What is The Difference in Translucent Polymer Clays
As you may have noticed, I enjoy working in translucent polymer clay. I have worked with several clay brands and the new Pardo translucent is the clearest and most transparent that I have found. I use alcohol inks for the color in the hollow beads I create. After mixing in the ink, I form a thin layer on the glass Christmas bulbs, then bake. With my glasses on and a large set of pliers and gently crush the glass inside the bead into a lined trash can. I'm always looking for different shapes to use for beads. Then create a design for the beads into a necklace. The necklaces are so very light weight and easy to wear. You'll feel like checking to see if you are still wearing it!
I was purchasing Pardo clay at Hobby Lobby, but now need to purchase on line. It is not always easy to get Pardo Translucent. I am writing a tutorial on creating hollow translucent beads and will promote soon.
