The idea of Stamping and Coloring on Polymer Clay was inspired by a “That’s Clever” TV show featuring artist Karen Lorraine. She showed how to make a pendant with Mokume Gane on one side and, after baking, she drew a face on the other side of the pendant using oil pencils. Fascinated with the ability to draw on clay, I was challenged to try to create fine art and portraits using oil pencils on a baked polymer clay cabochon.

In addition to the full demonstration on Polymer Clay Productions, the first half of the video is on YouTube. The reason for this is that the full demo is 21 minutes long and YouTube only allows a 10 minute video to be uploaded.
Making the video with Ilysa and Kira at Fandango was easy and a lot of fun.
What a great hobby, playing in clay and coloring!
