If autumn has you itching to get back to nature, revisit the woodsy section on Kathleen Dustin’s site. Her polymer rocks snuggle comfortably against the Mountain Laurel wood focal. The group is suspended on a 19″ steel cable to form her Architectural Neckpiece. She integrates polymer gracefully with natural forms in her woods and beach series.
Here’s a free 3-minute tutorial on wishing stones to inspire you to try your hand at rocks. The video is short and reminds me of how much fun it is to make realistic rocks using translucent polymer colored with distress powders (or spices).
Kathleen is preparing for the Craft2Wear trunk show at the Smithsonian in October and the American Craft Exposition in Chicago. Catch up with her and see some of her newest works on Facebook.
So natural and real. Congrats on the wonderful work! <3
Cynthia makes gorgeous rocks!!!! I’m going to brag about her and tell you to go get the full video on how she does it. It’s one of my favorite! You can read about it here: https://www.craftcast.com/recordings/making-beach-pebbles-polymer-clay-cynthia-tinapple
Thank you so much! <3

Great video, quick and succinct. “Faux pitting”–love it!
