Faux amber polymer clay bracelet - DIY tutorial

Below you will find the approximate measure of the clay you will use in this class.

Let’s get to the actual process:

Step 1:

From the orange and yellow translucent clay we will create a gradient sheet. If the two images below are not enough for you, please use this gradient tutorial.

Step 2:

Roll the gradient sheet you created before and add on the edges: one line of translucent, one line of brown, one larger piece of translucent, one piece of peach with one brown line over it. For the best effect you should follow this specific order for the polymer clay colors.

Step 3:

As the third step of the process you have to thin the roll that you just created, cut small pieces of sausage and then curl the small pieces. Use the photos below if the explanations aren’t enough for you.

Step 4:

Take the curls and tilt them until you form a rectangle. The height of the rectangle must match the width of the beads you want to create.

Step 5:

Cut the rectangle in pieces that have the same thickness.bake them and give them holes (in what order do you want. It may be more comfortable to cook before baking them). Use a protective lacquer or eventually to give more glow to the product.

Congrats! if you got up to the step it means you are the happy owner of a beautiful faux amber polymer clay bracelet!
