Polymer Clay Winter Steampunk Tutorial Instructions:

    First, condition about 1/8 block of white Premo! polymer clay.

  • You can condition your clay by rolling it through a pasta machine, though you can also do it by hand.
  • Roll the clay into a ball.
  • Use an acrylic block to flatten the ball.
  • NOTE: If the round is too big, remove some clay and try again. Everyone like’s different sized pendants, and I like mine BIG!
  • Use a stamp and texture your clay.
  • Insert a gear into the top of the pendant as your bail.
  • Re-stamp your round if needed. (You will cover most of this, but you want some texture behind your canes).
  • Use a dotting tool to ident a small portion of your pendant where your Swarovski rivoli/chaton will sit.
  • Place a small area of silver leaf onto your round if you rivoli or chaton does not have foil backing.
  • Remove the excess so only a small round remains.
  • Add a small drop of Fimo Deco Gel on top of the leafing. This will help hold the chaton in place. You can use TLS as long as your crystal is NOT clear.
  • Begin adding cane slices of petals and leaves in a pattern that is pleasing to your eye.
  • Also add small gears as you work.
  • Experiment with designs until you find something you like.
  • Fill up the piece, but be sure to leave some negative space as well.
  • Bake at 275 degrees (if using Premo!) in your dedicated polymer clay oven for 45-60 minutes.
  • Allow to completely cool in oven.
  • Remove and place on a simple chain.

Hi Katie, Just a quick hello and thanks to you for all you do. My life is pretty messed up right now so I don’t keep in touch with others like I should, but I want you to know that when I see Katersacres in my inbox it always puts a smile on my face. You’re a good girl and a good person and quite the artist I must say, as well. Thanks for the smiles my friend. Pam

Thank you Katie. I hope you know how much your generosity helps those of us who cannot afford to buy tutorials. You have once again taken away my resolve to quit claying. Love KatersAcres, and the emails.

I’m so glad you stopped by and even MORE GLAD you are not going to quit claying. It’s FAR too much fun to quit now!
