It was a hot day at the Chihuly exhibit as strangers packed into the glass elevator to rise four stories. Suddenly a voice spoke to me, “I love your necklace. It really caught my eye.” That's the Holo Effect. Jewelry made with the Holo Effect will be noticed. It is eye-catching. It's magical, mysterious, and seems to glow from within, especially in low light. Five projects are included in this tutorial, each introducing a different way to use the Holo Effect in your polymer clay and mixed media art. It's a perfect decorative addition to your art journals, fairy gardens and houses, mosaic tiles, trinket boxes, holiday ornaments, and of course, jewelry.
This easy tutorial is suitable for all levels, but if you’re new to polymer I recommend adding the Polymer Clay Essentials eBook to your order.
Recently updated and expanded, the Holo Effect Tutorial is nearly 60 pages long and contains 131 beautiful photographs. There are five projects, each showing a different way to use and construct the Holo Effect, including a simple pendant, a domed pendant, a simple framed ornament, post earrings, and a cutter-shaped ornament. You will easily see from these examples how to adapt the idea and use the Holo Effect in your projects.
All of the items required to produce the Holo Effect can be purchased at your local craft store in the US. (Non-US purchasers of the tutorial will also be given a link to purchase some inexpensive materials from my website if they’re not able to find them locally.) ***Note*** Resin is not required to use the technique, though I do recommend it as the best choice. You can still get excellent results with Fimo Deco Gel or Sculpey Clear.
