I've been working on several projects for my jewelry designs this year, some come out wonderfully &
some will stay buried deep because they are so awful, & some are just not my favorite so I put them aside. One that I have been very pleased with is my leather suede look polymer clay.
I experimented with several different colors one day, I didn't want a real shiny look and was trying to find the right texture and color that wouldn't require a gloss or a clear coat, when I scrunched left over clay from 2 different projects together and came out with a happy mixture that looks like leather!
The first time I mixed them I didn't pay attention to how much of each there was, so I had to go back and experiment with it for a while until I found the right mixture again, then I had to find more clay to work with, they were also two different brands, one Fimo the other Sculpy.
then I added a copper bail to it and baked it, so far they have turned out very well.
These are some of the samples and designs that have come out of that experiment.
