Adding Glitter and Embossing Powder to Polymer clay and Stencil Designs

Adding Glitter and Embossing Powder to Polymer clay and Stencil Designs

I had this chunky glitter that I bought to use with polymer clay but it's been sitting around a while so I thought I would see what I could do with it. I pulled out some of our Flexie stencils and started to play. However this glitter is really chunky and I didn't think it would stay on the clay. So I thought Liquid clay would be the solution. I wanted to see how different it would look with different colors of liquid clay and it really does make a difference. As I always say the sky is the limit!

I played around with white, clear and gold Liquid Clay but there are so many other colors on the market and even better you can mix your own too!. I did however end up sealing mine with a spray sealer that worked really well. I used a product called Helmar Crystal Kote Matte and you can find more info about it at this link.  It worked awesome and is truly a matte finish. Another plus it dried super fast for me, of course it was a hot day in Florida but I was impressed. The company sent Kira and I each a matte and shiny but I have only used the matte and I am now a big believer! I do plan to do a show using both so you can compare the results and see what you think so stay tuned for that. 

I also had some red embossing powder that I thought would be perfect for our New Hot Lips Flexie and it was! I love how embossing powder puffs up it really was the right look for the stencil. Hope you will give this technique a try. ***Leave a comment on this post and I will pick 2 random winners and send you a bottle of Sculpey Liquid Clay and a few other goodies. I will choose the winners next week. Good luck!

UPDATE: Congrats to Babette for winning the prize. Stay tuned for more giveaways!

Thanks for the tutorial. As a newbie I didn’t even know about the liquid clay. Love the bling idea.
