Playing with Mica Leaf Tutorial

Learn how to use mica powders with leaves you collect to create these fun polymer clay pendants. Free tutorial by The Blue Bottle Tree.It’s fall in the northern hemisphere (and spring in the southern). It’s that magical time when it’s not too hot, not too cold, and the trees are doing their magic. Leaves are falling down (or coming out) and I can’t help but notice their shapes and texture. Yesterday I took some time to make some new pendants with my Mica Leaf Tutorial.

If you’ve followed me a while, you’ll recognize this tutorial from a year ago. But I thought I’d share it again for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. I wanted to play with some new mica powders that recently arrived in my mailbox. I have always used Pearl-Ex powders by Jacquard, but recently I received some Perfect Pearls by Ranger and some MetalFX by BeadFX to review and while I’ll write about it later and give them a proper review, I couldn’t wait to give them a try. I’ve used all three brands of mica powder here. They’re all topped with resin, which really magnified the sparkle and shimmer effect but made them quite difficult to photograph.
