- Polymer clay - white, black and/or glittered works best
- Pasta machine or clay roller
- A variety of rubber stamps and/or texture plates
- Luminarte Primary Elements powders
- Work the clay to soften it. Put the clay through the roller to flatten.
- Lay the clay over your stamp or texture plate. Press gently and then lift off.
- Lightly touch your finger tip to one of the powders and gently rub the powder across the clay piece. The powder will catch the raised portions of the clay and make your image pop. You can also add beads at this stage.
- Cut your clay to desired shape and size. Bake tiles according to the package directions.
