Cindy Lietz Blend and Switch Technique

Cindy Lietz never  fails to amaze me with her Polymer Clay knowledge.  Her video lesson this Friday was called Blend and Switch Technique where she created beautiful Mosaic pieces using Polymer Clay.  You can finish them by sanding and buffing, or you can add a resin for a glassy looking finish.

 Here are two bracelets that I made using the technique, and the pieces below that will be made into earrings.  The bottom row has been sanded and buffed using the Micro-Mesh method, and the top row have not been finished yet.

It is always exciting to see someone jump right onto a tutorial and try it right away. Good job on that Loretta! You will see a big difference in how the finish looks when you sand them. Make sure to sand the edges as well, to give them a nice clean finish. I am curious... do you have the Teardrop Blend tutorial? Because it looks to me that your colors aren't blended very far. Each color seems to be blocks of the original color and doesn't shift like they should. You will find the result to be very pretty, if you blend the teardrop blend a little longer. Great job on the bangles. The sanded one is especially lovely. I would like to see the rest of your work when it is finished.

I like the shapes in your blend and switch technique. The colors are so bright and beautiful too.

Love the bangle. Will have to try sometime.
