Vanden Broeck’s metal techniques in polymer

This colorful bangle by Belgium’s Moïse Vanden Broeck traps extruded canes between two polymer clay plates. Moise brings a metalworker’s eye to his polymer work as in this additional bracelet design and these rings.

He also explains how to create a cutter tool using rotary blades which is an update on the original tube bead cutter by Elise Winters.

Nice to have a few mental exercises to get us in shape for the studio week ahead.

        When I put this page through babelfish – I got this hilarious translation:

        “As usual search of form and color; technique used claygun large square end to carry out the wife-swapping parties. To manufacture the black plates fimo; 2 metal aluminium gauges hammered to give the form and hammered of surface. I obtained the final form by compressing the whole between the two metal plates. Cooking in a part between the two metal plates which I withdrew still hot after cooking.”
