How to use mylar metal foils for grunge effects on polymer clay

How to use mylar metal foils for grunge effects on polymer clay

In this video you'll see how to apply mylar backed metallic foils to make veneers. Special effects can be achieved such as fine crackle and aged metal. 

For the earrings shown, I used the Grunge Foils color light gold, oxidized copper, and rose gold. I cut out the medium and small Moon cutter shapes and started stacking! The tiny triangle is for the Mini Triangle plunger set.

If you love our project ideas, won't you pin this blog post to your favorite pin board? It helps us share our love for polymer clay!

Want to win the earrings? Leave me a comment, question, or your own tips for using mylar foils and I'll pick a random winner on Saturday :)
