After weeks and weeks of fun days in the studio exploring the wonders of EFColor Low Temp Enamels I decided it would be a great idea to create a tutorial. Combining EFColor and polymer clay seems like a match made in heaven, and I have to tell you, it is.
EFColor powders stick really well to raw clay. They also cure beautifully on a cured clay component. There are actually lots of different options but I chose a few simple ones to concentrate on in the tutorial and I love how it turned out.
What are EFColor Low Temp Enamels?
If you read my last blog post you would know EFColor is a powdered resin which cures at a low temp in about 3 – 5 minutes. The finished product is a glossy, slick surface which looks just like vitreous enamel.
There are many different colours to choose from you can create your own custom colour mixes by simply combining powders.
There are specialist tools which can be purchase for use with EFColor Low Temp Enamels but I managed to get a little creative and made lots of my own. They were inexpensive and easy to make and I share how to do this is the tutorial.
This tutorial contains lots of information and inspirational images. I share instructions on how to use stencils, silkscreens and other resists on your polymer clay. There are also lots of application methods and finishing methods which are covered as well.
I really do love how some of the colours combine so beautifully – it’s highly addictive.
There are loads of inspiration images included in this tutorial and if you look carefully you’ll be able to see how some of the gorgeous art earrings are made.
