Member Project Photos – Rocker Beads Polymer Clay Jewelry

Polymer Clay Artists “Just signed up for
the membership & am
so very excited. I’m new to
working with clay and love
this rocker bead…. very
cool!” ~Kim-G

This blog is a community meeting spot for polymer clay artists of all skill levels. It is a place for learning and applying new techniques that have been taught over at the Polymer Clay Tutor Video Library.

And for everyone’s benefit, enjoyment, inspiration… there is a Facebook Photo Gallery that makes it quick and easy to share pictures of your polymer clay projects.

The selection of Vol-026-2 Rocker Bead images showcased below, is just a very small sampling from the 516 Facebook photos uploaded to date. Way to go guys! As your Tutor, it makes me very proud to see how much everyone is accomplishing.

A necklace done with the rocker beads would actually be wicked cool. For some reason I have the urge to put on some Rolling Stones music when making these! Leaving the ends as they are really does make them more interesting. ~Koolbraider

    Cindy, thank you for putting my necklace with the rocker beads on here. I love making those. I had some flower cane ends that I made into beads and rolled them into rocker beads.
    Thanks for all your great ideas. I’m really looking forward to the pumpkin cane to go with my glow in the dark cats.

    I was wondering if you could use pearlex or embossing powders on an already fired polymer piece and if you can, how to do it. Thanks, Jeanne

  8. Bette L, 02 November, 2010

    @Jeanne: There are a couple of things you can do to use pearlex on baked polymer. 1. Mix the pearlex with a very small amount of liquid clay and paint it on, then bake. 2. Put a very thin film of liquid clay (I wipe off the excess with a paper towel or cloth) on the places you want the pearlex to stick, then brush on dry powder or use you finger etc, then bake. You only need to bake 10 min.
    These same things can be done with Perfect pearls (PP), but there is one more thing that can be done with PP’s. There is a PP medium that comes with the set of PP’s that can be rubbed on with your finger then apply the dry PP’s powder. This medium is very sticky and waxy, but it holds the powder very well. It does not need to be baked, but would need a finish coat of something to keep it from smudging.
    I would finish with Studio by Sculpey glaze for all of these techniques to make it permanent.
    Hope this helps.

  9. Bette L, 02 November, 2010

    @Jeanne: P.S. You can put embossisng powders on anything but you need to cure it with a heat gun for it to stick to already baked polymer clay (or anything else). That will change the way it looks, glassy instead of powdery. You can also bake it until the embossing powder melts if you don’t have a heat gun.

  10. Phaedrakat, 03 November, 2010

    @Jeanne: Hi! Bette gave you some excellent ideas…you can also mix your PearlEx or Perfect Pearls into a bit of Future or other clay-compatible finish, like the Studio by Sculpey glossy glaze, and use as a “paint”. Once dry, add a full coat of glaze to “seal” it in really well (although that’s not absolutely necessary.)

    As for embossing powder, you could use embossing ink on the baked clay the same way you would on scrapbook paper, or you could use one of the methods Bette mentioned (with the added “melting” step.) But the typical way–especially on a flat surface–is to use ink & a rubber stamp. Ink your stamp well and place it on the baked clay, then add embossing powder to the wet ink. Then use a heat gun to melt the powder, until you get your raised, embossed image… After it’s dry, you may wish to add a finish to protect your design…
