Today I used our long silkscreens to make a cuff bracelet. The beauty of these long silkscreens is you can create one long design that will fit a cuff or necklace and you don't have to piece things together! I don't know about you but that's never fun trying to get rid of seems and such. I ended up finishing the cuff using my metal stamps to add a little more to the bracelet, you can also find those in our shop. I decided I like to leave my clay on the metal cuff rather than pull it off and make it double thickness. To me it is less chunky but you can do what you like best many people bake it on the metal cuff and pull it off and add a double layer of clay to help thicken it, it is up to you but I did leave mine on the metal form.

Anyway today I show what I did with the Liquid Sculpey and our Create Along Pentagon graduated size cutters. I was given a great tip from Iris Weiss of Polyform and that was to make sure and bake the clear Liquid Sculpey at 300 degrees F. It will not ruin the other clay these directions come directly from the makers of the clay. However to be cautious if you are using a light or white color clay I would tent it so it doesn't discolor. Thats just my thoughts better safe than sorry.

I thought it would be fun to make a multi petal layered flower today, and use a simple technique to create a domed center. I chose the complementary colors of orange and turquoise metallics, and a slightly less shimmery gold color to allow the shine of the turquoise to really pop.

Those who know me know that I wake up way too early and I discovered the foil stenciling on polymer clay technique in one of my 4AM experiment sessions. I like to think of different ways to use products and this was one way to use our NEW foils and our NEW mylar jewelry sized stencils. The possibilities are endless on what you can make. The brick stencil with the foils would make an amazing fairy house! In fact I just found an egg shaped jar and I plan to use it on that. So stay tuned for that and get your stencils and foil ready for some cool stuff! I share how to do the foil stenciling technique on today's Polymer Clay TV video. I can't wait to see what creative ideas you can come up with. Make sure to share them with us in Polymer Clay Tribe our free Facebook group. We have over 10,000 members who love sharing so come join the fun.

I am all about experimenting and this came about in one of my early morning experimental sessions. I wanted to find a way to have the metal leaf in the outline of the design and this worked perfectly! It looks like its so hard and time consuming to create but its really easy. Hope you will give it a shot!
