Second of Two types of faux enameling
Cloisonné has always been a weakness of mine. From the first butterfly pendant my mother gave me to the giant elephants on my mantel, I can't help but admire the lovely colors and shine. I wanted the same look on my polymer clay jewelry. So when I started playing with steam punk design I had to incorporate the shimmer or cloisonné. Heavily inspired by art deco is my first big experiment piece the dragonfly pendant. Each section of the wing had to be carved out, textured, colored and finally glossed. another way is shown on the winged heart and the beetle's wings. I used a stamp to imprint the texture underneath. Do you think it looks like glass enamel? Do you want to learn how to do it? With enough response I will make a tell all tutorial.
