Polymer future unfolds

Hyde on PCDaily

Look for more folds this year. Here you see Susan Hyde wrap her fabric-like sheet around curled snakes to create a brooch that you can find on Facebook.

Her fabric tutorial is still my all-time favorite.

Then Dan Cormier combines three techniques he’s researched into one in this Blurred Lines brooch.

A veneer of blurred colors runs over a light folded background until it hits a dieformed dark area.

This brooch is featured on the cover of Dan and Tracy’s newest e-book, Blurred Lines: Blended Patterns in Polymer Clay, that the duo will offer online soon. Read the whole story here. Are folds in your future?

    I don’t think it’s possible for Dan Cormier to make anything that isn’t perfectly crafted and stunning to look at!

      My first Susan Hyde “cane” lasted me many years. It is time to do a new one! Love those colors.

            Oh my god, that was 19 years ago. I’m really old now, guys, really old. LOL

            Very beatiful and above all interesting and unusual. I love it!

              the stripes in Dan’s piece remind me of the technique Lindly taught in a class I took. Too cool how many people can approach the same idea in such a variety of ways. Lovely work.
