Polymer Clay Journey: "Faux" Turquoise Tutorial

If you like having fun watching other people makes creative messes, then you have come to the right place!
Yay, finally the "Faux" Turquoise tutorial is complete! Well technically, because the variations are endless when it comes to faux stone. Now just like I explained in the video, the word "Faux" is in quotations because I enjoyed creating my own variations of Turquoise. That means this tutorial is not for anyone seeking an authentic turquoise look. Contrary to real turquoise, there is sparkle and striations that you don't find in the original.

Watch And Learn Here:

The colours I used....
All Premo brand, Peacock Pearl, Bright Green Pearl and Turquoise. In one variation I did use the white Pearl.

Coming soon, will be a talk and review about UV resin because that is what I tried to do with the pieces I made with my turquoises.

Hope you are inspired to try creating your own faux stone variations.
Thanks for stopping by.

Polymer Clay Journey: Bead-making - How I Use Veneers

The video that goes with this article can be viewed right here below:

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you had a great week. What were you creating this week? Any extra special projects? Did you learn anything new about your favourite art making method? If you want to share any answers, we would LOVE to hear from you and even see your creations too! The best way to do that is head off to our Facebook group:  HeArtfully Creating Group (click here.)  
My cabochons and beads
The video that goes with this article can be viewed at the top of the page.
What have I been working on? As always, a variety of projects but this one in particular. I love the colour turquoise. Now we all know there are many variations of turquoise... greeny blue, bluey - green, tropical ocean blue, peacock blue....that is just how colours are. Well, I have been mixed varieties of colours trying to create a faux turquoise stone effect. Not the true stone look which is more chalky, opaque and basically one shade of a turquoise, but, Anita's version... multiple tints and tones of blues to blue greens. I just love creating depth and interest. The sample picture below of real turquoise is just one kind of blue. They are not all the same.
These are REAL TURQUOISE stones

This tutorial is about the basics of how to make beads using a polymer clay veneer. You can use the same technique using whatever veneer in polymer clay you want. Please watch the video to see how easy it is. As well see the other projects I used the veneers on.

My Top Veneer Bead Making Tips...
1. Make sure your bead core or foundation clay colour works with the veneer you are using. (see more about that in the video.) Also make sure the bead core clay type is strong enough to hold the shape you will want. Experiment by baking a bead or two first. I have learned lessons the hard way by NOT testing things out first!
2. If it matters to you that you can replicate the same look/colours by making other batches/blends in the future, be sure to record the exact brands of clay, portions/ratios and their colour names. Because I am a wing it, impulse person, I tend to make large blend mixes since I know I won't be replicating the exact same look again. That way I usually have more than enough to create what I want.
 3. Make your bead holes before baking and enter into the clay on both sides to avoid a pokey clay nub.

Learn about Baking your own poly clay beads...See how I made my own bead baking rack CLICK HERE. To learn what I have about bead baking  CLICK HERE. And to learn about the Amaco bead baking rack that I talk about click HERE.

My next tutorial, with better "how to" footage, will be a faux turquoise tutorial. However, because I have enjoyed creating some great cabochons an jewellery pieces, I thought it would be fun to share how to use the veneers made with the turquoise blends first, hoping to stir interest in creating a faux stone blend/veneer. To learn how I made some of my turquoise blends, be sure to subscribe so you can receive notifications as they happen. 

Here is my first batch of faux turquoise (no two batches are the same)





Final note... It has been a productive few weeks. So much so, I even got to list a piece of jewellery created using one of my turquoise blends! Click here, if you want to see.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you are inspire to create.

Polymer Clay Journey: Video - Creating A Fantasy Gemstone Pendant Part #1

I just listed this great piece in my Etsy shop! Just click here to see! 
Been having great fun creating fantasy style pendants using polymer clay, gemstones and nail art powders that have colour shifting abilities. They are called chameleon and the Pear Ex mica powders that can shift from one colour to the other are called DUO.

Since I have completed about four pendants, it seemed best to share each pendant in separate videos to avoid one long boring one! Because creating is my main focus I don't get to turn each piece into a tutorial, but I do try to take process photos so I can share my work as it happens and afterward. Then I can offer some hopefully useful information, that might inspire you to create an artistic piece of jewellery.

A Side Note: A watcher recently commented on one of my non-tutorial videos about how it would be more interesting to watch, if I showed the making "it" process. So I am writing the following to address their comment. Of course I also have tutorials as they happen too and Kudos to those great artists who faithfully create tutorials, I know how much time, planning and work it takes to put them together. As much as I love teaching the art making process, and wish it was easier to film/edit and upload tutorials. Because I have physical restrictions,  my husband has to be home to help me set up and move around my camera. So I definitely do the tutorials when I can. Since taking photos is fairly easy for me, I can compile them to make videos like the one below. It may not be a detailed "how to make it," tutorial, but I do hope it stimulates those creative juices!
WATCH here right below:
Materials:
I used...
πŸ’“It is easier to work on a ceramic tile that you can slip into the oven once you are done.
πŸ’“ Keep your tools and surfaces clean with rubbing alcohol and baby wipes
πŸ’“ A dark mix of Premo polymer clay
πŸ’“ chameleon nail art powders
πŸ’“ A largish gemstone cabochon (a Labradorite stone -about 30mm x 20mm).
πŸ’“ flatback crystals
πŸ’“ Liquid Polymer Clay or Bake and Bond
πŸ’“ Shaping and sculpting tools
πŸ’“ Dedicated baking pan, ceramic tile, aluminium foil to cover clay while baking.

The Process
My clay pieces are one of a kind so I can't tell you exactly how to copy anything. Instead, I am here to encourage you to create your own original work. Looking at the pictures for ideas, create your piece. Many artists pre-plan their work, sketching and drawing it out. If you follow my youtube channel and/or this blog, you know that is not how I create. When it comes to art making, there is no right or wrong way. Planning happens if I need to, but usually I just go with the urges to create. Whimsicalness is key.

What makes this a "fantasy" design? It is up to you, but I think using lots of decorative swirls and flowing forms  help achieve that feel. As well, using shimmery sparkly bits and pieces makes me think fantasy. Fantasy is something imaginative, not real - think Lothlorien, the Elvish home from the Hobbit/Lord of The Rings. No, I am not an expert in labelling design styles, this is my opinion only πŸ˜ƒ

The work of others inspire me. Materials inspire me. God's creation, always inspiring. I just gather what I need and begin building my piece. What is important is making it visually interesting using, line, shape, texture, colour and other elements of design.

The main step is set your cabochon in with a clay bezel and the rest is up to you. Keep reading to learn about bezels and cabochons, these are two key words used in my pendant design. 

Cabochon/Bezel Talk
You need to set your stone with a clay bezel....
Until today, I though cabochons were beads without a hole. Turns out I had it wrong, cabochons are polished, shaped stones that aren't faceted. Working with polymer clay and gemstone cabs means that we can make jewellery pieces without being a metal smith, because you can form your own bezel to hold the stone.

What is a bezel? If you are reading this or watching it on a screen then you see a large bezel every day. The bezel is the part that goes around the stone (or computer/tv screen) edges to hold it in tightly.  If you have a ring, you can probably see prongs holding on to the stone. We can set the stone with a clay prong type bezel, you just need to make sure it is well secured. I prefer pushing the stone into the clay and either letting the clay gently slip around the edges of the cabochon and letting it "hug" the stone enough to be secure. As long as it grabs just the edge well it will be secure.

You just need to barely capture the cabochon's edge with clay and it will be secure. Depending on the look you want, you can just lay it flat on the clay surface and then place a thin or wide strip of clay around the cabochon. Whichever way you choose, be sure to smooth and shape your bezel accordingly.

Decorate It!
Once the stone is secured, I decorate/design it,  building around the stone's bezel, creating a one of a kind pendant! Of course you can use the same method to set a gemstone for other pieces, like a journal cover or a brooch pin.
The fun escalates as the clay is shaped and placed down as I think it looks best. If you don't like what you did, remove it and re-do it. The beauty of polymer clay

Choose A Cabochon to Use...I used Labradorite
See the blue flash in the labradorite!
The stone I used for this pendant is one of my faves, Labradorite. God's amazing creations come in so many forms, these rocks included. What makes these one of my favourites is that they are fairly affordable (I buy mine on Ebay, from India mostly - under free shipping), that helps. But they also have an incredible feature that enables them to reflect amazing colours. The iridescence or what is often called "flash," or "labradoressence," is gorgeous.  They have a variety of colour possibilities, with really beautiful lines and depth. I suggest you read more about them by clicking here.

Make Your Own Faux  Stone
If you want to make your own version, there are great polymer clay faux stone tutorials online. Here is a favourite, Ludmila Bakulina's tutorial here.
Once my piece was done, I made sure I had a place to suspend my pendant (do that in the beginning.) Then I used liqiud clay to secure crystals and brushed the coloured powders.
I always bake my pieces for an hour or more. (if your oven if the correct temperature, you can never burn the clay.) 

Bake the piece on a ceramic tile, with foil or baking pan covering it. I completed the back after with liquid clay and textured raw clay- baking it again.
Final step, I used UV Resin.

HeArtfully Creating:Polymer Clay Journey - My First Gemstone Ring


Handmade fantasy art ring using polymer clay and chalcedony gemstone.By Anita Berglund

Happy summer guys! Have you been creating in some form or other? Hope so.
It has been a fun artistic summer so far for me. Between creating one of a kind figurines,(see here) I have been experimenting with polymer clay and gemstone pendants (coming soon) and yesterday, a new gemstone ring idea. 

This ring was totally whimsical, no pre-planning at all. Never been good at pre-planning. Because I love taking photos of what I make, I have a video below that features all angles of this pretty fantasy ring. I call it a fantasy ring or even cosplay because it has that look to it, some swirls and sparkle and a large glowing gemstone in the center! The ring itself,  was formed around a metal  cannoli cylinder. You can use any cylinder in the size you want, just wrap it in wax paper first and tape or it will be tricky to remove. For the base, I used white Premo and translucent clay and an aqua  chalcedony onion briolette gemstone with facets (about 12mm across). 

To be sure it was secure, I pushed the pointy part into the clay and surrounded it with a clay bezel and some embellishments. Unfortunately, I ended up losing half the stone in the clay. Chalcedony is an amazing stone that glows when light is near. You don't need a stone to make a ring, or you can make a faux stone out of clay or even a resin gemstone (that must be oven safe.) Then before curing in the oven for 1.25 hours at 275F, I coated the clay with a beautiful shimmering, metallic chrome nail art powder. I assume the born pretty nail art powders are mica, but am not a hundred percent sure. Hope you are inspired even a little to try creating a polymer clay ring.

HeArtfully Creating: Polymer Clay Journey - Flower Talk Tutorial

Hi artists of all ages! Hope you are enjoying your week so far. It has been a busy time as I frantically try to complete some extra special projects for some extra special friends, Check out this post to see what I am talking about.

Between that project and others, I was able to post a new basic video tutorial about creating stamens for my polymer clay flowers using the "ball to cup" style. Yes, I made that up. Not sure what to call that technique. Any ideas?

So take a watch below if you want to learn a lesson you may never have jeard of before. The lesson is a bonus along side the stamen one :0)

Watch Below!

Hope you are creatively inspired even a little.

LEARN WITH ME VIDEO SHARE: DIY Silk Screen

Do you like t-shirts with printed images on them? Do you know how those images are placed on the shirt? One technique is called Silk Screening.
This is painting by me, Anita Berglund. I paint with Acrylic paint, 
the same paint used for silkscreening on polymer clay and other surfaces.
This technique can be used on polymer clay surfaces as well as others. But today I want to share some DIY video tutorials from others on how to create your own silk screen They can be expensive and besides as a visual artist, I love very opportunity to create my own images/designs.

To Create Your Own  SILKSCREEN You will Need:
πŸ’“A pair of panty hose, piece of silk or a piece of sheer curtain 
πŸ’“A jar of Mod Podge or a decoupage medium that is dishwasher safe so the screen can be washed.
πŸ’“An image that is drawn on paper
πŸ’“A Embroidery hoop or m\a frame then duct tape to secure the screen part tightly to
πŸ’“Marker or something to draw image with
πŸ’“A Silicone or Teflon craft mat (optional)
πŸ’“One tutorial calls for using Freezer paper
When it is time to use your silkscreen on Polymer Clay, you will need:
πŸ’“acrylic paint. Or as one polymer clay video shows below, you can use the dry method. For that way, use mica, pigment or chalk powders.
πŸ’“A Squeegee or old bank card as a scraper device
πŸ’“A tub of water to wash silkscreen immediately or the paint will dry and ruin your DIY  silkscreen
πŸ’“Your polymer clay sheet, ready to be silkscreened

To inspire ideas about what silkscreen printing can do for polymer clay, first,  I will share some related videos!
POLYMER CLAY AND SILKSCREEN











DIY SILK SCREEN: MAKING THE SCREEN FOR PRINTING







I am going to try making my own design and silk  screen. When I do, I will be sharing all about that. Just need to order a few materials first!

Polymer Clay Journey: Studio Talk: Bridal Bling

 Hi guys! Decided that I had to share a short video about my recent project for a couple dear young brides to be. I have created beaded and friendly plastic hair accessories over the years, but so far have not made polymer clay hair accessories.
Below is a short video that features photos of my recent designs as well as some information you may find helpful. One lesson learned was about the "no-name" Hot fix glass crystals I bought from China on Ebay.ca. The above piece was decorated with Martha Stewart's white glitter and Pearl Ex micro Pearl mica powder.

Studio Talk: Polymer Clay Journey


A video is in the works but for now I wanted to share some pictures of some polymer clay projects that I have been working on. Got a little hooked on leaf and birdie or Tweetie making, enhanced with glass crystals that are called hot fix and are suppose to adhere to the surface when baked in the oven.  (Bought on Ebay for a low cost. A big lesson was learned that I will share in a future post.)
Tweeties
These little Tweeties are about 7-12mm long, They are all handmade with no holds or anything. That means they vary in not just sizes but the shape as well. Of course I try to make them all the same inform but so far it doesn't work out that way. These little guys are accented with teeny faceted glass eyes. They can be used for bracelets, earrings, necklaces or anywhere you want cute little birdie dangles. Some were created using a scrap clay base and covered with a polymer clay cane design. The others were created using marbled clay. It looks really interesting when you use translucent clay mixed with coloured clay and portions of clay with less translucent.
A sampling of my new wee Tweets 


Here are the leaf dangles that are sharped by hand as well. The sizes range from 12mm-about 20mm. Be sure to add bake and bond to insure the faceted glass stones adhere, even if you bought the ones called Hot Fix from Ebay. It was my first time using these. They are AB finished  and beautiful. But, I did find out the hard way that they didn't stick during baking. I   have watched a lot
of tutorials that say if you use the Swarovski brand with adhesive - you don't need to use any adhesive because the glue melds with the polymer while baking. All I can say is, test out the crystals after cooled to make sure. See , a bunch popped off after :o( However, they were not any brand name. You can embed them a little, so the clay wraps around enough to create a bezel like hold. Now I am trying bake and bond.
Below is a picture of how the glass crystals came off like nothing! 
The bling could be picked off easily!
Hope you are inspired to experiment and create in whatever medium you choose.

As I write this, I decided I will make a video to share how beautiful my new Blinged out pieces are turning out! They are intended to be for brides and such! So stay tuned :o)

HeArtfully Creating: Polymer Clay Journey - Simple Leaf Tutorial


Hi guys! Happy spring. Just wanted to share a suer simple, beginner-esque tutorial about creating a simple leaf tutorial out of Premo Polymer Clay. These are intended to be a generic type leaf and a specific kind of plant. I am not a fan of using cookie cutters or pre-made shapes, if I can. So this is about a simple, effective way to make individual leaves. Because they are handmade one by one, no two are identical. That makes your pieces unique and personal and all that more original.

Inside My Studio: Come, Watch As My Dad Builds My Customized Desk

Hi there. A few years ago my talented Dad built me a huge customized desk. I  have had the footage since then and finally got it all put together into a video. He has built so many great pieces over my 52 years, the list is endless. This is the most recent. It is great to have a lot of surface area when you use a wheelchair. It means I can store things where I can see them and access them with ease. As a visual artist, collecting art supplies is an addiction. Having a large area with easy to pull drawers makes my artistic life possible. Thank you always to my wonderful Dad, and Mom too of course. Having caring parents without special needs is a blessing, and an even bigger blessing when you do have those unique needs.

Love Of Art - Illustration Celebration

A coloured pencil and marker
illustration of a dear family we know.
Hi guys! Well I know the focus at HeArtfully Creating has been polymer clay, because that reflects where my main creative juices have been flowing into these last few years. You know what I mean! However, illustrating/drawing and painting were my number one focus or medium. And yes, painting in three dimensions, using polymer clay so to speak, has become my newest method of art making, but I still do enjoy drawing in two dimensions. However, modern technology has lead me to digital illustration. More on that in a future post.
But for today, I wanted to share a Celebration of Illustration in a video compilation of my hand drawn illustrations. Some were for fun, for gifts and because I was commissioned to illustrate for cook books and learning materials.
All of what you are about to see were created using either fine tipped permanent marker, pencil, coloured pencil, and/or coloured markers.

 Watch Celebration of Illustration Below!

Polymer Clay Journey Learn With Me- Spiral Skinner Blend Cane

 Hi guys! Hope you are all enjoying some form of creativity. It has been a productive time for me thanks to discovering those great bracelet cuff templates (check that out here) and because of some special projects for those I love. Stay tune for more about my most recent one, a special birthday gift
I got to give to my Dad yesterday. He turned 75 today! I will call it a learning experience in resin and polymer clay. You will see sometime by the weekend!

My last tutorial was about using those great bracelet cuffs but I was using a Spiral Skinner Blend Can that I just made up using some old bulls Eye canes I had. However, I was so excited about sharing that, that I didn't share how to make the purple spiral skinner blend cane. So here is the "Learn with me tutorial," on that. Just watch below. I started working on an illustration to show you how to do the skinner blend itself, but as often happens, I draw too many details and didn't get it done in time. Thankfully if you search "skinner blend tutorial" on You Tube, you will find many great tutorials. Here is one by Cool Tools.
Watch My Learn With Me Tutorial Right Below:

What You Need To Make A Spiral Skinner Blend Cane?
πŸ’“A Polymer Clay Skinner Blend Cane (about 2 inches long and about 1 inch across.
Make sure you have a contrasting outer layer of clay on the outside of your cane. I used Premo Pearl for this cobalt blue and fuschia pink cane- that creates a gorgeous purple.
Make sure you have a contrasting outer layer of clay on the outside of your cane.

Storing Or Using Your Cane
As you can see in the tutorial video and in the pics, my cane is created with spirals but once it is reduced and ready, the spirals are in various shapes. I purposely want my spirals to become abstracted designs that would work well to us in a variety of projects.
You can slice it thin or thick, depends what you want. I used it and some others as a veneer or covering to make cuff bracelets. Now even if my slices are a bit skewed, I just roll them out to join seams. That distorts them some more. Which for my purpose is cool. That way there is more variety to my pattern.

To store canes and polymer clay in general, make sure it is in a polymer safe container. I have alo rolled or covered mine in wax paper and ziploc brand plastic baggies. If they are stored for a long time, they will crack when you slice them. It is best to re-squeeze or roll them to warm them up.

Some people have no problem using old canes. I have decided they are only okay if it is a project that won't require too much flexing. In my case, the canes still seem to crack to easy and I get disappointed. Which has caused me to conclude that instead of making so many canes and even pre rolled sheets ahead of time, I should make what I need as I need it. That is just my lesson learned so far. Yet, I did have a large flower cane and it worked out well a couple years later. I think the canes with translucent clay and alcohol inks are the most prone to future cracking. You try what you want and see what happens. Room temperature makes a difference too. Warm is great for me, makes clay easier to condition. Cold temps, too frustrating to work with.

Question Time
Have you noticed a difference working with polymer clay if your environment is warmer or colder?
a) YES            b) NO         c) SOMETIMES

HeArtfully Creating,
Anita

Hope you re inspired to try making a simple fun cane like this or even making a bulls eye cane. That is the starting point for so many other great canes.
