Mixing polymer digitally

Burgess on PCDaily

The UK’s Jon Burgess brings his computer drawings to polymer in the ways that don’t have the usual hard-edge digital transfer look.

He’s working on ways to camouflage the seams on round and tube beads and hints that he’s working on a tutorial.


If you’re not in love with your phone’s camera and editing software and printing, you may not share Jon’s enthusiasm (and mine). To us the mash-up of polymer and computers looks like a big unexplored territory with lots of possibility.

See Jon’s very personal way of mixing media on Etsy, Facebook and his blog.

    I’ve admired Jon’s beads for quite some time. They
    look like they’ve come from some archeological dig…and I absolutely mean that as a compliment

      I’ve been following Jon’s blog for quite a while now – even patiently waiting for another post during his move! I was more than delighted when these came out of that wait!! Jon’s work is absolutely incredible and totally inspiring!! Thank you for featuring his work. He really deserves recognition!
