Mica Powder/Alcohol Inks Combination
(11 pages, 17 images) $4.00.
This is the 1st of a series of 4 PDF-format tutorials giving instructions for creating polymer clay tiles using 5 different surface techniques using rubber stamps.
Surface Technique 1 uses a combination of mica powders and alcohol inks and a generous layer of varathane to produce a lovely glazed ceramic look to your tiles.
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 document covers the surface technique (layer 1).
