Faux Polymer Clay Techniques


Summary: 55 faux polymer clay techniques divided into categories. Includes tutorials for mokume gane, wood, common stones, semi -precious stones, millefiori and  shell. In addition, I included man made materials such as glass, enamel and pewter.

Using the correct faux polymer clay techniques, an artist can imitate virtually any material.  That means, for the cost of a bar or two of clay, you can create faux stained glass ornaments, opal rings and ivory boxes. Pretty cool, huh?
