It is always fun when you buy something new to use on your polymer clay creations isnt it ?
I chose to buy Debbie Bulfords new texture sheets which are extremely good value, giving 5 textures in one packet. I have ordered from Debbie before and have always been pleased with the quality and dispatch time of her products
In the 2nd picture, you can see the two texture sheets I chose for my project. I tried the first texture but didnt have an awful lot of success with itas it was a little shallow. I contacted Debbie and she said that particular texture would be better on metal clay. Not to be deterred however, I did use that sheet and once highlighted (as you will see in my designs) I had success. The best way I found was to press my thumbs down and walk them over the texture sheet a couple of times. I used water as a release which is okay with the Sculpey Premo I use (not all polymer clays though). Debbie provided very concise instructions as illustrated in the photo on the right.
Once I had finished with the texturing, I used Liquitex acrylic inks which dont have the fading issues of alcohol inks and then highlighted with pan pastels. I think the finished items have a look of old pottery, what do you think?
Thanks Debbie for selling these great tools !
