Polymer Clay Tutorial of the Month:
Faux Dichroic Glass
with Lisa Pavelka
Learning and adapting new tricks with polymer clay is always fun! This month we are going to explore faux dichroic glass techniques using our favorite medium, polymer clay. This past year, Lisa Pavelka and I collaborated on a year long polymer clay project. To say “thank you” to all who participated, Lisa is joining us once again for a tutorial and giveaway (come back Friday).

Polymer Clay Word Ornament Tutorial
Making a Polymer Clay Word Ornament
The time has arrived … the final month of, the Pavelka Project. This month we a doing another more ‘open-ended’ project for you. This month we are using the book, Quick & Easy Gifts with Polymer Clay, and using the ornament idea. The “word” that you choose does NOT have to be a holiday word, maybe it’s your family name, child’s name, pet’s name, or word of the year. In any case, the ornament should be small enough to hang on a tree or on a door.
My take on Lisa’s tutorial is shown below. I used many similar techniques, but you can make your word ornament however you’d like. I’ve combined textured clay, stamping, & mica powders into a sophisticated take on the word “Noel” as in “the First Noel.” Lisa offers literally dozens of ideas throughout all her books on techniques, color palettes, and so much more. [Order your books here] I also have over 150 tutorials here on the site you could use to get ideas to decorate your jar.
Don’t Forget: You MUST incorporate a word into your ornament to be entered for a chance to win.

2015 Pavelka Project
We wrapped up another good month for The Pavelka Project. I know that many of you struggles with the foiling techniques, but I’m so glad to see that so many tried it. Even if you tried and failed. Foils can often be picky, but once you get used to using them, they can be a LOT of fun too.
