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).
Who Is Lisa Pavelka?
Lisa Pavelka is no stranger to KatersAcres or to the polymer clay world as a whole. Last year she joined us right here for a year long endeavor, The Pavelka Project. To all of you who participated, I hope you had fun. Lisa is a mixed media guru famous for her polymer & metal clay work and a Swarovski ambassador.
Every month here on the site we are choosing one polymer clay tutorial of the month and one polymer clay book of the month. This month’s book and tutorial are by the same person, the fabulous Lisa Pavelka.
What Are Faux Techniques?
Polymer clay is one of the most versatile mediums on the planet (in my opinion of course). One of the most wonderful things to do is to create a variety of faux items. Here’s a few faux items we’ve done in the past here on the site (all the links below go to FREE tutorials), be sure to check them out.
- Faux Ivory
- Faux Turquoise
- Faux Cinnabar
- Faux Pen & Ink Drawings
- Faux Metallic Tags
- Faux Stained Glass
- Faux Jade Color Recipe
This month, the tutorial that I have chosen is another great tutorial from Lisa Pavelka, Faux Dichroics. She shares her tips, tricks, and helps to making your very own Faux Dichroic Glass Pendants. I do hope that you try to make your own Faux Dichroic Pendants. Come and join us over at Parker’s Clay Tribe to share your work.
Thanks for joining me today,
