Steampunk Design Part 1: Concept

Posted by on Jun 23, 2012 in Videos | 9 comments

This is the first video for the design demo. There is just too much to cover in 1 vid, so in this section I talk about “concept” and the steps I take when I am thinking up new ideas and designs. Part 2 will talk about layout, and the final vid will be execution the design. Please feel free to comment and ask questions.

Trying to cover a bunch of fun stuff in this video! I discovered Lisa Pavelka’s polymer clay stamps, especially the steampunk ones, and ohmigoodness! WHAT FUN! We now carry them at www.bsueboutiques.com; watch this video and I’ll attempt to show you how they work with clay to make cute pendants and charms. I will also show you how to make the clay POP once it’s baked, with Gilder’s Paste. I will also show you further options using VIVA Precious Metal Paints INSTEAD of Gilder’s Paste, over the clay. I also demonstrate applying Gilder’s to polymer clay beads while using the easy-peasy plastic rack I made in an earlier video. I love to play with clay, and that’s why B’sue Boutiques now carries many clay colors (just added new ones today), cool texture stamps, basic tools and glazes. Polymer clay beads are the perfect thing to go with our beautiful bead caps and American made brass findings in six finishes. I hope you enjoy the video! As always I appreciate your visits to http and hope you will come and see us soon! Thanks for your patronage and also, your great ideas! Be sure to check out B’sue Boutiques Creative Group at Flickr, where you may upload your polymer clay designs. Check my video list for a video that talks about the group!

  5. i don’t like one thing: impression makers the sheet thingies, i don’t like how there are multiple stamps on there instead of like a single stamp
