Polymer clay is a versatile and exciting medium for crafting stunning pieces of art. In this blog post, we will explore the process of creating beautiful polymer clay pieces using a combination of polymer clay tools: white polymer clay, pastel chalk, a paintbrush, alcohol ink, a paint palette, and disposable eyeshadow brushes. With the intricate designs of Hello Cutters Polymer Clay Cutters Sea Collection, your creations are sure to make waves! Here is a link to the polymer clay cutter used in this example..

The Process

Step 1: Condition and Cut Out using Hello Cutters Polymer Clay Cutters

Conditioning your white polymer clay, ensuring it is soft and pliable. As the Sea Collection Polymer Clay Cutters feature intricate designs, it's recommended to use corn starch on the clay to prevent sticking or tearing off the pieces from the cutter. Carefully cut out your desired shapes.

Optional: add any additional details to the fins or other areas using your clay tools.

Step 2: Assemble and Prepare Your Polymer Pieces

After cutting out your clay pieces, using Hello Cutters Polymer Clay Cutters, place them on a clean surface, ensuring they are spaced far apart from each other to avoid any transfer of chalk dust. This step guarantees that your colors remain vibrant and distinct.

Step 3: Create a Color Palette

Create a color palette with pastel chalk by scraping some pastel chalk into individual piles, using a paint tray or any suitable container as your palette. Now, grab a disposable eyeshadow brush and dip it into the darkest color from your palette. Apply the pastel chalk to the white clay, focusing on areas where you want shading and depth. Gradually build up the color to achieve the desired effect. Once you're satisfied with the shading, switch to a clean side of the brush and dip it into a lighter color. Blend the lighter color onto the clay piece, creating a beautiful blend pattern that suits your artistic vision.
