Old leather belt
Snaps - I used Tandy Line 20
Paint - compatible with leather
Fingernail polish - acetone
Hi All, I tried something new by making a polymer clay fall tree mixed media panel. I've never done any kind of polymer clay wall art so I thought I would stretch creatively to meet the YouTube Creative Arts Collaboration theme for September - #LoveFallArt. The colors in the panel are beautiful fall colors with a stylized tree which has dropped its leaves.
In this tutorial I show you what can go wrong in the studio and how to fix it. Because I'm inexperienced in doing this type of art, I used the wrong kind of panel. What a disaster but there's very little that can't be saved if you're willing to keep trying. Plus you'll know what not to do next time! LOL I hope you enjoy this project. You'll find the tools and materials list following the video. Leave me a comment or ask questions, I really love hearing from you. Thanks for joining me in my studio.
