Well-known California mosaic artist Susan Crocenzi says, “I am currently going through a major polymer clay bender. You wouldn’t believe how many tiles and doo-dads I’ve created over the past month!”
She sees polymer as an amazing material, especially for mosaic artists. “You can make tiles in the size, shape, and thickness you need! You can create super-flashy textured embellished colorific tiles, or quiet, flat, subtle ones. Seriously, this stuff’s flexibility will amaze you,” she gushes.
Here’s the info on her September 9 class in Portland, OR. Flip through her Instagram to see how she combines handmade polymer clay tiles with mosaic materials, most notably tempered glass.
If mixing media makes your heart sing, the flash and sparkle of mosaic might be just what your polymer muse yearns for.
Huh, interesting…never even thought about making tiles for mosaic out of Polymer Clay before. I’ve used glass pieces and ceramics, but polymer clay could open up a whole new world in mosaic!
