Using polymer clay, mica powder, and the leaves you find around your home, you can use the beauty of nature to create bold, graphic images like the one above. It uses a leaf from a Spider Flower plant with brightly contrasting red and gold mica powder. Or you can make more subtle, natural and earthy pendants such as this round one which uses leaves from a Golden Rain Tree and False Strawberry from my yard.
And depending on your choice of colors, you can create soft fantasy scenes with an ethereal feeling. Or bright colors that nature never intended! The sky has never been quite this blue, but the brilliant yellow leaves of my Viburnum bush have wonderful texture that the mica highlights beautifully.
Are you curious? Feel free to download the tutorial. And if you have wanted to buy one of my tutorials but are not quite sure what they were like, this is a pretty good example of my style and how much detail I include. Actually, my paid tutorials tend to be much more comprehensive with multiple projects and/or techniques. I write very thorough tutorials, illustrating every step, and going into as much detail as necessary for clayers of all levels to be successful. You can find all my tutorials, including the free Mica Leaf Pendant Tutorial in my Tutorials Shop.
