Faux Beach Glass Tutorial by KatersAcres

 

This Faux Beach Glass Tutorial will make the perfect summer accessories for home, decor, or even jewelry! Parker’s Clayful Tutorials Club is taking a dive into the sea with our Ocean Commotion theme this month and started things off with our über cute Puffed Fish duo. With all our ocean tutorials, it seemed only fitting to offer a free Faux Beach Glass tutorial here on the site for all my readers too!


Materials:

Faux Beach Glass Tutorial

  • Faux Beach Glass Tutorial by KatersAcresSeparate one full block of Premo! Frost polymer clay into 8 equally proportioned pieces.
  • Fully condition each piece of  Premo! polymer clay individually.
  • Choose 6-8 light colored alcohol inks (I chose inks by Ranger) to tint your clay.
    • If you choose 6 colors, you will use only 6 sections of your block. 7 colors, 7 sections, etc, etc, etc.
  • Add only 2-3 drops of each light colored alcohol ink per mini conditioned clay sheet.
    • NOTE: These drops will bake DARKER thank they currently appear. For this project, less is more.
  • Tip: If you are using a “bright” or “bold” alcohol ink by ranger, use ONLY 1 drop of alcohol ink!
  • Use a dry finger to swirl the alcohol onto the surface of the mini sheet.
  • Allow to dry fully.
  • Once the alcohol ink is dry, condition the clay again fully combining the ink into the clay.
  • When the ink is combined into the clay you will have new vibrant sheets of clay!
  • Form these sheets into small shards/pieces of beach glass using your fingers.
    • I got about 3 pieces of faux glass from each 1/8 portion of block I used.
  • Pierce with toothpicks or bead pins before baking.
  • Bake your faux glass for 45 minutes at 275 degrees covered in foil.
  • After baking use your faux beach glass pieces as desired.

To achieve a more realistic faux beach glass result, please see this fabulous tutorial from The Blue Bottle Tree.

This polymer clay sunset pendant tutorial will introduce you to some basic steps on how to make your own easy pendants to wear this summer. With just a few basic tools and basic skills, you too can create a delightful summer pendant to wear around town.


Materials:

Polymer Clay Sunset Pendant Tutorial

  • Sunset Pendant Tutorial STEPS by Katie Oskin of KatersAcresFully condition your Premo! polymer clay.
  • Choose colors to make a simple Skinner Blend. This particular blend was made using my Sunset Skinner Blend recipe.
  • Cut out a small portion of the blend.
  • Place on a sheet of black clay rolled on the 2nd largest setting of your pasta machine.
  • Cut out any shape (using cutters or a blade) that is pleasing to your eye.
  • Use your finger (check out the Christi Twisty technique) or a stamp to lightly texture the background.
  • Add some light blue (or white) lines in various places for clouds.
  • Add a few green “islands” if you’d like as well.
  • Use a sculpting tool to “paint” the clouds and give them texture. Do the same for the islands.
  • Now you need a focal point … why not some lovely palm trees? Not only that, but you could also use birds or a hammock, an owl or some deer, or how about a bear? Not to mention that you could add some water to the bottom for a wide variety of other options too.
  • When you are finished add some highlights with some mica powders or chalk powders.
  • Bake your pendant for 45 minutes at 275 degrees.
  • After baking, add a bail to your pendant. Finish as desired.

See this article for an example on backing your piece and why it’s important to finish your pendant properly.
