- 2 oz. Sculpey Premo White polymer clay
- Impression Obsession Tile Design stamps
- Staz-On ink pads or any permanant ink
- DecoArt One Step Crackle
- dark brown acrylic glaze or paint
- sharp clay blade
- pasta machine
- small paint brush
- pin vise with small drill bit
- 12mm jump ring
- length of cording
Condition the polymer clay and roll out a sheet on the thickest setting on the pasta machine.
Stamp your tile images and let the ink dry.
Cut out random tile shard shapes using a sharp, flexible clay blade.
Bake your tile shards following the manufacturers instructions found on the clay packaging and let them cool.
Brush a layer of crackle medium onto the tile shards. (Thick layer = big crackles; Thin layer = tiny crackles) Let dry approx 2 hours.
Brush dark brown glaze or paint over the surface of your tile shards and then wipe off all excess. You want the glaze/paint to only remain in the crackles, not on the surface.
Drill a hole at the top of the shard and put the jump ring through the hole.
String the cording through the jump ring.
The shards can also be used in mosaic projects.
