Polymer with hardware

Picarello on Polymer Clay Daily

Julie Picarello mixes new icy colors for her latest glacier-inspired
polymer beads. In her popular YouTube video she explains her basic process.

Julie prowls the hardware stores for some of the odd metal accents that she embeds in the clay.

She’s been including tinted epoxy resin in her recent pieces at the suggestion of fellow hardware lover Robert Dancik. The two shared a table as they worked on collaborative projects for the Polymer Clay Master Class book and the creative sparks flew.
