March Pavelka Project
Polymer Clay Faux Techniques
Cinnabar, Ivory, & Turquoise
Welcome back to the Pavelka Project! This month is going to be a little different from the first two months. Since we have done clocks in February, we are going to switch back to jewelry this month. In the previous 2 months we have tackled a specific project. This month we are working on technique and color mixing which is different from our past projects. Techniques can be used in your pieces in the future.
- Book Being Used: The Complete Book of Polymer Clay by Lisa Pavelka
- Project Page: 100 and following
- Project: Faux Techniques
- Premo! Polymer clay
- Acrylic paint in a variety of colors depending on which faux project you choose
- Acrylic paint brush
- Baby wipes or soft sponge
- *Metal Craft Wire (I prefer 24-28gauge but any flexible soft wire will do) to make eye pins.
- Sculpting tools
- *Salt scrub to clean your hands (Get my recipe HERE)
* Denotes optional supplies
What You Are Going to Make
This month we are focusing not so much on a specific project as the past 2 months (get the January & February projects), but rather working with and manipulating color.
To be entered to WIN a prize you must:
- Using Lisa’s book as a guide create at least ONE pendant from polymer clay using one of her 5 faux techniques.
- You must either email me a photo of the item you created OR add the photo to the folder in our FaceBook group.
- Here’s the BONUS for this month: For each and EVERY pendant you post, you are eligible to win! So … make 4 pendants, post 4 pendants, get 4 entries to win!
- REMINDER: Your project is to make beads & pendants this month.
You can make MANY things from these faux techniques. But we will be using these as a model to incorporate into later projects if you’d like.
