While I haven't posted in 3 years, I haven't stopped making jewelry or working with polymer clay.
While I no longer do any rubber stamping/card making, I still have a lot of my rubber stamps and texture plates that I still use on polymer clay. Recently I discovered a cool site for stampers called
Lindy's Stamp Gang. You may have heard of them. They sell wonderful colors in various forms like powders and sprays. I decided to try their Color Shots, in Jamaican Jungle because it was reduced in price, maybe being discontinued, and I liked the colors.
They came in a set of 5 colors, all in not so tiny plastic containers with the colored powders. They are meant to be mixed with hot water, or various mediums like acrylic medium or alcohol. There is plenty of room in each container to add whatever medium you want and to mix and store in.
What I wanted to do was mix the powders with translucent liquid polymer clay. I searched the internet and could not really find anything on using the Shots with liquid clay, although their site does say you can use whatever medium you choose and to experiment.
Now, I do not want to mix the entire amount of each powder with liquid clay- I may want to try other mediums, and this experiment is still in progress. But here I will show you what I found so far.
I took another container that I had with a rubber lid-hopefully it will keep my medium fresh- and squeezed in some Liquid Kato Polyclay in clear. I took a plastic spoon and added about 1/8 of a teaspoon. I really didn't measure, but I did not use too much liquid clay or color. I mixed it with a toothpick and it mixed in well, no grit that I could see.
Then I spread some of the mixture on a piece of cardstock with the toothpick and baked it according to the manufacturers directions-about 275 for 20-30 minutes. I forgot to set the timer, hee hee.
I hope this experiment can be of use to anyone who likes to make jewelry with polymer clay and trying new things.
May God Bless and keep you.
