Opals are my favorite gemstone! I’m always trying to find better ways to make faux opals with polymer clay, resin, and other mediums. I have tried making faux opals with other liquid clays, but they were never as clear as I wanted. So, I recently tried to make opals using Lucy Clay‘s Glassymer. This is the only liquid clay that layer after layer cured totally clear. It’s amazing and I’ve been making so many faux opals using it! There’s a lot of waiting time in this tutorial, but it’s not difficult, meaning even polymer clay beginners can give it a try.
Now, let’s do some magic!
