ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I have been working since my childhood and I have tried many art and handicraft activities. In 2010 I first got to know polymer clay which fascinated me with its possibilities. I have attended several courses of Czech and foreign artists that inspire my work. Creation brings me joy and relaxation from everyday worries.
Condition some white clay, run it through the pasta machine on the widest setting and cut two squares the same size as LC Microstencils.
Roll the LC Microstencil with a roller into the white square and apply some black acrylic paint. Immediately remove the Microstencil and clean the paint off the Microstencil with a wet wipe, let it dry fully.
Take a dry Microstencil and roll it into the second white square and apply the red acrylic paint, immediately remove the template and clean it. Let the paint dry fully.
With a cutter, cut out 2 shapes of different sizes – smaller size for the black square and a bigger size for the red one.
Using the big cutter, cut out a corner of the smaller black square. Put both squares on a tile and bake for 20 minutes at 110°C.
Apply some liquid polymer LC Glassymer Transparent gel and bake for 20 minutes at 110°C. Let the squares cool down.
Apply some Polypasta to the edges of the squares. Run a long sheet of black polymer clay through the pasta machine at the medium setting. Cut a strip as wide as the thickness of the squares and wrap the shapes. Place the squares together and bake for 20 minutes at 110°C.
Prepare a slice of black polymer clay at a medium setting, texture it with a texturing sponge. Apply Polypasta over the backside, put it on the sheet, cut out with a scalpel.
Place the brooch bridge, cover it with a rectangle, press it. Bake for 30 minutes at 130°C.
Good luck and enjoy it!
