STEP ONE

COLOUR SCHEME

Select a feature colour and complimentary colour palate of polymer clay to work with.

The palate may include white and black so that you can create ‘tints’ and ‘shades’ of your colours.

Here we have used: Red Hot Red, Beige and Just Orange

STEP TWO

EXPERIMENTAL MIXING

Start by mixing two pure colours together. You will create beautiful bright colours.

For pastels and tonal variations, experiment by mixing bright colours with a small amount of beige, white or black.

STEP THREE

MAKE YOUR BEADS

Break off small amounts of polymer clay. Roll the clay between the palms of your hands to form round beads.

Flatten round beads slightly by pressing down on them lightly to form ‘tyre’ shapes.

Experiment with making textures on the surface of the beads.

Make a hole through the finished bead with a skewer.

Bake.
