Faux Stoneware from Polymer Clay!

I was checking in with some blogger pals tonight and was surprised by the post on the Polymer Clay Tutor's site. Cindy Lietz is such a pro, I am always so impressed by her work!

I have never seen something like this in polymer clay, so I wanted to share it right away! FAUX STONEWARE!

Here is what Cindy wrote about this:

"The beauty of polymer clay is that it is the great pretender. It will mimic all kinds of materials including metal, glass and stone. One thing it does really well, is copy the look of ceramic and stoneware.

Many polymer clay artists have their own way of getting the look of faux ceramic and stoneware, using a variety of different techniques. Most of them use liquid polymer clay. I find that although the liquid polymer does give wonderful look, it still lacks the shine of real ceramic or stoneware glaze. So a further finish is usually needed.

I have come up with a faux stoneware or ceramic technique that gets that glassy glazed look, in one easy step. I think you are really going to enjoy it."

Thanks so much to Cindy for always having something new and interesting to teach!
