Introduction: Polymer Clay Journal Cover
Making a journal/diary cover with polymer clay and creating watercolor effect with alcohol based marker.
Materials used in this project:
- Notebook with hard cover
- Acrylic paint
- Polymer clay (Fimo soft)
- Alcohol based marker
- Brush with reservoir
- Epoxy glue
- Fabric ribbon
- Varnish (Optional)
Paint the cover of the notebook with acrylic paint
Make a plaque with polymer clay a little smaller than the notebook cover
Make a frame and decorate the exterior
Create the clock inside the frame
Making the doll to sit in the clock hand.
Bake it in the oven during 30 minutes at 110°C/230°F
After baking, paint a plastic surface (can be glass or metal surface too) with the alcohol based marker and dilute the color with the the brush.
This brush contains a reservoir filled with alcohol.
When painting in the polymer clay it will create a watercolor (aquarelle) effect.
If you don't have a brush with reservoir, you can use a normal brush and soak it in the alcohol.
The more alcohol we use, more diluted will be the color.
Less alcohol means more concentrated color.
Envolve cotton in a toothpick and soak it in alcohol to make little dots in the doll dress
With the marker paint the doll cheeks and Smooth it with alcohol
Use a fabric ribbon to close the journal and glue it in the front of the notebook.
Apply more epoxy glue and place the polymer clay cover
You can apply varnish (optional)
