Step 1: Condition Translucent clay. I rolled my clay through my pasta machine after conditioning. I find it easier to do this when working
Step 2: Add Pearlex
Super copper to the clay. Work it into the clay. You want enough to
make it dark but not too dark because it will darken a little after
baking. It's really up to you how dark you want it!
Step 3: Add Sparkling
Copper Pearlex. You want to use quite a bit. This will give it that
sparkle that real goldstone has! Work it into your clay. Click for Closeup of Mixed Clay
Step 4: Once you are
satisfied with the color and sparkle, then shape and bake. Once out
of the oven, put them in an ice water bath. Sand and buff the beads
to a shine. I also coated them with Future to bring out more
of the sparkle in them!
I hope you have fun with this lesson!
It's simple and fun!!!
