Desiree McCrorey has long been known for sharing her thorough experiments with polymer. Irena Saravanja’s crackled polymer surfaces started Desiree’s wheels turning and she headed back to her science lab/studio.
Desiree offers her results to you and they’re fascinating. She’s tested lots of ways to crackle the clay with a heat gun using various utensils and methods to arrive at very different results. She may inspire you to add more tests of your own.
CORRECTION: The work of France’s Agnes Dettai was what prompted Desiree’s exploration. You’ll find the inspiration on Agnes’ Flickr site.
