Polymer Clay of the Month!

Well I decided this would be a good time to introduce a new polymer clay to you. Every month I will be posting information about a color of clay. If you want to determine the next month's clay color, as well as tips of how to use that color, answer this small poll in the comments section!

Q: What color of clay would you like to see for October?

A: "Night Glow"
B: "Light, Flesh"
C: "Tropical Green"

For the month of August I give you:

"Glitter Blue Fimo Effect"

I love glitter and blue is my favorite color thus it shouldn't be a surprise that I picked this clay. Glitter Blue Fimo clay gives a little sparkle and it makes a great base for pendants or use it to make faux metallics!

Here is an example of what this clay looks like on a pendant I made that I am now selling on Etsy:

This picture really shows the sparkle!

With other colors Glitter Blue Fimo Effect looks great, I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs just a hint of blue sparkle. :)

I love the fimo metallics! I think they add such interest to the beads I make. It just takes a little to give a unique 'glow'.

I completely agree with you reny. :) I also add in my own glitter to plain clay for a little bit of sparkle.

Oh wow that Gliter Bloue looks fantastic!

Reny said...

cb, what kind of glitter do you add? I haven't had much luck with inclusions.

CB said...

kylie b: It is pretty isn't it? :)

reny: I use very thin and small glitter, usually "Fairy Dust" or "Multi-Color." Also after the items are baked I put on a thin coat of Pledges Floor Polish (with Future Shine).
