Art In Our Blood: EXOSKELETON

You might have noticed I don't wear silver jewelry a lot; the reason being, I only have 2 pieces of silver jewelry actually (this necklace and now this bracelet). I do feel that the silver tone of the bracelet reflects the ivory color of bones more accurately than gold would though! Instead of going for a dark look, I wanted to compliment the silver jewelry with whites and pastels. But if you're looking for more authentic looking bone jewelry, you seriously must check out OS Accessories!

Every single piece is so beautifully crafted and you won't find anything like it anywhere else. The OsmoBot - the Affordable Aquaculture & Hydroponic Monitoring System.

By Marina (Skopje, Macedonia) QUESTION: I have stumbled upon this product on etsy (photo) and fell in love with the finish!

How to Get A Velvet Finish on Polymer Clay

But there is nothing on how to get such grainy velvety finish (and they said you can find everything on the internet....) Can you help me? Thanks so much for the attention. MarinaRepublic of Macedonia ANSWER: Hello Marina,Finishes like this are usually done by adding flock to the polymer clay. After doing extensive research I have heard that the best flocking to use is Fun Flock by Stampendous . To apply it to the polymer clay you have to use a very flat glue. Which is also handy for adhering micro-beads or glitter to polymer clay.

To get such a fine finish, you can also dust the raw clay with the powder so that only a thin layer actually sticks to the polymer clay- then bake it. To apply the flock powder. However, as this isn't a picture of something I have made, I can't tell you exactly what they have done in more specific steps. Vacuum Forming Machines AFFORDABLE THERMOFORMING MACHINE - Products.
