Special techniques for working with polymerclay help to provide you with at least two advantages. The first is the knowledge of new and incredible opportunities that plastic offers, the second is the possibility of creating your own unique things. For example, you can make ice beads on a semi-transparent base. It will need to take the usual white clay, as well as transparent clay with a white tint. Also, you should choose another bright color, which will become the main part for the expression and improvement of the bead. In our case, we chose the red color.
Beautiful beads with transparent clay with their own hands - colored beads
This modern lesson will try to tell you aboutWhat is polymer clay and what components will you need? On the example of a simple and easy lesson, you will learn how to shape your own beads, using even this version of exotic clay, as transparent. It is just as simple in execution and does not differ from its white counterpart, only by the presence of transparency and as a result - the ability to decorate or improve any product. Beads with transparent clay So, wetry to form a new kind of beads. They can be in a variety of colors, but will be supplemented with a transparent type of dye inside the polymer clay. Thus, the product will be slightly visible and modify the streams of light. The product will be extremely interesting and perhaps very unusual in its construction. Also, special tools forwork. You need to take a stationery knife, pick up a board of glass for clay, take a glass with a smooth surface (like a rolling pin), needle and awl, a piece of paper, plastic varnish, beads, beads, fishing beads, beads, dividers and everything that you can potential is useful for improving the idea. Getting Started Using a white clay of translucent type, roll a small sausage shape. White clay must be formed with the help of the "formation" form. For this, we need our glass. Then, the transparent shape of the sausage should be placed on the plane of white clay. After that, roll the sausage until it is 3 times longer, which means it is thinner. After, it is necessary to cut the sausage into three particles and join together. After, roll each one into one and until we increase the length of the product. Now it is not necessary to cut it into three parts. It is necessary to divide the sausage into extremely thin pieces. Working on the beads After, it is necessary to take oura variant of colored clay and after, roll with the help of special balls. They need to be overlaid with balls with pieces of sausage made of polymer clay. After, roll the products, using the palms (between them). Let's get down to work with the needle. For this, it is necessary to do for each bead a separation of the through type, and then, to use the baking cabinets. Get the necessary information about the temperature at which the product can be baked on the package from clay. Usually, it takes from 15 to 25 minutes. After our work is completed, the beads need to get out of our oven and after, to take them into the cold water. Thus, clay with a transparent interlayer will have an even more transparent appearance. Then, the beads must be treated with a special lacquer. We apply a layer of varnish and prepare the product forto fix it on the beads. We use the alternation of different beads to get a more diverse and unique version of the product. This kind of needlework can be combined with the help of a variety of tools to recreate beautiful beads, including binders. These beads can be presented as a gift, or use them in order to update your own accessory set! It is also necessary to take additional tools and accessories to improve the appearance of the beads and add a completely new and unique version of the species to them.
