Translucent polymer clay tutorial

Translucent polymer clay is not completely transparent like glass (though you can get some very nice glass-like effects with translucent clay). To get color effect you can use paint or normal clay. Be careful with the quantity of color otherwise you will lose the translucent clay effect.

You can use translucent polymer clay to make beads, earrings, bracelets, necklace, rings or even decor objects. This translucent clay gives you unimaginable options.

Below is a innovative way to use translucent polymer clay: a combination of mokume gane technique with gold leaf. The result is so special! I think the pictures speak for themselves, but I add one explanation: to see the golden area much more intense do not use too much color and do very very thin sheet
