Mysterious methods

Neumaier on PCDaily

Kathrin Neumaier has uploaded a new batch of translucent polymer earrings to Flickr. You may find it difficult to choose a favorite from these watery colored wonders.

She uses Pardo translucent clay and performs her own brand of magic to spin and swirl inks into patterns of color. Kathrin has only revealed her ingredients, the rest of the recipe remains a secret. Enjoy the mystery.

    She utterly amazes me. I work with Pardo a lot and although I can get it pretty clear, I can’t seem to get rid of inclusions when made this thick. Kathrin has created magic here. I was dazed and amazed clicking through her photostream. But then I always enjoy looking at her work.

      Wow. Now THAT is something I would love to explore. The possibilities of polymer clay are truly mind-bending. I would love to take some classes to learn some techniques like this! Enjoy the day. Erin

        I have seen Kathrin’s work on Polymer Clay Daily in the past. Her work is fantastic and I’ve wanted to try Pardo translucent clay. I understand that the US importer either has closed or no longer carries Pardo. Cynthia, do you know of any US supplier of this polymer clay?

          She is simply amazing–and yes, I am more than content to let it remain a mystery.

            Stunning! That’s the most glass-like I have ever seen polymer… If she ever shares her technique, I will sign up for the class!!

                    I own some of these now (slightly aqua colour) and they are so incredibly beautiful! I bought them at the opening of Galerie Freisleben in Bavaria! Thank you, Kathrin!
