Polymer with hardware

Picarello on Polymer Clay Daily

Julie Picarello mixes new icy colors for her latest glacier-inspired

Julie prowls the hardware stores for some of the odd metal accents that she embeds in the clay.

She’s been including tinted epoxy resin in her recent pieces¬†at the suggestion of fellow hardware lover Robert Dancik. The two shared a table as they worked on collaborative projects for the Polymer Clay Master Class book and the creative sparks flew.
