Lapis Lazuli Clay

By:

In this Lapis Lazuli Clay tutorial, artist Marie Segal shows us how to make one of her favorite colors with Pinata ink. Follow these instructions to create inexpensive polymer clay crafts that look as though they are made out of a precious stone. This is a great way to add sparkle to jewelry and home decor projects. Use this glittered clay to create beautiful clay beads or make clay canes with a little sparkle and shine. You could even turn a piece of this clay into a lovely pendant or stunning earrings that would be perfect for New Year's Eve.
 

Lapis Lazuli

Materials:

  • Porcelain White Cernit
  • Sapphire Blue Piñata
  • Gold leaf
  • You will need a piece of felt to spread the ink

 

Instructions:

  1. Condition a ¼ block of porcelain white Cernit.
     
  2. Flatten out in to a little pancake about 1/8" to ¼" thick.

  3. Put a couple of drops on to the clay and drag it around the whole surface with the felt and let it dry.

  4. When dry, mix ink into the clay.

  5. Do steps 2 and 3 again, if the color looks really strong you can stop here if not do steps 2 and 3 again. I added ink 3 times in this example. The clay will darken after baking.

  6. Add gold leaf to the top flattened sheet, mix in. It is easier to take the clay to the leaf and pull the clay and the leaf away from the whole sheet than to take the sheet to the clay.

  7. Roll out in the pasta machine. I used the 5th thickest setting and bake pressed to a smooth ceramic tile.

  8. Bake in a preheated 275 degree oven for 30 minutes.
     
  9. Take out of the oven hot and submerge in ice water until cool.
     
  10. Sand and buff or… not!
