Free Mica Leaf Tutorial


In the autumn the leaves turn colors and fall from the trees, bringing new awareness to their beautiful textures. And in the spring, the new leaves and flowers inspire us after a long dreary winter. What can we do with these leaves and flower petals? Use them with your polymer clay, of course! This tutorial shows how to make a pendant from polymer clay, mica powder (such as Pearl-Ex or even eye shadow) and leaves. You can color the pendant any way you like, using the shimmery mica to bring richness to the textures.

This free Mica Leaf Tutorial is an example of and a great introduction to the way I write tutorials, which are a bit more comprehensive than many others out there.  Feel free to download a copy of this tutorial for your own enjoyment and work through the project, learning how easy it is to make great mica leaf pendants.
