Polymer Clay and Resin

 I have had a few questions about polymer clay lately.  
A few of our readers are worried about using resin with clay.
So I thought I would show you one of my own polymer clay samples.
 I fashioned a bezel out of the clay, stamped into it and baked it according to the polymer clay instructions.  When my piece was hard, I glued and sealed my paper image into the cavity, added some glitter glue and poured in Envirotex Lite resin.
See!  It works beautifully!

Carmi,

I was wondering, what kind of stamps to you use to stamp your polymer and ETI Jewellery Clay? I've tried using metal stamps on crystal clay, but with mixed results.

Thanks. :)

Helen, I used my rubber and clear stamps. I keep a baby wipe handy to clean them after wards. If you apply a clear ink or even a colour ink like Staz-on to the rubber, it adds beautiful texture and detail in one stamp. Images that are not too detailed or fine lined work best.

Thanks Carmi! Can't wait to try this out!
