Step 1: Where do I start?
Select and mix your desired polymer clay color.
In my example I tried to come close to the color of the beads I was using in my necklace.
Blending polymer is a trial and error process for me. If you are making a pendant that will just be strung on cord, you can mix the polymer to whatever color you wish.
You should print out a 1x2 domino size graphic. I print mine on gloss photo paper. You must make sure the ink is dry and water resistant before you cover it with any gloss. If your ink is not water resistant, you can use public laser printers to print out your graphic designs or spray your printout lightly with a sealant.
Graphic designs can be designed by you or purchased over the internet. Nature’s Sol does sell digital graphic downloads.
Step 2: Size up your clay.
Do not press the graphic into the clay. Just simply lay it on the clay.
Step 3: Shape the domino.
Cure the polymer. I sand the edges when the gloss step is complete to the finished size I desire.
Step 4: Prepare tile for gloss.
Tape around the outer edge of the polymer tile. I do this so that the gloss does not run off the edges of the tile.
I use scotch tape. You can use any tape which is easy to remove when done.
