Faux semi-precious stones (the limitless possibilites of polymer clay)




Here are a few of my faux pieces that I have been happy about how they came out. The faux amber is different shades of translucent clay mixes with copper mica clay, then accented with alcohol based inks in the fissures and glazed. The turquoise fissures actually contain REAL DIRT and it was fun "playing in the mud" to get that effect. Finally, the carved jade is a mix of different greens, accented with acrylic paint and stamped to get the carved look and feel. You can see other examples here.
