Fabric Textured & Inked
(11 pages, 20 images) $4.00.
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 contains 2 parts, - the first is "The Basics" portion which details the tile construction portion (layers 2 & 3) as well as extra's such as "Creating a trim", "Creating an Inverse texture sheet" and "Sample Tile Templates". The second part covers the surface technique (layer 1).
