Hello Beads Friends!
Here I am with a new polymer clay video. Today I’m going to show you the new polymer clay cabochons I made taking inspiration from a wonderful book by Donna Kato: The art of polymer clay – Millefiori Techniques. I developed some of the techniques shown in the book and I think that this book is perfect if you are a beginner about polymer clay. I hope that everything is clear and see you soon on the next video.
Have a nice beading!

Hello Beads Friends!
I made these new polymer clay cabochons maybe 3 weeks ago and now I’m here because I want to show them to you, and I want to explain all the steps to create the very simple cane I started from. For the first polymer clay cabochons I used just three colour of Kato Polyclay (white, black and gold) and I used four Kato Polyclay colours (white, black, gold and blue) for the second kind of polymer clay cabochon. I hope that this video can be useful and that my explanations are clear, see you soon on the next video.
Have a nice day!

Hello Beads Friends!
Here I am to talk about some wonderful books I bought on a fantastic web site named bookdepository.com.
I hope that this my review can be useful for you, even if while I’m speaking I make a bilion of grammar errors, because I was so excited about the books, that I wasn’t able to focus on grammar 😀
Happy new year to you all, kisses!

Hello Beads Friends!
It’s about two I months I’m trying a new putty to create cabochon molds. The name of my putty (or rubber) is Ruba Forma, it’s produced by Linearte Sebino, and I bought it in Italy. I have seen a video of a friend of mine where she shows another putty called Melt and Pour, and I think that putty is really very similar to mine. To create a cabochon mold with a flat back that you can use as a base, you need this putty, a polymer clay cutter (or a biscuit cutter) and a cabochon to use as a mold. Put your cabochon into your cutter, then after having mixed the two rubbers, push them on the cabochon, so that you fill the cutter. Push on the upper part of the putty to create a flat surface and then wait 10 minutes, until the putty dries. Your mold now is ready to be use!
I hope everything is clear and see you soon on the next video.
Have a nice beading!

Hello Beads Friends!
In this video I want to show the last abstract cabochons I made. For the amethyst cabochons I used white kato polyclay, translucent premo and translucent lilac fimo. To create the shades that make the cabochons looks like the amethyst stones, I pick up a slice of the cane, and I work with my hands to create a little ball. Then I put that ball into a mold to create the cabochons. For the second kind of cabochons I used a colour called Royal Blue by Cernit and Metallic Silver by Fimo. I hope these cabochons can be an ispiration for you and see you soon on the next video!

Hello Beads Friends!
In this video I want to show the last abstract cabochons I made. For the green cabochons I used white Kato Polyclay, translucent Premo and translucent green Fimo. For the second kind of cabochon I used the same colours of Kato Polyclay and Premo, and I added a colour called Royal Blue by Cernit and glitter silver Fimo. The last three cabochons I show you are made using the same four colours of polymer clays, but I used al lot of translucent Premo, much more than in the previous ones. To create the polymer clay cabochons you have to condition all the polymer clay colours you want to use. Then you have to put all these polymer clay sheets side by side and you have to start mixing all these sheets, in your favourite way. I usually create a roller and then I roll it up and squeeze it, and I roll it up again until I’m satisfied about the colours mix. At this point I cut a piece of my cane and I work it in my hands until it becomes a little ball, and then I use a mold to create my cabochon. It’s really very simple, you just have to mix the colour and nothing else. I hope these cabochons can be an ispiration for you and see you soon on the next video!

Hello Beads Friends!
My butterflies are really crooked, because I found a lot of difficulties in slicing my cane. The translucent premo is harder than the other polymer clays I have used, even harder than the Kato Polyclay, and so the slices of my cane weren’t regular. I hope you enjoy this making of and see you soon on the next video.
Have a nice beading!

Hello Beads Friends!
In this video I want to talk about my experience through the different polymer clay brand that I tried: Sculpey III, Kato Polyclay and Premo by Sculpey. For every polymer clay I tried, I just took few colours, three colours of Sculpey III, three colours of Kato Polyclay and just one colour of Premo, the translucent one. So this my opinion isn’t complete, because just based on this few colours. But I hope that this video will be helpful, and see you soon on the next video.

Hello Beads Friends!
In this video I want to show how to create a Fimo Liquid mold to make polymer clay cabochons. First of all you need Fimo Liquid, one cabochon that’s going to be the mold for your Fimo Liquid Mold (you can use a resin cabochon or a semiprecious stone cabochon) and a little glass bowl.
Put your cabochon into the glass bowl, then fill the bowl with Fimo Liquid until you cover the cabochon. Bake the Fimo Liquid inside the bowl into your electric oven. 
I hope that my explanations are clear and see you soon on the next video.
Have a nice beading!
