Making Watercolor Agate with Polymer Clay
Have you ever looked at a stone that seemed to have worlds inside of it, with swirls and ribbons of magical color? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to make this material in any color with the materials you already have in your art supplies? Watercolor Agate is my name for this fascinating (and addictive) process for making a faux stone matrix that you can use to make jewelry, cover glass vessels, or even use to make coasters or tiles for your bathroom wall. In this 70 page tutorial, I’ll show how to make the Watercolor Agate matrix and help you explore endless variations. I illustrate this technique by making contemporary earrings, but you can use the matrix for making whatever you’d like. This is an incredibly fun and fascinating process. Purchase includes the online self-guided course and optional PDF download if that’s more your jam.
