Polymer Clay Day 66: Artful Heart Pendant

I made this using a striped jelly roll. Sounds yummy, but eating clay = BAD. Anyway… it is a simple technique that produces a pretty cool effect. I textured the back to hide blemishes and fingerprints that inadvertently occur when handling raw clay. I actually like the look of this piece with it’s natural mica glimmer, so I left as is instead of coating with sealant. So unlike me, but it is ok. When using something like gold leaf or Pearl Ex mica powders, a sealant is necessary to prevent tarnishing and loss of mica. One way around this in the case of mica powders is to use Perfect Pearls by Ranger, which has a built in resin and requires no sealant if baked into the clay 🙂
