Polymer clay tutorial

ONE TUTORIAL A DAY FOR 31 DAYS – DAY 6 OF MY JOURNEY – PEARL RING

Pearl ring

It’s been rather tough to be working these days. With my son at home and my two nephews, I had very little time to concentrate on difficult and time-taking projects. But I’m not complaining, I love having a house full of children, family and friends. But I did my best not to give up my challenge. A winner never quits, a quitter never wins. And it’s always fun to play with the clay extruder!

Materials and tools used: Black professional polymer clay, pasta machine, clay extruder, liquid Fimo, a blade, black alcohol ink and pearls.

I have prepared the polymer clay and rolled it through the pasta machine. I have used the clay extruded to make some polymer clay ropes. I have used the 12 holes disc.

I have used some liquid Fimo to fix the pearl. I have captured it well going around with polymer clay ropes. I have put the ring in the oven and once cooled down,  I have painted it with black alcohol ink.

  1. Although the entire ring is black, l love the texture of the ring. The contrast between the smooth pearl and the striped ring band works really well! Keep up with this very inspiring work! Cheers! ☺

      1. During the first days, I was a little bit stressed. There were moments when I thought it would be too difficult. But now I am gaining confidence in myself and I am enjoying the ride! Thank you for encouraging me! Best wishes! Mihaela
