Polymer Clay Central
B. CHRISTINE BRASHERS

Color has always been of primary importance in my work. When I was working in oils, I applied washes to achieve the vibrancy and depth of color I desired. Even though I was pleased with the results, I often felt something of an anticlimax in that my subject matter required realistic color palettes.

Since I have begun working with polymer clay, I have developed a whole new way of looking at color combinations. Considering that the majority of my work is jewelry, I feel less inhibited by conventional ideas and more willing to experiment with bold new blends of shades.

Polymer has a matte finish naturally, and when combined with shiny glass or metal beads, I find the results exciting. The juxtaposition of matte and shiny creates a textural contrast which highlights the differences of each, much the way that the use of contrasting colors makes each color seem more vibrant.
