This is the 2nd of a series of 4 PDF-format tutorials giving instructions for creating polymer clay tiles using 5 different surface techniques using rubber stamps.
This technique uses a rubber stamp in the traditional paper crafting method of inking and stamping.But in this case we are stamping on clay.What is special about this technique is the use of a texture which results in a beautiful subtle fabric-like surface with just a touch of shine.It’s a truly unique effect.
A tile consists of 3 layers – the decorative 1st layer and the back layers 2 and 3, which provide the channel for the cording.The tutorial is sold as 2 PDF documents – the first is “The Basics” document which details the tile construction portion (layers 2 & 3) as well as extras such as “Creating a trim”, “Creating an Inverse texture sheet” and “Sample Tile Templates”. The second document covers the surface technique (layer 1). Together the 2 documents total 11 pages and 20 images at a cost of $4.00 CAD.
