Creating Faux Batik on Polymer
Learn how to create an exotic faux batik look on polymer clay with award-winning artist, best-selling author and “artrepreneur” Lisa Pavelka.
Discover how Lisa replicates the look of this Indonesian textile art with individually-colored clays.
Lisa will guide you through creating her "Textile Effect" that resembles screen printed fabric, followed by her surface technique for creating a "crackle" overlay pattern.
Watch close-up as she teaches you how to include crystal accents and trinkets, plus learn finishing techniques that will have you guessing if it’s real or faux batik.
**BONUS** Included is a bonus video with Lisa's special tips for adding stones and BLING!
