At first, I had a grand time building a nautilus and a 3D heart - meticulously sculpting details, adjusting the shape, picking out just the right metal bits to add. When I showed my husband he said, “That’s great Gayle! But how many of those can you make in an hour?!” My answer was a feeble, “Um... one?”

Sculptural work has its place but the hubby had a point - production work is what pays the bills. Which is how I came up with this technique - it’s quick and has beautiful, unique results.

There’s a good combination of simple techniques here, all shown in clear, step-by-step photos with concise written instructions for complete clarity.

Along with the step-by-step techniques for making these simple, stunning pieces, you’ll also learn:

How to work with mica powders
How to create makeshift texture stamps
How to use a pasta machine

More than 80 precisely explained steps and nearly 200 close-up, sharp photos will ensure you are never left confused.

The final product can be used as components such as pendants, earrings, cufflinks, brooches, buttons...even Christmas Tree ornaments!
