How to create a 2 color flipped polymer clay veneer tutorial Year of Veneer
November 06, 2019
To begin, you'll need to choose clay and paint colors. I chose Navy and rose gold, a nice complementary color scheme. I used DecoArt Rose Gold metallic paint and Liquitex Basics in Pthalo blue.
I started with Copper Premo Accents and added Ranger Adirondack ink in Cranberry and Crimson- a generous 5-7 drops of each color. Spread the ink on the clay, let it dry, and blend it in to create a rosey-gold clay color.
For the blue color, I started with Premo Periwinkle and added a bit of black to deepen the shade and Ultramarine blue to make it, well, more blue! I also added a few drops of Indigo ink.
Once I was satisfied that the clay colors matched the paint colors, I was ready to silkscreen. I used the Free Spirit pattern.
I also used a butterfly cutter from the Lisa Pavelka designer collection to make my shape!
