Mica Powder on Polymer Clay

Learn two techniques for using mica powders on polymer clay.

Two Techniques

Making jewelry and working with polymer clay are passions of mine. I know I don’t share a lot of it here. I think I get caught up in creating and I forget to take pictures and video the process. But today I am sharing two different ways I use mica powder on polymer clay for jewelry making. One is a stamping technique and the other is a using a stencil.

Materials:

  • black polymer clay
  • stencil
  • stamp

How to Make Polymer Clay and Mica Earrings

What the entire process of making polymer clay earrings using mica powder.

This post is a part of the DCC (Designers Craft Connection) Group. We are sharing our favorite materials and products. For me, that was a bit difficult to choose as I like working with a variety of different materials. I ultimately chose to work with polymer clay and making jewelry. It is a material I have worked with for a long time, although I don’t post a lot about it.

Polymer Clay and UV Resin Earrings

I am really excited about the results I am achieving with this technique. I think I have only just scratched the surface of the possibilities. I really like how the paint (DecoArt Interference)¬†changes from white to colors when applied to a dark surface. The UV Resin really enhances the colors and gives emphasis to the dimension. I’ve only made earrings so far but I look forward to making pendants and more. The colors are so pretty and work together well.
