Marbling 1 Tutorial

Hello everyone :)

I just opened a secondary shop on etsy called Sweet & Savory Tutorials .  After many requests I decided to start offering tutorials.  They are made in document form with lots of photos.  Right now there are only a couple tutorials there, and I will add more as I am creating new batches of my miniatures.  I am starting with the easy ones.

Here on the blog I will occasionally have links to free tutorials on specific techniques I use.  The first one is Marbling 1 .  It is a very fun, and easy technique that I use all the time.

I tend to have cold hands, and it takes a long time for me to condition clay.  I use this technique to condition the clay for all my projects, I use it conditioning single colors, to mix colors until they are combined completely, and I use it to get a marbled or striped look.

 It is very subtle in my tea cups, but if you click on the image to enlarge it you can see the stripes in my cups and saucers.  I do marble them. :)

If you play with polymer clay, and don't marble yet, give it a try.  I hope you have fun with it!
