FOCUS ISSUES: Liquid Clay
Liquid clay continues to grow in popularity. The diverse color options and the mediums people experiment with using as additives are almost endless. Beyond molding, which is awesome in itself, you can do so many unique things with liquid clay. In this issue, we explore just a few of them. Our readers have asked for more non-jewelry ideas, and this month we deliver!

Sandy Huntress makes fun window clings. Of course, we also have some fabulous jewelry projects to share too. I explored creating freeform faux fuzed glass, and I'm addicted to this technique now! Organic "Honesty" jewelry by Jackie Newton is on my must try list. We've also got a whimsical fish bowl pendant by Anastasia Kondel, and a tutorial by Angela Thompson for paint pouring which I can't wait to try.
In The Color Corner with Jessica Hager, Jessica shares luscious recipes for a color palette inspired by a "Summer Cupcake."
