Mica Shift Technique
I created this necklace using the Mica Shift Technique.The technique produces the illusion of a three dimensional design by manipulating the mica within the metallic polymer clay. This striking effect can only be created using metallic polymer clay and it must have a high proportion of mica.
Polymer Clay for Mica Shift
Premo! Sculpey® from Polyform clay worked well for this project because it has a high enough proportion of mica. Click here to be linked to the product page.
