Faux Stained Glass
with Translucent Liquid Sculpey
We are trying some new things with our store this year. Some of those things we have never done before. Or in the case of our Interpretive Art Pendant Series, we’ve done them a lot but never listed them in our Etsy store. One of the NEW things that we are trying to 2012 is “faux stained glass” sun catchers. The picture above is a picture of the three sun catchers we did in honor of Valentine’s Day. We hope to do MANY more suncatchers.
The pattern was first hand-drawn and placed on parchment paper. The black clay was used to outline the design. Then translucent liquid Sculpey was blended together with vivid alcohol inks. The colors were mixed and then place into the heart. The colors were then “feather” together using knitting and sewing needles. The heart was then baked. The resulting effect is a semi-translucent “sun catcher” that allows light through in beautiful patterns. Try making these also with mica powders.
