads of fun!  I apologize for the pictures, but my cell phone camera is the best one I have. 

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Polymer Clay Whisper Chain on: February 18, 2011 06:22:16 PM
My first time working with wire loops and jump rings.  I made the beads out of polymer clay, with stamped etchings.  I then painted the stamped areas and sanded, buffed and glazed.  It's called a whisper chain because the images are slightly different with each bead, kind of like the game "telephone".  I had a lot of fun doing this!

 Just finished this necklace today.  Made the beads a few days ago.  I'm loving it, and hope you like it, too! 

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My first mica shift pendant. on: February 17, 2011 10:31:40 AM
I've seen so many mica shift pieces online, and wanted to try my hand at it.  I read quite a bit about it, and why it works the way it does, with the mica being moved around in different directions.  I ran it through the pasta machine a bunch, making sure that I had no streaks or lines and that the mica was all facing the same way.  Here is what I came up with: 

I backed it up with a piece of black clay with silver leaf.  I also glazed it with clear dimensional gloss that I'm really loving (Inkssentials Glossy Accents).  It works a lot like resin, though it's not as hard and isn't as raised, but I prefer it to the mess and preciseness that resin requires.  I hope you like it!
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Tribal Necklace- beads made with polymer clay on: February 16, 2011 02:48:11 PM
For this necklace, I rolled tube beads around toothpicks, and then rolled them on pieces of string for the random carving effect.  I pulled out the string, and shaped them around the base of a drinking glass.  After curing, I painted them with black acrylic pant, then sanded it off with 400 grit paper.  Finally, I varnished them with acrylic floor wax (Pledge Future), and strung them with silver spacer beads. 
Hope you like it!
