fragments Fragments By Jenny Dowd I love the antique effects we can get with very little effort using polymer clay, textures and acrylic paints. I also love making buttons, so I've combined both for this month's technique. The buttons are meant to resemble 'fragments' or 'shards' of broken carved antiquities and are great fun to make. HowTo Make a Casablanca Bead Drilling Drill Jig: I prefer to drill along the length of the bead instead of across it. If you are lucky enough to have a drill press, this kind of drill press setup will work best. Pin Vise: (For those who aren't that lucky): If you didn't dimple the bead prior to baking, use something like an Xacto blade to start a pilot hole.

While the cutter is still in clay, press out a hollow in a cake base. Remove a cutter and give a cake base right texture with a tooth brush and shape it with a knitting needle.
Rubber Stamping on Polymer Clay 1 There are a number of polymer clays available, Fimo being the easiest to get in Britain (where I live). The only problem with Fimo is that it is very crumbly to begin with and requires a lot of working in the hands (rolling and kneading) to get it to a useful consistency. For the purposes of stamping, a softer clay such as Sculpey or Cernit is preferable. Note that although paper clay is a different material, and much lighter and more delicate than the oven bake (polymer) clays, most of the following can be done with that too, as well as other air-dry clays.
