these are beautiful! Great craftsmanship! Do you use different colored clay do you paint it?

Thank you! It can go either way, color clay and/or acrylic paint. In this case, most of the color comes from the clay.

very impressive! What is the technique? Is it all about the materials used? how long did they take to make? I am simply amazed

Thank you :) It is polymer clay which comes in many colors and can be mixed to create new colors. As far as time, I probably spent anywhere from one hour to two hours on each of these....more or less. I am terrible about keeping track of time!

Your jewelry is so very detailed and beautiful! I work with pmc and diver clay/ so zi know how intriquite it is. It's absolutely amazing you have a gift. I have a question- how do you get wire to wrap tightly and neatly around stones? I'm new at wire wrapping. I make a lot of stones with sterling silver and silver plated beads and I'm practicing with pmc beads and silver pmc. Any advice? You have a gift!! Thank you for posting such beauty!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you like what I do with polymer clay. :) I can't offer any advice on wire wrapping....I am eager to learn it myself but have no knowledge yet. Sorry about that!
I hope you post some of your jewelry, I would love to see it!

umm...one last question, what type of paint do you use for your work?
Reply

MandarinMoon Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I use acrylic paint...most of the time I just use it to darken the recessed areas.

Absolutely lovely! I'll have to keep an eye out for the Rub-n-buff; I tend to use PearlEx pigment powders for creating metallic effects (I swear I'm somehow addicted to the stuff - I use it waaayyyyyy too much), but I'm always looking for new techniques.

Yeah, pearlex is great! I have a set and I haven't been using them lately...may have to blow the dust off of them. :D

Can I ask you soemthing? Im hoping I can (if I cant, just top reading.... right.... about.... NOW!)ask you that do you paint your clay? or do you get metallic colored clay somewhere? When I asked that can I paint the whole clayed area, she said its not advised. She didint know why, but according to her it wasent adwised. thats all i got. So do you hand paint them? and seriously, how much clay do you ahve!? thats stuffs expencive! (at least here in the northern europe....)
