Do you love the look of abalone? The shifting color shades of blues, purples, greens with just the amount of pearlescent shimmer are magical. After a lot of experimentation, I am excited to share my way of creating faux abalone with polymer clay! In this online workshop you'll combine colors and techniques to create realistic faux abalone polymer clay slab/veneer with just the amount of shimmer. No two results are ever exactly the same, but the results are gorgeous every time. Vary your color choices for different effects.
Also included in this workshop is a tutorial for a reversible seahorse bracelet. Faux abalone is perfect for jewelry, but it's also wonderful or covering things like boxes and home decor items.
