This tutorial shows you how to use a silkscreen to create decorated sheet of polymer clay that is reminiscent of opulent tapestries, using both the rich colors and the metallic, sparking accents. You will then learn how to make a pair of earrings featuring your Opulent Tapestry sheet. I don't just show you the idea, I take you through each of the 42 steps. It's all clearly spelled out, from creating the colors, using the silkscreen, to forming the wire. Be assured that you won't be left wondering due to a missed step! This tutorial is perfect for beginners and those wanting to learn more about constructing jewelry (and not just beads) with polymer clay. It’s a beautiful and fun project that can make earrings, pendants, or even opulent and rich ornaments that sparkle in your holiday tree.
This project tutorial is 28 pages long and contains 55 photographs. This is a easy level tutorial that requires little to no previous polymer clay experience. I don’t, however, cover the basics of working with polymer clay, so if you’re new to this material you might want to add the Polymer Clay Essentials eBook to your order. Eager to learn more about silkscreens? Don’t miss my All About Silkscreens on Polymer Clay eBook.
In addition to the usual polymer clay and crafting supplies, you’ll need to have a silkscreen stencil of your chosen design and some alcohol inks. The resources section contains links to many silkscreen vendors and artists around the world. I also give a useful list of polymer clay suppliers around the world.
